Title: Why doesnt The Larry Mullens Jnr sign anything
Post by: The Bonzo on June 20, 2016, 11:05:05 AM
Was watching a couple of videos on youtube where U2 meet and greet fans, I noticed Larry always refuses to sign anything whereas other band members are happy to do so.

Why is this?

Its because The Larry Mullens Jnr doesn't like fans to sell the items for a profit?

He signs stuff. He's just selective and prefers to be quick about meeting fans.

The Larry Mullens Jnr should always remember the fans have made him a multi-millionaire.  He should give them the time if they have waited for him to come out.

That seems like a somewhat unrealistic expectation to me. Someone like Larry (or any other individual with a following) has the right to decide how much they want to interact with others, and consequently the fans of that individual have the right to decide whether or not to keep supporting that quality of life.

In other words, Larry can do whatever he wants (sign or not sign things) and you can do whatever you want (keep on buying things the band sells or not).

I've seen Larry occasionally sign when he's meeting fans. I think he just prefers to shake hands and say hi.

Last year in Denver he signed some stuff but mostly said hello to people. Edge didn't sign anything, just shook hands and said hello.

I have read that Larry doesn't like to sign things the other boys have signed because he thinks they are just wanting to sell it. Doesn't want to give anyone all 4 signatures.

how can The Larry Mullens Jnr stereo-type his fans like this? what arrogance.

Not all U2 fans are as greedy as the whole band are.  Lets all remember how the band put their signatures to not 1 iPod but two iPods for a profit.

Each to their own I guess.

I actually shook hands with Edge last summer, and I think it was much nicer than an autograph.

If getting an autograph is that important to you, and you really can't understand why someone does not want to keep doing that, I think you've got other issues.  Or unless you're 12 years old - then I think you get a pass.

This is an interesting point.

When i was a kid (about 13-16) i collected autographs, mainly footballers - getting programmes signed for example and i had a little book for autographs as well.

I then came to the conclusion that these autographs were pretty pointless to me just often barely distinguishable squiggles on paper.

There is however it seems a lucrative enough market out there for signed items and i happened across it myself when through talking to a lad in a pub one day i was offered a pretty large whack for a signed football shirt i had tucked away gathering dust somewhere....

I sold it and then also cashed in the most 'valuable' old programmes i had in a box in the attic too...

I have a friend who is really into the whole signed memorabilia thing and i take the pi*s out of him mercilessly when like he did a few weeks ago rocked up at a pub just because he knew an old England football manager was making an appearance there for some tv documentary, armed with items to get signed....he keeps them though rather than makes a few quid.

I have another friend who makes a good whack out of selling stuff he gets signed - he actually pays kids to get the stuff signed outside melwood (Liverpool FC's training ground) as the players are on their guard about signing stuff for the same old and certain faces as they know they are knocking stuff out to people who collect this stuff. He also goes to meet and greets etc to get stuff signed and knock it out later.

Like most things i suppose it takes all sorts!!

I would personally feel embarrassed asking somebody for their autograph even if i was just selling it on.

Thing is there is a very lucrative market out there for the best items....

Look at this - http://www.icons.com/luis-suarez-signed-and-match-worn-liverpool-2013-14-home-shirt.html?gclid=CMDnp4XHxc0CFbEW0wod_7oLHA

Even just general 'tat' can go for good money signed programmes etc. from run of the mill games are changing hands for daft amounts to the right people!

Anyways The Larry is who is he maybe the Bono should give him a slap and tell to behave properly

Yes! He's under no obligation to sign anything. I feel like any kind of personal encounter- like just saying hello to fans or even just waving or anything- is invaluable. There's no reason to be fixated specifically on the signing part or even to expect interaction- he'll do what he feels comfortable with. Respect the band! Not everything has to be significant.

Not understanding the Larry hate. He seems the most down to Earth. He doesn't care to post on social media because he enjoys privacy. This is probably the same for meets and greets. He's probably not huge on fame and prefers to be quiet. Would the average person recognize him in the street? Nope...

The fact that fans buy CD's and other stuff, doesn't automaticaly implie they should give up their private life and do things for fans

agree with the last 3 posts and this is why I said what I did in my first comments.  The sense of entitlement that surrounds the whole autograph business and those who feel they arer owed something - I just do not get it.  Now I do understand the 10 year old at the ballpark who wants his baseball card signed... that is one thing.  But an adult who pouts because their favorite musician won't autograph something?  Nope.

I don't owe them a cent either...for me it's not a monetary question. I DO owe them a lot of happy hours, a few tears, a constant renewal of faith and a heck of a lot of fun. It may be a sad commentary on my life, but their music has helped me survive. I owe them big time.

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.

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 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...

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.

If getting an autograph is that important to you, and you really can't understand why someone does not want to keep doing that, I think you've got other issues.  Or unless you're 12 years old - then I think you get a pass.

That's just your opinion. I'll give you a pass [aren't I so high and mighty] because you might be 3.

I don't blame any of the band members much less Larry for not wanting to sign something. Christ, grow up. Its a signature.

There's no harm in asking. Unless you're (or you think you are) too cool for school.

Love Jadeja.

I agree with the earlier post about Larry preferring to shake hands and chat. I also wouldn't approach Larry if I saw him out and about, as opposed to being at a show where he is 'working'. That seems to make a difference to him, where it doesn't so much with the other three. I'd never bother any of them if I saw them eating dinner or out with their families or something. But if I see Bono walking down the street alone, I don't think I'd be able to leave him be. You just have to try not to flip out and scare them, lol.

I don't want to make any judgement on the man who started my fave band but I wonder where all this Larry bad mood's/behavious come from. I don't like it and I think it's totally disrespectful to us, his fans.

To my knowing i never heard that Larry had a bad mood interacting with fans. I have seen him smiling and joking a lot too. Sure, he can be moody...... but he is human........
He looks serious, but that does not mean he is angry.

Yeah, he is all that. A great guy. At the hotel in Amsterdam in '15 he rushed into his car, waving at the fans. That was just fine with me
(my heart could not take more....to be honest).

In his defense... being overcrowded all the time... I'd be grumpy too. Probably grumpier.

I've been around celebrities a bit and I really admire the genuinely open and patient blokes that take time to chat and smile, pose for selfies and sign autographs. It looks totally exhausting.

I agree that it would be uncomfortable...to never be able to go out in public without people staring at you and reaching for you and possible bothering you...but, that is part of stardom.
It's a price they have to pay sometimes. I think, mostly, that it would be bothersome, but also quite flattering to the ego.

Absolutely. What I mean is that it's not for everybody. It really depends on your own personality and integrity. It can vary a lot.

I think Bono is a natural. Reaching out to people is one of his tricks. Larry accepts it, I guess, but he would live without it quite well (and I believe he has way more space and privacy than Bono).

This is what I am talking about: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rerps77jY5M (U2 TJT 30th anniversary (Facebook Live))

I only think that a talented gorgeous man like him should be grateful for his life, his fans, and act differently. I don't like the way he usually behaves in interviews, seems to be pi**ed off and not engaged. Shyness/serious behaviour is different from lack of interest/bad mood.

Just because someone likes playing drums in a band you like doesn't mean they have to behave the way you want them to. I've been around "fans" - more likely famehounds - meeting the band (in 2004) and some of them were very rude and treated the band like meat. Not pleasant to see, let alone be the subject of.  And, of course, after teh John Lennon thing, who knows which slightly weird fan you meet that will try to harm you?
