At the airport, the ghost of Christmas Bono

I posted this because it mentions the real Bono's whereabouts on Monday night, not to give this dude attention.
Bono not in Dublin working on the new album, must be on a long Christmas break.





At the Airport, the Ghost of Christmas Bono



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


He had the look -- the slicked-back hair, the scruff, the sunglasses at night, the earring. He wore one of those red Gap T-shirts that's supposed to help us save Africa.

And when the crowds at the airport recognized him and started begging for autographs and cellphone pics and hugs, he was just as groovy and agreeable about it as you'd expect.

But no, alas, that was not Bono on Southwest's Flight 1324 from LAX to BWI with a layover in Nashville Monday night.

That was not the world-famous rock-star humanitarian schlepping a guitar case out of baggage claim and waiting for his friend Jerry to pick him up.

The real Bono, we can report, was in New York. And the man at the airport?

"I don't know if he actually claimed to be Bono or if he just let people assume he was," fellow traveler Andrea Solarz said. "I did get an autograph for my niece, but it's just a scribble."

Who is FauxBono? If you know, tell us at reliablesource@washpost.com.

I'm sure Bono has the superhuman ability to be in two places at the same time...I mean, WHAT CAN'T THE MAN DO?

I think I have a feeling who this was.... the profile sounds very familiar, especially the part where he lets the crowd believe he's Bono.....

Yep, we all know who it was. Wonder if he signed any autographs with the B-man's name?

The report asked for input on who the fake Bono might be, so I emailed saying that it was probably you know who. She emailed me back once saying she'd talked to him on the phone and it was definitely him.

I scanned the original article from the Washington Post, which includes a picture of you know who.

Can anyone explain to me why we cannot use his name here? He is a public figure, he makes a living off of this, and this is his own doing... he has not been dragged in to the public arena as some sort of innocent victim! This is ridiculous!!

And, speaking of ridiculous... "slicked back hair"?!?! Not for about four years now!!!

I think he actually looks more like Colin Ferral (sp?) than Bono from that angle.

Why can't he just tell people that he's not Bono? That's a little dishonest to let people believe that he is and not say anything. And to even sign autographs!

I love the last bit on that article "The real Bono doesn't spend a lot of time waiting at baggage claim" Yep, I don't think the real Bono (TM) schlepps a lot of his own luggage these days...

Because we hurt his feelings and he contacted Elvis and cried


You know what my theory is? He actually doesn't care about looking like the real Bono. He only cares about looking enough like Bono to fool the average person on the street. The fans are the ones in tune enough with Bono to know that his hair is short and that he never wears the product (RED) t-shirts, etc. But the fans are also the ones who would never fall for this guy. He wants to fool the average people, so he emulates their vague perception of Bono, rather than the real thing.
