Are people forgetting the time he painted his face white, wore lipstick, eyeliner, along with gold platform shoes and spoke in a posh english voice??

It was cool then and it's cool now.

Context folks, context.

Have you SEEN the pictures in Q ?

Each to their own I guess, personally I think he looks ridiculous, but then I don't place too much emphasis on how the musicians I like look. If  I did I'd never listen to Rush, ugliest rock band on the planet !

The eyeliner is not my favorite look, but . . . hasn't he said his main purpose is to get people talking?  This will certainly accomplish that . . .

True that! :)

Seriously folks, I think he looks great in the eyeliner.  It accentuates one of his best features, IMO.  If it helps him get into character and get into the new songs, then by all means he should wear it.  I think the performance is going to be fantastic, and that's what people will be talking about afterwards.

As long as people don't insult him he can do what ever he wants.

What's the appeal though? How does he automatically conjure up such a ridiculous idea? Maybe next year he'll chop off his right arm because it looks cool too, well, eye-liner isn't quite the equivalent of that, but you get the idea.  ;)

Insulting
... there'll be a a lot of that!  ;) I'm going to cringe during this performance. I know I shouldn't care what people think, but I hold this band dear to my heart, and the idea of eyeliner is embarrassing.

Agreed. It will never not be cool  :) I'm completely content with an eyeliner-clad Bono at the Grammys! I love the eyeliner.

I'm sorry, but from my view, he just looks a lot older in eyeliner. It's seems he's going punk at 48  ;)

Well, if he's going to wear eyeliner, he should at least wear blue to emphasize his eyes  :D

Maybe put in some sparkles too for the spotlights to bring out.  :D ;)

By the way, Rush's music makes up for it.  ;)

I have to say, his eyeliner didn't look THAT bad at the Grammys. He looked terrible in the photo shoot, though.

What, in the Q magazine shoot? That page-size photo of Bono was seriously awesome.
