Hello Hello!!


June 16th, 2005

Question again @ 01:40 pm

surfgirl83:
I'm currently feelin: accomplished

Does anyone know if the guys call themselves Bono and Edge or do they actually go by Paul and Dave (David) when they are together?

I've seen clips where Larry said "Do Edge and Adam know about this?" and I've heard Bono say The Edge when he's talking to Edge, but I'm just wondering.

And when Bono was introducing the band during the Elevation tour, he would often say, "...even his mother calls him The Edge"

They call themselves Bono and Edge. Their wives, parents, etc, also refer to them by B & E,

Another question about their names:
I can understand where "The Edge" came from, but where did "Bono" come from?

Hearing aid store called "Bono Vox" near where they all grew up. It's also Latin for "good voice," lol.

How very very strange. "I want to be called the hearing aid store's name!" Hehehe

Thanks so much for all of that! :)

I know I'm not the only one who melts at the though that Bono & Ali have been together since before he was 16 years old... :)

Oh God no! I think it's amazing that their together, that are like the perfect couple!! I'm still trying to figure out if the girls look more like Bono or Ali. I think Ali though, but I'm not really sure.

The book "U2- The Early Years" says Bono was also known by another very looong name (hence my lack of ability to recall it) that ended in Shebangbangbangbangbang. Does anyone else know anything of this?

I believe it's also Italian slang for "sexy."

I don't remember where I read this but when a reporter once asked them if they were "Bono" and "The Edge" in private as well as in public, Bono replied, "We were Bono and The Edge in private long before we were Bono and the Edge in public."

At the 3rd Boston show, Bono brough two kids on stage during SYCMIOYO and asked them their names. After they introduced themselves, he said, "My name's Paul, but people call me Bono."

I somehow imagine his father refused to call him Bono!

I don't remember the exact quote, but in Bill Flanagan's U2 At the End of the World, he and Bono are at a grocery story in Dublin, and Bono uses his credit card to pay. The card says "Paul Hewson" on it. When Flanagan enquires about the whole thing, Bono says that Paul infers a level of intimacy he is only comfortable with with very few people in his life. Then he smiles wryly at the author and says, "Paul is dead."
