I think he is still "cool" in my point of view. He and also Edge, Larry and Adam, especially Adam, but each one with his own "coolness" I think.

The Fly, Mirrorball and MacPhisto were awesome but don't forget that they were pure acting... but those were great moments

To me Bono is like a fine wine, he keeps getting better with age. He is still a very cool person, wrinkles and all.

When Bono sang 'I Will Follow' on SNL, there was no question about his cool factor... the show's regulars where jumping, shouting, some of the women were in tears. That night, there was no cooler man in NYC.

omg the end of SNL... i still can't believe he did that!! that wasn't cool, that was HOT to the nth degree.

As far as I'm concerned Bono nor the rest of the band will ever be quite as cool as they were during ZooTV (or Popmart, though I'm sure many disagree with me, I thought they were quite badass). However, I'd say they are all still extremely cool and just as cool as, if not more so, they were during Elevation tour.

Bono will always be cool, and Edge will always be cooler and Edge will always be hot, but Bono will always be hotter

If any of you were around to really experience the transistion between JT and AB, everyone thought Bono lost it. He came out wearing leather and these ridiculous oversized wrap around sunglasses and everyone thought "what the hell?" He was not cool. He then made it cool.

Live Aid he jumped off stage and embraced a girl, everyone ragged on him, later it became a pivotal moment for U2.

Bono shaved his head for Pop, some people still hate it others think it's it's his coolest moment.

No one has stood there on stage and cried about his father, sung about Africa, and talked about religions trying to get along in a tour. Some will thing he's uncool, but those who wear their heart on their sleeves usually come off that way, but one day we'll look back and think how fucking cool was he. During a time where music is about building up walls around our insecurities Bono tore them down.

that's one hell of a great quote.


to me, Bono was never cooler than at the Grammy's 1994 for the acceptance of zooropa best alternative album/sinatra induction speech.

man......


anyone from PLEABA got some pics of that?

I'll second that. If you want to talk about how 'hot' Bono is, go back to PLEBA. And 'hot' doesn't have squat to do with 'cool'.

And frankly, I don't give a shit if Bono's 'cool'. He's a bloody awesome person to me, and that's all that I care about.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
