U2 looking old?

I guess it has to happen. The members of U2 are starting to look old. I mean, Edge's beard is almost entirely white, Adam's hair is turning grey very fast, and Bono looks very old when he does not shave. Larry looks like he did in 1985. I think that should burn those colored sunglasses and never wear them again. Just stick with the black ones. And he should also shave! Edge should just shave that white stuff off his face. The facial hair has served him well, since the Joshua Tree, but maybe now it's time to part. And Adam........well, grey hair just makes him look even cooler. Keep it! Bono was voted on of the worst dress people at the Golden Globe awards. I kinda agree.

Considering they are one of the longest running bands with the same lineup, I'd say they look pretty good.

I don't understand how someone in a tux can be voted "worst dressed". They all look the same.

Larry looks the same.
Adam looks cool, no matter how "old" he looks.
Edge just needs to color his goatee, he doesn't look old otherwise.
Bono on the other hand, looks like he's falling apart, and has since about 1999. He looks worse when his shades are off (see the "New York" performance on the Elevation DVD). Keep the shades Bono, please.

I have no clue why anyone in their right mind would talk to that old senile windbag Joan Rivers to begin with.

There have been fights on the forum re: how U2 is aging, so let's make sure to keep it constructive and polite.

I agree, Bono looks oldER, but not just OLD. He honestly looks really different when you see him in the flesh. I was thinking that he was really starting to look older, but then when I met him last month, he looked totally different. He's a lot more vibrant and alive looking in person. Even on my own pictures, he looks kinda sullen, but the entire time he was with us he was really happy and cheerful and looked really great. He's also a lot smaller than he looks on camera. I wouldn't be worried.

I disagree with several of you. Bono looking OLDER since 1999? I think he was looking terribly old in the late 90's, especially in the interviews on that Making Of the JT DVD and VH-1 Legends, and Sweetest Thing video. In those heavy rimmed black rhinestoned glasses, he was taking on the look of a sterotypical middle aged office man. Then came ATYCLB and Elevation and it was like the nerd in the movie who gets a makeover, loses the dorky glasses, unslicks the hair, and starts dressing cooler. By late 2000 I was amazed at how much younger and cooler he looked, got his looks back IMO! What an improvement! Now, he's fine, but I think he looks younger without the stubble and the shades. I hope he will always keep dyeing his hair dark, he'd look older if he let it go gray, don't do it!

Larry, I don't see all this 'youthfullness' people claim he has. He looks his age to me, which is not a bad thing. Maybe nobody noticed he's changed since he never ever changes his look

Edge just wouldn't look right without his beard, even if it is gray. As long as he keeps the beanie ON he'll look okay.

Adam, sorry, but I think he's looked old as the hills since the JT days and now looks like he could pass for the other three's father, or at least much older brother. If he'd grow his hair out some and dye it golden blond he would look a lot younger IMO. I like his new no glasses look, I wonder if he got contacts or laser eye surgery?

Maybe all the closeup pics we post are making some notice their little wrinkles more than most people would. Of course they're not 25 anymore and never will be again, but they're still cool and good looking.

Seriously who is she to judge anyone else and who gives a damn about her opinion? Speaking of getting OLD, how many facelifts has she had?
