Have you ever heard of this?
 
In the new album, there is an email address towards the back of the booklet. I e-mailed, asking for information about autograph requests. The reply this morning said, "I'm sorry, but the band only does autographs for charities they support." WHAT? :down:

tell them you have AIDS, maybe they will send you an autograph then. :sexywink:

Well imagine if they had to send out autographs to hundreds of thousands of millions of fans? We all know they (especially Bono) have no problem signing autographs on the street.

Makes sense. Then any Joe Schmo could just ask them to mail him an autograph and then turn around and make a buck off of it.

Haha that's totally cool.

Seems kinda odd to put the email there though in the first place. Or it should at least say, "only for charities" or "no autograph requests"

But even so, how do these charities know theyre supported by U2?? If they are they probably already have contact. :huh:


What is the purpose of this email address then? :hmm: I cant imagine they take kindly to it being a Q&A line for the band.

astepcloser24 03-03-2009 03:57 PM

There was an address and then an email address. Rather than write out a letter and having to take it to the post office (since I'm in the US), I decided to try out the e-mail address first. I know that they regularly sign autographs in the street, but when am I ever going to meet U2? I mean, it would make my life if I had a chance like that to actually physically meet the band, but I don't count myself that lucky. So, I thought a letter, an e-mail... something... would suffice.

Maybe it's like the Catcher in the Rye thing in the film "Conspiracy Theory" and they're monitoring emails sent to the address for a certain word or phrase, and only when they're alerted will they respond :hmm:





:reject:

I love those autographs! :lol: :heart:

Wonder if any instant messenger is associated with it, could be Larrys MSN. :hmm:

Sicy, would you like me to send you my autograph? :flirt:

Sicy 03-03-2009 05:16 PM

Only if it has paw prints on it.

(sorry for the hijack)

Honestly, why would an adult want an autograph in the first place? What's an adult gonna do with another adult's signature? I could understand getting a photo of a star or with a star, but an autograph? I was an intern at a radio station once and I ran in to some semi famous people. If you asked for a someone's autograph, you looked like a tool. But, people had no problem taking a photo with you. A photo is something you could put up somewhere and say I met this person and they were nice enough to take a photo with me. In the original poster's case, I would've settled for a photo or something with a U2 graphic on it.

In the day and age of Ebay, bands hardly send out autograph request anymore, and honestly like MrPryck2U said, what's the point?

Especially with a story like that. You show someone – “Oh cool! You met U2! How was that? ” “Err, no, I just sent an email to their office and they sent it to me” “Oh. Awesome story. That must have been quite an experience.”
