A quick Bono story...

Some ppl probably already know this, but I didnt until last nite.

Apparently, when Bono arrived in Italy to perform with Pavarotti in a couple of yrs bk, he realised he'd forgotten his fave. Trilby Hat. So he contacted home, and arranged for a Taxi to collect his hat, take it to Gatwick Airport, and put it on the next plane out to Italy! This set him bk £1000 apparently.

A little piece of useless info here maybe, but it made me laugh! It was on a music quiz show in the UK last nite. The guests had to decide if it was Bono who did it, or Justin Timberlake!

The presenter of the show joked that "With that £1000, Bono could've provided Trilbys to hundreds of African Families"

I forgot 1 thing - they were also watching 'The Sweetest Thing' video, and one of the guests, said that the 'I'm Sorry' banner that features heavily throughout, was Bertie Ahern, apologising to the world, for giving them Westlife AND U2?!

Hasn't this story been debunked in here like a dozen times? Especially since he didn't even wear a trilby hat at that performance.

Well if you thought it would arise, maybe you should have checked your facts.

What u mean, post a thread asking if anyone had already heard the story about........

And then i'd have the same responses that i've already got? Not sure what the point would've been in that.

It's the difference between posting something as fact when it's not, and finding out if something is fact.

I hadn't heard this story before, either. Whether it's true or not, it's funny to think that he might have actually done this!

Yeah, that's what I thought when seeing this show last nite! I felt sure that it was gonna be Justin Trousersnake, but apparently not!

Who knows, I wish Bono was here right now for me to confirm!

Thanks for that Aardvark!

Luckily for me, I don't have to obtain a certificate of authenticity for every story I read, to ensure a good nights sleep...I still enjoyed it all the same!
