If any UK people happen to be awake right now, you may be interested in ITV Teletext p142, which currently has a 7-page article about Neil McCormick's relationship with Bono (I think it's excerpts from his new book 'I Was Bono's Doppelganger'). Mum told me about the feature this morning but I completely forgot to look until now - it may have disappeared by tomorrow morning. Sorry about that!
They're also offering a £10 voucher for the star letter about U2 fandom, favourite U2 song, etc. I don't know what kind of voucher it is, but I presume it's only of use to UK residents. You can send your letters to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your name and full address.
this story might bore some of you but i still thought it would be good to post it.
i just came back from a trip to Mexico City. while i was there i saw my dad's family who i haven't seen in about 7 years. and as we were making small talk and what not they asked who my favorite band was and what kind of music i was into. and, of course, i answered U2. and this was my uncles response:
"oh those guys....yeah theyre great. with that Bono guy." *as he put his hands to his eyes and made a shape of glasses* "yeah with those glasses....hahaha. awesome guy. and he's such a generous and giving guy i hear."
i guess it's just good to know that Bono and his famous trademark are known all around the world.
When was your first concert??
Where did it take place??
Which band/bands opened for the boys??
Your age at the time???
Which songs were you dying to hear???
Highlights of the show??(if you can remember them)
I thought it would cool to share the experience of seeing U2 for the first time since the boys are going on tour next year and there is going to be WHOLE LOTTA fans going to see them for the first time.
Rage Against The Machine
Still, Streets, Disco, AIWIY, EBTTRT, MW and WOWY
*When Bono stared at ME for what seem like eternity but was just about 30 seconds, maybe, a girl can dream though right??
*The Boys entrance to the place, they pass right by where I was,
*Davey Jones scaring the crap out of Edge
