Bono's appearance and personality @ 03:59 pm

keskitalvi:
Hi guys!

The thing is, I'm supposed to do an English essay (150-200 words) by Friday. The title is The person I admire so of course I am gonna write about Bono. We have to write a description about someone, and tell about the person's appearance and personality. My head is full of ideas, but thought it would be a good idea to ask fellow U2 fans for some new ideas. About Bono's different styles, hairstyles, personality..? Anything you can think of. 150-200 words is not much, so it's a bit difficult to tell all about him, and so now I'm just trying to find the most important things. I'm a Finn, there's not much U2 sites in Finnish, so I haven't read so much about his hairstyles for example.. I know it sounds kinda stupid to write about Bono's appearance and not the music, but it has to be a description.

So, Bono's appearance/styles/hairstyles/personality? Some tips is what I'm looking for. Thanks in advance if someone bothers to help me on this.

Crossposted to few communities.

If you think about it, alot of his styles over the years have been quite eloquently reflected int he music. Boy and War are kind of angry British and mod-y too. Jump ahead to JT/RH and you have this real folksy rebellious look. AB/Z was all about the ROCKSTAR image. Pop was definitely nu wavey...a little grown up and Euro chic. ATYCLB more mature, older, more grownup--at the heart of him as a person, unfettered. His looks/styles have always been tied up with the music, yet completely apart from it. Does that make sense?

He's an extrovert. The consumate showman, yet a poet with a very, very deep soul. He really is an amalgam of traits. I would definitely use master ofre-invention, humanitarian, poet and showman and political dabbler to describe him.
I'd really like to see the finished product! Good Luck!

Maybe because I think he's so hot one of the things that I find most striking as far as appearance is concerned is that he seldom takes anything off... even a jacket. I've seen him absolutely soaked in sweat at a concert and still wearing a leather jacket.

I actually have a picture of him with his shirt unbuttoned and off his shoulders... it was so striking to me because it is SO unusual!

Edge once described him as "the nicest bunch of guys you'd want to meet.." tells you a bit about his personality (ies) right there...

Naybe it's the English major coming out in me, but I don't see how Bono's appearance really shows why you admire him.

Bono should be admired for being a great singer and songwriter, a devoted father and son, and a selfless humanitarian. I'd focus on his work in Africa and Sarajevo.

But then, that's not what the assignment asked you do to, so if you listen to me you'd just get in trouble.

I don't see how Bono's appearance really shows why you admire him. Me neither. But the task is to write about appearance and personality.

Which Bono?

I would write about how he's developed these different characters he "plays" -- The Fly (based on Gavin Friday), MacPhisto ("The Fly after he's gotten fat and moved to Las Vegas"), the Mirrorball Man ("a kind of snake oil salesman"), The Cuban Dictator, and so on. (Hence Edge's comment about "a nice bunch of guys.") There are very few rock musicians these days who still use costume changes the way he does, and nobody I can think of today who plays different characters on stage.

Of course you have to mention the custum-manufactured tinted eyeglasses he's so famous for. He even gave a pair to the Pope as a gift.
