"Look Behind the Drumkit" @ 09:35 am

hapavox:
The drummer who played for Bono and The Edge during their performance of "One" from the 46664 gig looked like someone that came out of the pages of Hit Parader magazine. He looked like he drummed for Megadeth at one point...long hair and all. It was very surreal watching him drum and bang his head every now and then.

The grumpy drummer boy must have been banging his head too back home in Dogtown. Adam should've tagged along for the gig and played too.

The grumpy drummer boy...

Hee hee. Poor Larry. Does he even realize what some of us think of him. : D (Of course, I still adore the guy, but still... )

Lynnie! If you've ever run into him and asked for an autograph...he's mighty grumpy:( I found that out the hard way.:

He's the only one I didn't run into in Boston. Aims and Heather did, but I guess I was somewhere else at the time.

I guess he had a rough night at one of the Elevation nights here in Chicago and just didn't want to have with fans outside of the pub they were all supposed to drink at afterwards. He's a big rockstar and I'm sure he reminds himself of that everyday.:P

Ha ha! I can see it perfectly...

He wakes up in the morning and immediately goes to the mirror to pretty himself up and all the time looking at himself from one angle to another and saying to himself "You're a big rockstar, baby, and you *know* it!"

Yep, I can see it. :D

I should call him "Botox-Drummer-Boy!" from now on. Although I don't suspect he takes any botox. He just hasn't changed his haircut in a few decades.

"The Headbangers Have Left The Ball Tour 2004"

That's what U2 should call their next tour.

I actually thought the drummer from Queen was also going to drum but it was the MAN behind the kit slammin' the skins! Larry must wish he had longer hair right now.

I do remember that old Billboard Music Awards 1992 via satellite feed when Phil was interviewing them in a pub in Dublin and Adam took the shots at Collins by saying that all their parents are fans of Phil's music. Funny shiet!

that was hilarious, no? they all seemed rather drunk, too. (except for i-have-dignity larry, who skipped out. hee.)

[random fact that i cannot resist adding: that's the dockers pub, also seen in the famous "but i think that's kinda bullshit" adam moment in R&H.]
