He's looking surprisingly good (except for that left eye)

I wonder if he's got it closed because the sun is to his left or something like that, or if he still can't open his eye...

But yeah, looking good otherwise!

Did we ever confirm he was in LA a few weeks ago?

I just yelled YAAAYYYY!

I'm not at all emotional about this.  :D Aw, so nice to see him out and about.

That's the thinnest that I've seen him in a picture in years. Wow.

There might be hope.

I hope 'fighting fit' describes his gut.  No offense but when I saw U2 live at 360, it looked from certain angles as if Bono was smuggling a pumpkin if you know what I mean.  I think this rehab will leave him more considerate of the condition of his body.  For a second there I thought that guy on the left was Edge with a frayed hairpiece, LMAO!  Seriously, hard to tell how much thinner Bono looks from his shoulders, but he looks a lot better than I thought.  It just looks as if the sun was in his eyes.

So this has been on the U2 Facebook Fan Pages for a few hours now and the comments were intriguing...

Some said he looked awful being so thin and that painkillers make one lose weight.

Some said his eye was damaged and that's why it's closed. (We saw him Christmas Eve to dinner w/ Larry and the family and his eye looked fine.)

Some say he looks old and thin. Well, when a person his age loses weight, and doesn't have a lot of weight to lose, it comes off in the face and that's what you get. It doesn't necessarily look bad, just different.

Then there's a fan who has inside knowledge and says he's not fine-

Me: He's looking into the sun. He has glaucoma. He's mugging as usual. He's not dressed up for public consumption. He's out and about like a local because he is. Sigh... He's fine people, FINE!!

She: Well....actually last reports are he is not....

Me: What last reports?

She: Inside info....from Dublin.

Me: Care to elaborate, please

She: Been with this band for over 33 years, know a lot of people, including staff and close friends....they still very much hold on to the insurance papers....so I sincerely hope he is fine and will be going from strength to strength!

Me: For what he's been through and the fact that he's out and about and even obliging to take a fan pic, that's more than fine for me. As for the insurance papers, they'd be fools not to, of course. I will agree with you and hope that he is indeed going from strength to strength as you put it.

So....

I will reiterate: SO happy to see him! Any weight, any hairstyle, shaven, unshaven, eye closed or open. That mug. :)

Haha! I can be too judgemental at times, and too sarcastic at others, and believe me I'm told that a lot.  I'm just happy to see him looking much better.

That "she" sounds like Fisher. (just a joke!)
