Have Plant and Bono ever met?
I know Plant was a U2 fan in the mid-to-late '80s; wonder if he still is.
Plant was actually one of the first rock stars to become friendly with U2. Dennis Sheehan was part of Led Zeps tour management and after Zep ended he went to work as U2's tour manager. Early in the '80s Sheehan brought the band up to see Robert Plant at his farm in England and they began a friendly relationship. Bono refers to Plant as the "Tall Cool One" and Plant in turn refers to Bono as the "Short Fat One".
Now this is something I would of liked to see. I found this in an article about Sheehan.
"It’s Sheehan’s closeness to U2 both professionally and personally that is most revealing as to his talents and abilities. Berry tells of the time when it was his birthday, and U2 dressed up as members of Led Zeppelin in his honor
. “It was hilarious. They’d do anything for him.”
If Bono was dressed up as Plant, was he in a blonde wig and wearing stilts?
