Been having fun with my new scanner/printer/photocopying machine...

and my new computer with it's Windows XP Home edition system!

And here are some to the things I finally got to scan to share with all of you here...

The first one needs a litte background info; Every year, here in Finland, we have a national tango singing contest where one man and one woman is crownd Tango King and Queen, to which anyone who thinks they can sing can take part in. There are first regional contest then the best from reach region goes unto the semifinals then the finals are televised live for the whole nation to see and vote on your favourite. And the girl in the picture in the article was crownd last years Tango Queen. This article appeared in one of Finlands weekly magazine called "7 "in september.



The whole title(which you can't see)says:- Bono of U2 congratulates!

The text in the red box says:- "7" reporter Mia Malmi introduced Kati to U2s leadsinger Bono who asked "So you're Finnish tango singer?"

The text in the yellow star says:- Kati froze ( ) with joy!

Okay next up photos of U2 from 1982 RuisRock! I got these photos from a friend ages ago. They're not the best quality but thought some of you here might appreciate seeing them...





Edge



Adam



And Bono up to his old tricks...

And here's a few scans of a couple of photos from a Danish newspaper I picked up last summer in Copenhagen...








And finally, I couldn't find the thread with the fan art, so here's my drawing of Bono....



...and here's the 'model'!




Scanned from my Rattle and Hum songbook.

Me too. Looks like they are turned inward because of all those years of squeezing them into boots. I guess that's why he wears the wide ones now, his feet probably hurt now that he's getting on.

But GREAT pics, thanks for posting, awesome, gorgeous!

he prolly has bunions. i have them too , it causes the toes to turn inwards - in my case cuz of high heel wearing but in bono's case.... prolly coz of the same thing!
