Bono copying Gavin Friday?

Anyone else think that Bono's trying to copy Gavin Friday? He wears the boots like him-wears hair like him-and talks like him. No?

I don't think Bono has to or does copy anyone....He a pretty unique guy.

It's funny, Gavin's actually been seen sporting some of Bono's stuff. He wore one of Bono's jackets to the Golden Globes, as well as the Selima sunglasses Bono wore early Elevation.

Yet, during Elevation, Bono was seen wearing an embroidered shirt that Adam wore for some of the pictures in the 2001 (? I think) U2 calendar.

My humble opinion...

I really don't believe Gavin's copying Bono. Gavin is unique and unlike anything I had ever seen before. They might be getting little things from each other like the shoes and other trivial stuff.
But when you listen to Gavin's music and what he has to say you will notice that he has his own thing going on.

I think Bono should be proud to have such a friend like Gavin. (By the way, without Gavin the song With or Without You would have ended up in the thrash instead of on the Album.. Bono admitted that himself!)

Read this old thread if you're really interested in this comparison between Bono and Gavin Friday.. A lot of useful info in here..

Bono and Gavin have been friends since they were eleven years old. It makes perfect sense that they would copy one another's styles. And if you want to get technical, Larry has been wearing Creepers (those chunky shoes) since the 80s, and Bono's been wearing them all through the Vertigo tour.

I'm sure Gavin "copies" Bono just as much as Bono "copies" Gavin. if you're best friends, it makes sense to have similarities, style included.

I totally agree. I saw Gavin perform on Thursday night with a few old mates that had never seen him before and they commented that his mannerisms were at time similar to Bono, but we all agreed that Bono has Gavinisms and Gavin has Bonoisms, and if you want to analyse it, I would say that Bono takes more from Count Friday than the reverse.

I just finished that book and yes that was true, that was a while ago though, and its true friends like they are usually unintentionally take on others likes and qualities. People think that myself and my best friend are sisters.

Ah, I'd forgotten about that, but it certainly does ring a bell. Also, the photo of the two of them in the book also has the caption: "Bono and Gavin Friday in the middle of turning into eachother."

It was Gavin who found the Macphisto shades, and the horns in the Bill Flanagan book. They joked Bono was doing a lot of Gavinisms with his Macphisto character. Gavin joked he was going to start waving a white flag at his concerts, (this was in the early 90's). They're best friends it's quite natural for friends to emulate each other.
