Yes, I was just wondering because it sounded so un-Bono.

I think when he not in America it stands out more beacause itr was recorded in Southern France.

Bono:"He is just a bloody deve, I said I'll work for him, and he is just off!" Ha! We love you, Bono! Don't change that beautiful accent!

I think he's actually mimicking someone in the crew...I'll have to go back and watch it again but there is someone else with a very heavy British accent you can hear in the background.

Interessant. Frankly, I hope so, because I really don't like that accent. I like the usual one he has...the lighter one.

He's just joking around. He's a gifted mimic, and can nail a lot of accents really well.

Yeah? First, how do you know? Of course, I agree, because I've heard that, and see that, but I was just wondering where you were getting YOUR info. Anyway, yeah...and that's one of the ways we "click". He makes me laugh. It is an interesting documentary.

Sigh. Nice non-confrontational tone there, really. Well done.

That's just the way I talk. My father-in-law says, "You are very forceful. You don't waste words." He wasn't saying that negatively. He noticed it. It must be true. I was just asking how you knew, if you've somehow how personal experience with him, or something. That's all.

I love Bono. If he is mimicking, that's just the cutest thing!

I don't think so. Anton is Dutch, and has a very different kind of accent. This is a very broad English accent, as in "baff" for "bath".

I think I read once that he was mimicking Robin Leach...host of "Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous".

Yes...I wondered about that "heavy Irish accent." I wondered if that was affected or genuine? Does anyone know? Does Bono switch it off and on like a light switch, or was he just goofing?

If you watch the doc again you can hear him talk about Anton in the train (pics posted by u2kitten) and Anton replies something about bono doing Mick Jagger. He's having a heavy brittish accent alright,not irish. Why he does Jagger, I don't know. Maybe Anton recently worked with Mick or maybe Bono has had someting to do with him at that time.
I find it very funny and so do the other people on the train, even his daughter although she doesn't seem surprised
I think,hanging out with Bono you could expect pretty much anything

Mick Jagger and his daugther Lizzy did some backing vocals for Beautiful Day(?), but they didn't make the final mix - they're both thanked in the album notes on ATYCLB...
