Bono butting heads.....*ouch*!!!!!

From The Irish Echo:

New & Noteworthy
By Eileen Murphy

Don't let all that peace and love and spirituality stuff fool you.
U2 singer Bono Hewson is one tough li'l hombre. Bullies and
troublemakers in particular will want to beware of getting too
close to that famous forehead. But wait, we're getting ahead of
the story.

In the latest issue of British GQ magazine, the 41-year-old
singer admits to getting into the occasional alcohol-fueled brawl.

"I wouldn't like to go into the details," he told the magazine.
"But if I am drinking and someone is being an arsehole, then it's

"I mean, it's not cool and it's not something I'm proud of, but
sometimes it just happens," he said. "It's probably little-guy

Bono admits that his fighting has "cost him a few bob along the
way," but said he feels that it's a small price to pay for butting
bullies in their place. And just in case you were wondering, his
favorite move is the forehead slam.

"That's the specialty," he admitted proudly. "I'm famous for it."
Probably because, being vertically challenged, he either leaps
two feet into the air before delivering the blow, or he just head
butts his opponent in the gut rather than in the face. Either way,
we're sure he's quite ferocious.

And just in case you thought that all of Bono's brawls take
place outside the warm cocoon of the band -- Nuh-uhh-uhh.
Apparently, the U2 boys have been known to throw a punch or
two at one another. Hey -- after 20-odd years of togetherness,
even a saint would get on your nerves, right?

"Edge has attempted to take me out on a couple of
occasions," Bono said. "But [Edge, Larry and Adam] are
generally very peaceable, non-violent people." Most of them
have learned to avoid Bono's forehead like they would a
recording session for "Passengers: Part Two."

So the question must be posed: Who in the music industry could take on Bono.

Danzig might give him a run for his money.

But Bono would DEFINATELY kick Henry Rollins' ass (not rogerum )

Anyone want to place some bets....

To use the old hippy saying, it ain't where you're from, it's where you're at. And right now. If you're listening to this CD, you're already watching the sunset in your mind, feeling the heat on your skin and whilling away the hours. Simply chilled. Best way to keep it, really. -Matthew Kershaw - Ibiza Sunset.

Hmm. How about Bono (5'7", and that's probably generous) vs. Tom Scholz (founder of Boston, about 6'5").

popkidu2: the real question is: Who in the music industry could NOT take on Bono? Stephen Gately (Boyzone) maybe.. ´cause he is 2´5, or something hehe...
