It only took 23 years, but Bono finally has his October lyrics back. During a speech tonight in Portland, Bono told a Rose Garden crowd that earlier in the day two girls, "Cindy" and "Danielle" returned the bag that had been stolen or lost during the band's first visit to Portland in March, 1981. The bag is said to have contained a notebook with Bono's early lyrics for the October album, although Neil McCormick recently told @U2 that Bono has confessed "there was probably nothing in the notebook." Well, now Bono can see for himself how much or how little had been written down when the notebook went missing.
