What's up with Bono???

I was just watching the Unforgettable Fire documentary on the Slane DVD and when they're back in the studio and they want Bono to sing and he says "I'll do some scat singing if it's any help to you" he looks sick or, for lack of a better words, like he needs to go to the loo . . . does anyone have any idea? after that, when he's singing in the studio, he seems fine, but was Bono just being weird??

Ah, sorry. Knackered meaning very tired/exhausted.

thank you, and that would make sense . . . they talk later saying "its been a hard two days" still, don't you want to point him in the direction of the bathroom, it looks like he needs to go . . .

Maybe it's because he swallowed some fire. (Check towards the end of the documentary: he puts a lit match in his mouth!)

Haha, I get a kick out of that-it's things like that that sometimes make me wonder if he's not of this world .

He does look tired in that documentary-the whole band does (that one part where Larry looks like he's falling asleep on the couch...awww, poor guy ...). Can't say I'd blame them, either-long, long time to be doing all that stuff (also, Eno and Lanois and the band and others who were working with them on that album are all freakin' geniuses...it amazes me how they understand exactly what they need to do to get such and such song just right and what buttons to move around to make this sound better or that sound faster or slower or whatever. I have a ton of respect for people who make albums).

...I love the dance, too, it's so adorable and funny . He's a real cutie in that documentary (heh, my mom watched it with me, and she just sat there going, "I can't believe how young he looks here!" ).

It's fun to see the band at the point when they were entering their prime...

I have a new word in my vocabulary! This girl from the U.S. South is going to be using the word "knackered".
*looking forward to weird looks*
