more mullet appreciation!! @ 11:01 pm

I'm currently feelin: amused amused
I'm currently hearin: U2 - Sweetest Thing

I know its not Mullet Monday (all you gals from u2photos will get the little joke here) but this gave me a good laugh, from atu2 ;-):

From: Carolyn

When will U2 be eligible for induction into the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame? When they are eventually inducted (for the good of music-kind), who in the world would present their plaque, certificate, trophy, complimentary gift basket, gift certificates to pottery barn or whatever award paraphernalia is applicable, to them?


Dear Carolyn:

Just between you and me, I've been approached by Paul McG to begin getting some notes together for my triumphant induction speech. If you heard about Eddie Vedder's wine-fueled induction of the Ramones last month, you realize that AG won't be the worst they've ever had at the ceremony. As Bono has become the defacto poet-induction-speech-laureate of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, it will be no easy task to write and deliver a speech even someone as wordy as Bono will appreciate. I'll have a Powerpoint presentation, some old bootlegs, pictures of the mullet years, ticket stubs and I'll be brandishing some of the less-than-favorable reviews that they received early in their career.

It was a hard decision for Paul make in choosing the inductor. Other names bandied about included Mr. Springsteen, Mr. Sting, Mr. Gabriel and P. Diddy (for the kids). I am honored to have been chosen and I hope I can make the band proud. They'll be eligible in 2005.

Wow, it looks like we're all split on the mullet ;-)! I honestly didn't think I'd get that many replies for this post. But I embrance both the mullet and JT-era Bono with the nice brown hair :-).....

Just adding my name on the Mullet-free petition.

We threw the 80's fashion out the window long ago, so there's no reason people should still be sporting 80's hair. Yes, even Bono.
