Between Pop and ATYCLB: Hella nerd thing going on.

After that it's just boring and it sort of was to begin with actually.


I think nowadays it's just Too Much Guinness Bono or something, judging by the few recent pictures that have made their way to this thread or EYKIW.

Oh wow.

I wish I'd had that first one for my DEAD CAT demotivational poster. I would've just changed it to DEAD SKUNK and it would've worked perfectly.

And yes, I heard that! Now I just need to, you know, win Lotto.
*checks Popmart pics*

I guess it was pretty short, dunno about shaved. I don't think it was much longer for the last leg of the Vertigo tour (/Best Of Tour).




I didn't think mullets suited anyone...

Guinness is low-carb, equivalent to orange juice in calories. Actually, I think Bono was as much of or more of a Heineken drinker, as much as I hate to break the stereotype.

But, I think Too Much Beer Bono appears between every tour, even going back to the 80s.

It looked pretty shocking on the last leg of Vertigo too! But the whole band looks shocking nowadays. Larry looks like he's in the throes of midlife crisis-inspired delusions of youth. Edge the same, really, but with a trace of dignity. And Adam looks like he's older than the Rolling Stones and has one foot in the grave already, but again with dignity.

And I think Bono did suit his mullet at various points. I've never found his hair that laughable on UABRS, for instance. Though the Dead Skunk one is hysterical. When is that from?

I think somebody pointed that out after the "GUINNESS: Sorry PLEBA" poster, actually. Shows how much I know about beer.

Too Much Beer Bono was definitely out in force for Womanfish, though perhaps in a different way ...

well to me Edge and Adam look better now than they ever have. Larry looks except for the long hair thing. . . . .Bono will always be slightly wrong with his too long sleeves but that's what makes him so right..

Adam looks like he should be sitting at the fireside, reading stories to his grandkids after a day tending to his petunias and chrysanthemums.

I really don't think I wore out Loveless. I actually can't think of any album I've worn out; the albums I play to death, I tend to just like more and more. I haven't listened to Loveless in months now; it honestly bores me in parts and doesn't hold much attraction. Might have to give it another spin though.

Righto, I'll give those albums a try. Also, what do you think of Spiritualized? I've heard Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space praised as one of the greatest albums of all time, but never gotten around to downloading it.
I'll be here 'til then, don't worry.

Guess it's just different strokes for Loveless, really. It was briefly my favourite shoegaze album late last year and early this year, but some of it does sound sort of tired now. I wear out things quite badly, which is especially frustrating as I find it hard to discover music I genuinely enjoy to begin with.

Never listened to Spiritualized, I thought they were more post-Shoegaze. I do have a collection of Spacemen 3, though.

Seeing that Rolling Stones trailer before U23D was interesting... I've seen better looking fossils. Adam isn't quite THAT dessicated yet!

Yeah, UABRS was fine. I didn't even notice that was a mullet...
No idea about the Dead Skunk era... it looks UF-ish though. Although maybe that's just the Japanese text confusing me...

He probably is. I'm sure he has a lot of kids running around that we don't know about.

It was probably me. Mainly because Guinness is more or less the only low-carb beer I remotely enjoy, and so I always remember that.

Looks a little like both ways, I think.

The baldness thing aside (although that's not really age-related in this case), I think Edge has probably aged best (least?) out of all of them.
