Story behind one of U2's funniest picture



From www.u2log.com
Quote:
... a couple of words from star photographer Rankin about what he thinks is one of the best U2 photographs: '... I've got a really funny story about Adam. Cos Adam came later than the rest of them, that day. And I had shot them all individually first, cos I didn't want them to know what I'm about - and I was like, Head down, chin out, you know. [ ... ]

'But Adam hadn't been there. So they all get in the group shot, and I was going Right, Bono, put your feet like that, angle your head more, do this, do that - and Adam's face was like (forms expression of fixed stony rage) - he could not believe that I was ordering these people around! And I was going, Adam, can you push your chin down. Adam. Please, Adam. And he was just ignoring me! It was really hilarious, it made me laugh so much. He was like, Who is this bloke? Who is this person telling me what to do? But, you know, U2 were just the best. He [ Bono ] is the best. He said the nices thing that anyone's ever said to me. He goes, Rankin, you remind me of me.'

I love that pic. Very nice story

Larry looks like, as usual, 'FOAD to all this bs'

Edge just looks goofy

If you are really good friends with The Edge, you can just call him The~ Adam
The right side of my brain is kinda redundant~ Larry
No, I will not do the snake dance for you~Bono

Funny story! (Though to me it almost sounds more like Larry than Adam.)

Don't hate me but I've always thought Adam looked like a very ugly old lady in the Pop era.

*gasp* you what?! Heee heee, wanna know something that's funny about that? I have an Adam shirt featuring a pic of him in a wig with thick glasses and of course a cigarette hanging from his mouth. The following is the ACTUAL conversation I had with an airhead I go to school with:

Airhead: Shannon, is that your grandma or something?

Me:

Airhead: 'Cos it looks like an old woman.

Thank goodness my friends were around to stop me from saying things I wanted to say...

*kicks the airhead where it counts*

This pic is oddly interesting, I love it

I'm gonna put this pic up in my locker, just to see what kind of a reaction I get...
