Do you agree or disagree with Bono.

Maybe its just AKAI vcrs? Except yours is okay so who knows. I don't have a VCR anymore. I gave up after that experience.
Maybe I'm just lucky? Who knows. This thing's still going strong. I haven't bought a DVD player yet - no use, my computer plays and burns them and I prefer to watch DVDs on here. If I could play videos on my computer I'd give the Akai back to Mum.

Disagree. The 'fro was what made Adam the "coolest kid on the street".

When U2 come to Australia, I plan on growing an afro and going to a gig as Frodam. My hair's perfect for replicating it - now all I need are early-eighties Adam-ish glasses and that horrendously bright green sweater from the performance of Stories For Boys on the Late Late Show on 15 January 1980.

Brilliant! Actually, glasses may not be necessary, I've seen some early concerts where he went without his glasses, US festival, Red Rocks.

btw I also disagree with Bono.

True, he didn't always wear glasses - but I need to wear mine! I am thinking that I will somehow try to disguise my glasses so that they look more like a pair Adam wore. Not totally sure how I'll do that, though. Maybe it won't make a difference. I'll grow the 'fro, get the green sweater, and see how it all looks.

I think Bono thinks he was the coolest kid on the street.
