Bono invented the mullet?

I could swear there is a Bono quote somewhere in which he claims to have (conjointly with Patrick Swayze, I believe) invented the mullet. It's been several years since I read it, and I've looked all over for it and can't find it. Does anyone have any idea where this is from? It's weird enough that I don't think I would have just made it up. :) I'm using it in an essay, though, so I want to make sure the quote actually exists. Thanks for any help!

My U2, first concert in my lifetime ever!

We tooj the five hour drive to Dallas. I was calm. We checked into the hotel. I was calm. We got to the venue early, decided there was no way we were gonna get better tickets, so we bought shirts and stuff. By then I am starting to get a bit excited. By the time we are on teh bus that shuttled us from the restaurant we ate at, I am a spaz!!

We got there, and literally got Vertigo. The stairs we SO steep. We actually ended up trading tickets with a couple of guys, wnd were able to sit up a little higher, but with a wall in front of us. We had a great view being up that high actually. No trouble seeing Bono's face, or any band members.

When they came out on stage, I knew it was real. now I know this may sound silly, but remember this was my first concert ever, and I won't go into it, but I have been through some really bad stuff in the last year. So when they came out, and "City of Blinding Lights started" I started crying. From sheer joy. By the second song I had completely lost any fear of heights, and was standing there screaming and and dancing and singing my heart out.

It was amazing to hear the audience singing with the band...to be in a room full of that much positive energy. Bono's voice was absolutely amazing. I am now a firm believer one can not appreciate his voice until you see him live.

The funniest thing that happened was I saw Bono coming when he came to our side of the stage, and spazzed, I saw Adam and spazzed. Somehow the Edge snuck by me, then I looked down and saw him and starting screaming " OMG it's the EDGE. EDGE EDGE I LOVE YOU"..ROFLMAO!! Yeah I kinda freaked out.

It was the best night of my life. And it put me at total peace about the loss of my friend, and a smile on my friend Erin's face...

The whole thing was the best experience I have ever had. God was in the building, and Bono was his poet.
