Ok ladies...nice replies please...you can be honest about your opinion but no flaming ok?

It's been FREEZINGLY cold here on the east coast the last few weeks...he may have had layers on...that looks like a pretty heavy coat...it could also be the camera angle...really close like that and shooting from below...

***Edited to add...keep in mind he probably has on that wool overcoat...a suit...possibly a scarf(there are some weird bulges at his neck and chest that suggest a scarf underneath) so all of these factors could be contributing...

Nice of him to sign autographs at a formal dinner. Love him.

Thanks for the pic, I was hoping one would turn up. Isn't Ruth Barohn Sad Eyed Lady? Naya, good to see you around, I was wondering if you were still with us!

Well apparently there's a really interesting story behind the picture:

From Youtwo.net
November 9, 2002
True to his word, Bono called YouTwo.net reporter Ruth Barohn and answered the questions she had given him on Thursday night outside the Waldorf Astoria Hotel
(see story at http://www.youtwo.net/news_archives.adp?newsid=22217).

---
THE QUESTIONS

1. Do you know of any ancestral Hewsons who immigrated to America?

2. In an introduction you wrote to a Q Magazine special on Bob Dylan, you mentioned how
it was being looked into that part of your heritage might be Jewish. Do you know now?

3. How do you look at all these honors you are receiving now for your work to aid Africa?
Do you just look at it as a responsibility you have?

4. Can you share more about the ďPeter and the WolfĒ project you are working on that
involves your daughters? Is this project benefiting any specific charity organization?

---
THE PHONE MESSAGE

(clears throat) Hey, itís Bono. I am sorry to call so late. Your questions...about the
ancestral Hewsons immigrating to America -- I donít [know], actually. I think I might
have met one or two. I think there might be a couple in New Jersey. I met them once
but donít keep in contact.

And the Jewish thing, thatís on my motherís side. Rankin sounds like a Jewish name. I
donít know if theyíve figured it out finally, but I always thought that the Irish and the
Jewish community had something in common -- even though oneís a religion and oneís
a country. ďThe people of the BookĒ they used to call them... And I love them as
writers. Incredible writers! And great songwriters! My favorite songwriters are Leonard
Cohen, Bob Dylan, Neil Diamond. The Diamond. Do not forget the Diamond! You
know, the great books, the Torah, all these things have somehow shaped the way I see
the world.

Whatís the other question? How do you look at these honors you are receiving now?
Oh, well... [jokingly] you only do the ones you canít get out of. But Iím very moved
mostly. I just had one from the Irish Historical Society. It was amazing! And the
Simon Wiesenthal -- I mean, thatís just amazing! I mean, you get those and you just canít turn them down.

...Something about the Peter and the Wolf book? Gavin Friday is doing the music; Iím
doing the book part. Heís doing the record part. Iím doing it, and Jordan and Eve
are going to help me. Thatís right -- itís for the Hospice Foundation which looks
after people and prepares them for their final journey. People who are very sick,
like my dad. My dad didnít need the hospice, but he might have. He didnít need them.
He was still in the hospital when he passed away.

At any rate, sorry about this long rambling message. Hope this helps you, and sorry
I couldnít stop the other day. Bye.

What a cool story that Bono called Ruth to leave a message and respond to her questions! God I love that man!
And I like the pic too!

That's an interesting pic because of the angle and also because of the light refraction. I'm not so sure the coloring is any different, I think it's the light. At any rate, a great pic!!!!!

That's what I was thinking too. It's the light. It's like in some concert pics his (or lots of other stars' hair) can sometimes look blue, pink, purple, etc. It's the light!
