"Charlie Whisker" @ 11:17 am

hapavox:
I was looking through an old issue of Propaganda #? one night and ran into a familiar name---Charlie Whisker. Ring a bell for anybody here? Actually, the name sounded vaguely familiar until I looked at the liner notes of Zooropa when the band credits him for the original 'baby/babyface' illustration that appears on the actual Achtung Baby cd. It's interesting because Charlie Whisker happens to be a local Dublin Artist who was featured with Bono in some art gallery back in 1986. So, basically they've known this artist for years......

Just an observation.

He also drew the palm tree logo used by Island Records.

Shuddup! I'm a big fan though...he should've stayed with the Jordan team...or hopped on with Toyota....it's important to stick with Japanese loyalty!

Interesting. Sometimes I tend to think that they're very appreciative of people that have changed their lives as people and as musicians by thanking them even though they had nothing to do with the actual recordings of the albums. Although, one person that's been missing as of late in the U2 camp is longtime collaborator, Flood. I hope he's doing something for the new record.
