diamondbruno9 and the greatest frontman in the world

Hey All --
I am so thoroughly Bonofied these days, I had to go and book the weekend of the 18th in Vegas to see them once more. See, I read U2literary.com's Slane story, and then I read Diamond's open letter to Bono, and then I started to write. Was gonna be a post in here, but ... it kept gettin' bigger. The results ended up here instead: http://www.atu2.com/news/article.src?ID=1575
I hope y'all like it.

God bless,
Deb D

Deb-TrueColoursfly-

Thanks so much for that you are indeed a great penner of words..

A few have rang me and emailed me telling me about this/your article..it is wonderful

To this day I get chills about those moments w/Bono..Sometimes whispy but that might be becuz I have too many onions on my cheeseburgers while reminiscing..sometimes I giggle myself to sleep listening to Walk On Bos4 live over and over again..

By Bono lifting me to stage that night a friendship was finally 'consumated' -if you will -after 20 yrs of fan devotion.
By Bono's graceful actions the fans were also 'lifted' and 'rescued'in a musical and spiritual sense--I was only a symbol..

Thank you again so much..

Oh and for the record..Jimmy Sullivan from Boston Globe tracked me down outhere in Scottsdale Az.-3000 mi. away from Boston 1 month later and clarified the 'plant' issue in a follow up article July 9 entitled-"When Love Came to town one Fan jumped for Joy".(Bos Globe)

Maybe we will see you in Vegas..

Godspeed-
-Diamond-

I agree Deb, Diamond is the greatest front man in the world.

Huh? The article wasn't about Diamond? Oh, never mind....

Seriously, it was a well written and though-provoking article. I'm not sure if Bono conciously tries to obtain the goal of being "the best" or if he even considers himself among the best, but I do believe that his sincerity mixed in with a healthy dosage of humor and obvious talent make for one outstanding lead vocalist.

As a side note, I also read with amusement and some annoyance the comments that the people Bono drew up on stage were "plants." Why is it so hard to believe that there are truly passionate U2 fans out there (considering the last album has sold 3 million copies in the U.S. and 10 million worldwide and that every show on this tour has been sold out, this shouldn't be too difficult a concept to grasp) who can dance or play guitar or even jump on stage just to interact with the men who clearly have had a profound effect on their lives. Once again, the wisdom of the media... sigh...

One other small yet incedibly significant aspect ofour friend Bono..then I will shut up...

His SINCEREITY..
Yes extremely sincere man..

Moments after fiercely pulling the guards back w/the feriousness of a lion,next he's standing by me- like an innocent kid at a carnival saying,"pick me up"-"pick me up"..

The man's personality certainly covers the gamut..he's a 'Mr. Everything'

Incredible..

Diamond

Insecurities-OUT THE WINDOW

Moments after our friend was saying-"pick me up"!-"pick me up!" Ala CELEBRATION!
[/QUOTE
Upon stage arrival he says-"Shake hands w/me, big fellow.." I tried a 'diamond-gansta-style' but he quickly change it to a universal-brother handshake while I was thinking -Sheesh this guy's got HUGE HANDS-crowd roars!

Thanks Jess.

The man had the patience of a father with me. He could have booted me off stage for being nervous..and he's done it before, but he was patient with me..he said " I have faith in you" and we got through the song. He is a different breed of man, I never thoght he was extraordinary, until I played with him on stage.
