Bono's earrings

I was wondering when did Bono first start wearing earrings? Could someone please post pics of him with our without them so we can determine a time frame of when he got them? We can also look at all his different types of earrings. I think they are mostly hoop ones but we can look!

I don't havwe a scanner so I can't post any pictures, but I think that Bono started to wear earrings just before Joshua Tree days. In the the video Pride or Unforgettable fire he isn't wearing any. At first he only wore one, but during the Zoo TV tour he wore two. As far as I know he has always only woren hoops.

slightly off topic, but i find it odd that sparky is the only one who doesn't wear earrings! *esp. considering that he was the 'bad boy' of the band!*

ScottPhisto and I were watching the Joshua Tree documentary and he (finally) noticed that Edge's left ear is pierced above the lobe. And I told him "Well yeah, that's so you can still suck on his earlobe!"

ScottPhisto: *combust*

I agree Maria, it's one of those things that's always made me think: hmmmmm...what's up with that anyway, Sparky??

Larry was the first one to wear an earring, then Bono, then Edge....I've always thought that Bono's left earring was uncentered, and always wondered why Edgie chose to put that one little earring where he did, and always wondered, what's on Larry's earrings? One is a cross, the other one...???

I did notice some pre-JT ones, but they were only little burgundy colored dot things. I think he started after the UF tape was made. I don't think he had them at Live Aid or Amnesty.

Here is a pic from Amnesty in 1986 I don't see any but I can't really tell because of his hair.


Oh but he had one in 1985 in Live Aid, it IS kind of off center isn't it?

Speaking of Bono's ears and stuff....

Last night I was at a Christmas party with the U2LA-ers and a girl at the party was showing that picture that was circulating around from In Style's Halloween pictoral... you know the one... the one with the guy in in a black mask, red shock of flame hair and a studded thingie around his neck. Anyways. So, they said it was Bono.

Moonie: Nuh-uh. It's not Bono.

Other Girl: Yes it is! I was at LA1 and said to Bono as he was coming in, 'I liked your Halloween Costume!' He turned to me and said, 'wow, thank you. How did you know about that?'

Moonie: That's not Bono. He doesn't have GIGANTOR ears like that. Bono's ears are little. And, the fact that the person wearing that wig is BALD tells me it's not Bono.

Other Girl: Well, In Style put it up on their site. It's Bono.

*****************

At this point, I gave up. If she wants to think it's Bono, then sure, fine, whatever. I know it's not Bono because he was a yummy vampire with little ears, not some flame jester with big ol' GIGANTOR ears. 'Nuff said.

Moonie

If you ask me, I think it's all about drums.

I agree with you. The guy who was in that costume was Patrick Stewart who is bald and wears no earrings. The reason Bono acknowledged the Halloween costume comment was because he did go to a party. He and Gavin Rossdale went as vampires. He probably thought that's what the person meant.

Why does the thought of this really turn me on?

WOW-Bono and Gavin as vampires. If I had been at that party, I think I definitely would have offered my neck to them.
