U2 Producer Steve Lillywhite's Side Gig: Selling CDs at KFC Indonesia


Producer Steve Lillywhite has an impressive resume: he's helmed releases from U2, Morrissey, and the Rolling Stones. But he also has a side hustle, and it's a strange one: he selects the music that's sold at KFCs in Indonesia.

Lillywhite is the CEO of Jagonya Music & Sport Indonesia, a company that sells CDs at the chicken chain--think Starbucks music compilations, only the artists sold by Lillywhite's company are new and original. Their music just happens to be sold at KFC

Lillywhite says Bono knows about his side gig and is "obsessed".
