Didn’t someone get coffee with Bono?

A while back I remember reading something about Bono going to get coffee with some fans that were waiting for his autograph. Does anyone remember that? Could someone either post the story here or point me in the direction of that thread?


Thanks

You must be referring to Mrs. Edge. She posted about having coffee with Bono circa ZooTV. Here's the thread:

Very awesome story. So much for a coffee and a chat, I'd be at a loss for words

I'll have to read that thread again, but I don't remember reading what they talked about while they were getting coffee.

Well I just found this thread from 2002 where she posts her full story.

I'm sure she wouldn't mind if I link to it... although I wouldn't feel right providing her picture here, Galeongirl, maybe you could e-mail her for it

yes I know, I wish I were more articulate sometimes, too--when it comes to expressing my feelings about this band, I tend to sound more like a rambling fool than anything else

She wrote a very nice story indeed!

I read that essay on "The U2 Obsession Explained". Very well done.

And for what it's worth, I don't think U2 will ever fade away. Bono's gob will make sure of that!! No, when U2 go out, it'll be with a big bang. Like jumping down the Grand Canyon on a motorcycle.

Wow, what a surprise to run into this thread!

Thank you all for your nice comments about my writing. When I am inspired by the topic, I can blather on at quite a rate! I haven't read that essay since the last time I posted it, so it was quite a trip down memory lane. I had a great laugh.

I will post the picture (it is dreadful - It was taken with a disposable and the flash wasn't working too well. I was very red and had just closed my mouth from smiling so I look really strange, but at least Bono looks good) and the autographs. If you still can't see it, I'd be happy to email it.

Awww, thanks!

I was in an absolute state of shock, but also completely calm, as is how most people feel when they meet him. What a guy!

I'm sure your time will come.

Not sure what this is in reference is to? Or was that Bono going out for coffee with another group of fans?

oh I hope my time will come ^^
the only thing vancouver sticks in my mind was during Yahweh, at one of the shows.. Bono made a mistake.. he pulled up a wrong girl.. she couldn't keep her hands off him... kept grabbing his arse.... and he didn't like that! but he stayed polite and got her offstage again...

I have the clip from Vancouver if you want it - lemme know...
She came up during Yahweh, and Bono even says it's not the right song
