People need to get a clearer definition of a mullet....

I just read an article on u2log.com about Bono's current "mullet." Bono does not have a mullet at this time. Bono had a semi-mullet on the War tour, he had a massive one during the UF tour, but that's it. People seem to have the idea that any hair that's even slightly longer than average is a mullet. These fools are wrong, wrong I say! A mullet is short in the front and long in the back. Why can't they get that concept? I think mullet should be added to the dictionary for clarification....

See, I'm a guy with relatively long hair compared to what most guys have now, though it's absolutely not a mullet. I'm dreading the day someone uses the 'M' word to describe it.

I stand by my statement that Bono hasn't had a serious mullet since the mid-80's. But, oh, what a mullet....

I am just amused by the entire gamut of mullets and mullet-wannabes and near-miss-mullets. It's all highly entertaining to me for some reason.

I don't think Bono has a mullet but whatever it is, he looks very handsome.

I agree with you. I bet you and your hair look hot! If any ignorant geek uses the 'm' word, KICK HIS ASS! You rock, dustybot!

It may not ever happen though, from what I've seen such ignorance on the definition of a mullet seems to be confined to certain parts of the internet, mainly this forum and U2log, and most people in real life have never heard the word.

GQ: But you must regret the mullet.

Bono: I regret that my hair looked like it had been pressed by an iron at the back when we did Live Aid. That's still very hard to deal with.

Yeah I don't remember his hair looking like this at ALL in boston- tho that's prolly due to sensory overload.. but *sheepishly* when i saw this pic a while ago, I thought it was Fly era! I put it on my webpage under Acthung..aww lol I thought he looks like the Fly here!!

I was saddened during the Superbowl Halftime show when I saw that Bono had gotten the back of his hair cut.

That Harvard picture looks a little deceiving... looks like there's a thick black shadow somewhere back there... his hair doesn't actually extend that far down his back, if you look closely.

But anyway, yeah mullets need to be redefined... those first two pictures are perfect examples--yuck!

As was I. I'm surprised more people didn't notice it. It happened at the WEF, it wasn't like that the first day but it was the second. I think it's too short now, I like the Boston hairstyle on him.



You people need to stop defending that pic of Bono in Boston, there is no reason to, there is nothing wrong with it. Those are some of the best Bono pics I have ever seen. Though I am not a fan of the gray haired mullet guy in that pic, I have no problem with Bono's mullets from the 80's, ironed or not, they looked fine. What's the big deal anyway?

Have to agree with ya there, Stormy.. I only like the mullet when it does NOT look like a beaver attacked Bono's head. But I really like the Boston photo. I have a weakness for the somewhat long in back, and the longer curlier hair in front. Not sure why. I love it though -- in my opinion, the shorter hair makes him look older, for some reason.

"Bono looks too intense for me." - Rollercoaster Tycoon park guest

"I was drunk, high on him, a shrinking, shadowboxing dwarf following in his foosteps...badly...STARSTRUCK.." - Bono, on meeting Frank Sinatra for the first time

"Bono? Bono is going to tie ropes around my neck? Wait a minute.." - Edge, when shooting the 'Numb' video

Thank you Elevatedmole! That's what I thought, and what my family thought too. The shorter hair makes him look older and heavier in the face and more wrinkled in the neck. The longer hair framed his face and neck better and drew more attention to his eyes and smile instead. I don't know why he did it. The sad thing is it looks like someone just grabbed it and hacked it off, the bangs and the top layers are still just as long. Since it changed overnight from the first day of the WEF to the next, maybe that did happen, maybe someone told him it was too long to talk to those old stuffed shirts or something. I do hope he will trim the top a little to blend in and then let it all grow out long together. I, too, have a weakness for hair that is longer in the back!

Here is an example of how bad it looked, ouch:



When he walked it looked so short I nearly cried!



When he leaned his head back it looked better



When he turned sideways you could hardly tell it at all, this pic is good!
