What's up with Larry?

I have a question I've been meaning to ask. I've met Bono 3x, first time was during Elevation he was next to the Edge in their escalade, another time during the NY Times interview and this past weekend I got him again as well as Adam; but my question is how come in all these times I've never, ever caught a glimpse of Larry? Come to think of it I haven't read many fan encounters with him I could be wrong but does he not enjoy meeting the fans?

Bono is easy He wants it.....you know the interaction with us fans Larry on the other hand is harder to crack. He can just stroll by without even seeming to notice you're there. Haven't been ignored by him yet but hoping *fingers crossed* to get a chance this tour Though the lucky few have gotten pictures and/or autographs from the blonde adonis.

I meant you are right. Larry doesnt play the fan /fame game. Theres lots of posts around here of Larry ignoring fans, etc. His perogative.

i met larry once. it was brief and he didnt really have much to say - you could tell he didnt want to be bothered too much.
bono on the other hand yacked away for about 10 minutes without letting me get in edgeways
not that i'm compaining

i did hear stories of people seeing larry in the gym in cape town when they were there for popmart and apparently he got pissed off with people coming up and talking to him every 3 seconds - understandable really, the guy is trying to work those pretty arms of his and keeps on getting interrrupted.

He's just not a very sociable person and he's in a famous band. So I'm sure that it must be annoying for him, I'm sure he cares about the fans and he has said a million times that he loves his "job" but it must be annoying for him more than it is to the others, I doubt he would disrespect a fan though.

If you read seajewel's listening party thread, she has some closeups of Larry. It's my opinion that Larry will sometimes meet with fans if it's a band related outing, but shuns all fans who seek out the band on their own personal time (like the studio) I think he thinks that if it's 'job related' he will go along with it, but believes fans should not bother the band when they are not on a tour or a promotion for their songs. Since 'just my 2 cents' has been banned, I'll say this is "IMHO" but I think it makes sense and I'm right.

But as someone said, Bono loves it all the time

I guess it's seems worse, as Bono is such a sociable frontman. There is a bug (bug?! big) contrast between the two.
Sorry to all you Larry girls looks like you get the raw end of the deal

Interesting, I had a feeling. Too bad I would've loved to be graced by his prescence!

Because Larry is, to put it simply, an arse.

Don't waste your time on him.

I read somewhere recentlym that he's happy to meet fans when he's doing a 'band thing', but he refuses to sign autographs for anyone that comes to his house or something....It was an interview in the UK recently...

It's the fans that are making these blokes rich. I don't understand why Larry prefers to ignore them. I never liked that about him. He's still pretty though.

In his defense - he was very nice to me and did not seem to mind the autograph - it was an album promotion event (he is very handsome)

I don't believe any of them "owe" us anything. Camping out at their houses seems kind of creepy.

I'm all about Bono anyway. He is super nice and funny- Too bad about Larry though he is 'pretty' I find it strange since he's the one who 'gave everyone the job' but I guess he's a very private person and I can't say I blame him.

Just because we love their work & have made them rich doesn't mean they owe their entire lives to us.

Although some people find it contradictory, I can easily understand how a very private person (such as Larry appears to be) could end up in an extremely public job. I don't think just because he's famous he wants CONSTANT attention, though. His passion in life - the thing that he REALLY loves doing - has proven to be good enough that others will pay for the privilege of enjoying it. Nothing wrong with taking advantage of that to earn your living - but as I said before, it doesn't mean that he owes those paying folks complete and total access to him 24/7 for the rest of his life.

It does make him stick out, considering how approachable Bono is - but then again, as we've pointed out so many times before, Bono is a creature unto himself! It's no more fair to assume all band members should be just like him than it would be to assume that all women should be just like me! (Whew! - even I shudder at the thought of that!!!)
