It's Bono-Stipe...

Has Bono gone all Michael Stipe on us with the eyeliner? :)

Never thought I'd hear myself say this, but I actually don't mind it. It looks quite cool, actually, rough and smudged on, not properly applied like eyeliner usually is.

Also, the bowler hat with the dark glasses looks awesome!

It does look rather cool... I wouldn't have guessed it (seriously, a 48-year-old Irishman in eyeliner?), but it suits him somehow!  ;D

I don't think it was necessary, but I'm glad they're reinventing themselves.  ;D

Oh, btw it's called "guyliner", not "eyeliner"  ;) or perhaps in this case "bonoliner".

Maybe they'll start marketing it... "U2Eyeline"!  ;)

Maybe he'll paint his entire head like Stipe was doing for a while.

New look, not bad, with the short hair and the guyliner. Creative and artistic.

Like the look, and Bono does suit the guyliner.  I've always liked singers wearing it - Marc Bolan, Adam Ant, Michael Stipe and now Bono!

I'm not crazy about it, but he looks great in a suit jacket for a change.  Maybe the eyeliner is him reinventing himself again, ala macphisto.  I'm going to take it as an indication of an edgier style for the band and hence, the music, and not just a predilection for his wife's makeup.

Yeah I think it's all part of a re-invention which is exactly what U2 need for their next album

I'm not too shocked Bono's doing this. If it was any other band member I would be.

The funny thing is I've kind of always been drawn to rockers who sport the guyliner, but I don't really know if I like it on Bono.  Must just be because I'm not used to it.  If he had been wearing it from the beginning it probably would have made me love him even more!  Not sure yet how I feel about it....change is good, right?  ???
