When Larry was younger, his smile was so adorable...you just had to smile with him. He's been shown smiling through the shows this last tour...you just have to look real close. Ya know, he rides a Harley...that means he's not supposed to smile...tough guy. ha

The Larry Mullens Jnr should sign for his fans - he's fans have made him the man he's is

For a person so sensitive about arrogance... I think you should re-read the last part of your post.

Being the person you are depends on so many things besides fame & money... Anyway.

I love autographs. I don't have a lot but I have spent quite some time and effort trying to acquire them one way or another. I reckon that autograph collecting is a very strange habit when it goes to the extreme. For my part, I have no problem understanding why some people sign, and some others don't. And I've had my share of rejection, believe me. It's just part of the game. If you're ok with the rules, go play. If you're not ok with the rules, don't blame it on others.

Rule number 1 being : chances that you'll get nothing are way more than chances you'll get anything. Be prepared to leave empty handed.

By the way, I have autographs of every U2 member... except Larry. Too bad for me. I love him anyway.

I met Larry in 2014 and he happily signed my SOI CD. He was very approachable and was cracking jokes.

Larry is entitled to days where he's just not feeling it!

Yeah....well said. I saw him at the hotel in Amsterdam and he waved, but got in his car fast. That's okay with me.

There are so many factors : where you are, the time of the day/night, what he's been up to just before, your own attitude... Congrats anyway.

That's true. In my case it was after their appearance on the Graham Norton show in London. Pretty sure I smelt some whiskey!

Yeah, well... I've had an experience with Harrison Ford where he had a bit too much to drink. He didn't sign at the hotel where we were standing. He signed outside the restaurant where people stalked him and... Let's just say I'm glad he didn't sign afterwards.

I would be happy to just shake Larry's hand.

Preach!

I didn't get Larry's signature but I was lucky enough to gently tap him on the shoulder at after show party, telling him he did a very good job.
He stopped, looked at me and said thank you.
It's not much but probably better than any autograph...

Got Larry and Adam's autograph (and photo's) outside their hotel in Sydney on Vertigo tour - as they were leaving to go to 2nd stadium show.

Another verse:

Appease us
I hope he sees us
I know he won't displease us
But maybe his hands aren't free

Your singer
Thinks he can save the world in seven
And we drove here from Devon
Came for you, so come here to me

Sign this, sign this Larry
etc.

Larry says :

If there's a crowd here, in all of this touring,
can I just let the others sign ?

I'll tell you, tell you a story
the one about anonimity
and the way it all oughta be.

When U2 played their elevation club show in London I saw Larry signing autographs when they showed up for the sound check in the afternoon. Adam and Bono were there too. I got the impression there was some friction between Bono and Larry. Edge was nowhere to be seen.
