Aren't these guys supposed tob be ROCK STARS?
« on: October 29, 2008, 04:49:17 PM »
Shouldn't they be spending their time with naked supermodels, poolside, in cocaine-Hollywood? 

Bono travels to meet with world leaders to persuade them to forgive third world country's' debts.

Bono travels to AFRICA!!!!! It is hot and without the staple amenities of 5 star travel accommodations.

Bono is living in God's Kingdom!

God Bless him and all of his causes.

Peace.

Not QUITE naked and not quite supermodels and not quite poolside and there's no indication of cocaine but bikini-clad 19-year olds in St. Tropez is pretty "rock star" if you ask me

One time I met him and handed him my cell phone and asked him to say 'hello' to my wife, Eileen.

He then sang Dexey Midnight Riders, 'come on Eileen' to her.......

My knees buckled!

Very Cool.

That man is awesome.

First of all, the band members own properties in New York ,South of France, Malibu, etc, so yes they are very much millionaire rock stars.

Traveling to Africa and living in Africa are 2 different things. Africa is hot, so is Arizona.

My daughter traveled to Africa with a well-known preacher's group visiting the President of a poor African country (Africa is not a country in itself, that was for Sarah Palin devotees). she stayed in 4 or 5 star hotels the whole time, with air conditioning, internet access, pools, upscale restaurants, etc etc. Now, if that's where SHE stayed with a church group, where do you suppose Bono stays ????

Just keep the title of this thread in mind next time Bono (and co.) decide to splash out on a boat/holiday in expensive resort/insert something-only-a-rich-rock-star-would-do. I recollect there were, on the old forum, people getting upset that Rockstar Bono (as it worked out it was rock star The Edge) bought a top of the range boat while he apparently should have been thinking of his charity work.

They are Rock stars, which I love about them! Non trained musicians (initially) that made themselves hge because of their music.

Incidentially, I was down at their studios (HQ) on Saturday and there was an eery silence there. There wasn't the usual hum of staff coming in and out. Garage area all locked up. No U2 practicing. No fans hanging round (usually a sure sign someone's up to something inside). Just generally wet, windy and silent. Dunno if that's any indication of them finished everything musicwise.

i have to be honest, i've been anxiously awaiting an "official" response to the cheating allegations from the bono camp. how long is he going to let this go? i don't know that anyone is "supposed" to be a rock star, but U2's antics have been very tame by rock star standards. ditto this latest ripple. unless he really is diddling teenagers -gasp-   bono, can you hear me? ...

I have to say people expect too much of these 'Rock Stars'.Always looking to dig up the dirt or find fault in something good that they have acheived.I have to admire Bono and the guys for helping the less fortunate in the world.So what if Bono was pictured with some teen babes.Would you prefer if he was pictured with a needle in his arm ???
