    Perhaps Bono threatened to get his mate Udo Lindenberg to sing at them, if they caught him?

    To be fair, if someone threatened me with an Udo song, I'd do whatever they wanted in order to avoid hearing it! :eek:

    Or JFK, although the queue to play Oswald might be quite long.

    Fucking hell anarchists really are useless, not being able to catch bono with his wee stumpy legs.

    From reading about the formation of U2 etc etc, it seems he was always a nob.

    Me and our Jerzi thought that when we walked out of the Limit club in Sheff in 1980 after they had done three songs, dreadful, bo-no a full on poseur, never seen them live since and never bought owt they released.
    Still think he's a nob.

    When reading the accounts of the band formation by the other members, he was already a well known as a complete knob head around town. He kind of wiggled his way in, in a kind of 'you need me' way. What a tit. Sadly they probably did need him though.
    I'm not sure how they ever made it. There early songs seem to be loose jams with one note delayed guitar all over them. Clearly there is something there, but they are beyond lucky. How they took the simple minds crown I have no idea (actually it was probably when SM went all 'streetfighting years' on everyone), at least simple minds put in the time and effort.

    My god, even this self-aggrandising bollocks is invented. As if anyone non-authorised could get close to the dublin messiah in 2007. And yes of course anyone with criticisms of bono is by definition an anarchist, an crazy - not the bloke who in that interview deigned to compare himself to and appropriate Seamus Heaney. (And that phrase make bono history was around years before 2007 btw).

    3 of them (Mullen, Evans and Hewson). Clayton was more interested in smoking weed.

    I've run into Clayton's parents a couple of times in Mayo over the years, they apparently take a dim view of the Bono fellow.

    One of my cousins plays the violin on this one (but she's not in the video):

    The late and great Stuart Adamson, who was actually quite close to Dave Evans (The Edge), apparently used to tease him by asking "what's it like working with an arsehole on legs?". :)

    on the subject of hanging he was outraged at the hanging of Saddam Hussein on the sole grounds that the ones that did it were wearing leather jackets that made them look like ....Serbians...:eek::eek:...:facepalm:, according to Bono . Theres so much wrong in that analysis, not least the fact it was the fault of his 2 genocidal mates who destroyed a nation..its hard to know were to begin .

    so middle eastern hangmen should have better fashion sense, look less menacing, and ...um...Serbian.

    The name was picked from a shop that sold hearing aids under the name "Bona Vox". It's still there, just off O'Connell street.

    Similar thing happened to me at the supermarket. Too much shopping, thought the boot was closed, got home and it had opened! Oh the life of an international rock star.
