Bono "doesn't sign guitars"!
« on: August 26, 2010, 08:39:59 AM »
Check out 04:37 on this clip. Can anyone suggest any reasons why? Incidentally, both Adam and Edge signed said guitar just before.

I hear its cuz ppl try & auction them off on Ebay for exorbitant amounts of money. If he signed it it'd def. be a hot commodity. I heard he will sign them for official charities tho.

He definitely has signed them before but I reckon it would be the eBay thing.

But i did hear him say once that he doesn't sign any musical instrument he can't play.

He was asked to sign an oboe once. A Bono-oboe. Nope.

Asked to sign a zither. Was having nothing of it.

And you should have seen the fuss he created when he was asked to sign a pair of Maracas in Rio...

It was like that for some of the U2 by U2 signings as well. For people the band judged to be scammers, they'd write stuff like "Beautiful ebay"  :D Though I really do wonder how U2 can make such a snap judgment about people  :-\

The bigger aspect of that video to me was Bono getting into a conversation with that fan for a good minute or two.  Very sweet of him :)

I better think of something good to say next summer...

Another thing I noticed about the clip was how sanguine the crowd was. In the U.S. there is prolonged screaming and grabbing!

I've been in a few autograph crowds and the pros stand out like sore thumbs. Real fans are pretty easy to spot-their eyes light up as soon as the person arrives. The pros are all business, shoving to the front.
