I'm the only person I know who finds the curiously-named Bono wholly unconvincing.
I don't even know whence he took that curious nomen.
Is it some abbreviation? Of a modest nickname like Paddy "Cui Bono" O'Reilly (or whatever his proper name is)?
I've just watched him on 'Sixty Minutes", still with those pretentious eye-coverings that can hardly serve duty against light of any brightness, spouting his standard gloss, albeit with that Robin Williams-style wiggling of his fine chin and regulation sine qua non brown furrow and serioso expression.
I've no doubt he's emoting good stuff but I find the whole self-conscious visual more distracting than the words.
I'm told I have somewhere in my collection a "Joshua" album, and that someone called "Edge" is listed on guitar.
I don't now want to trace it in case it turns out to be true.
