How to Dismantle Tom Snider

It's still Tuesday...

Bono's gotten some bad press recently having been photographed with bikini-clad teenage girls. My reaction: Bono is doing his job as a rock star. He is making me jealous of his life.

He travels the world playing music. Check
He hangs out with hot girls in bikinis. So far so good...

Now, I don't want to see Bono in some night-vision sex-tape with a teenage girl (or anyone else for that matter). That would be too much. But if young girls want to flirt with him, so be it. I can't blame him for that.

And yes, Bono has become a bit insufferable each year he has gone on and on about how I am not doing enough to stop the logging of baby whales with AIDS, etc. And yes, I could do without any more songs like Beautiful Day, and Yahweh.

But let's go to the way-back machine and have a look at when this guy and his bandmates made our acquaintences...

Why U2? There's four of you, why not U4?

There's also this little treat for your amusement too.

I love early U2. Did you see Larry's hair? Wow.

Jumbo Slice said...

Make that Adam's hair. I always get those two guys mixed up.

one does not dismantle Tom Snider, one only improves or augments him.

bono is insufferable but he gets away with it because he seems like a good dude and isn't doing it all for self-aggrandizement. at least that's how it seems to me.

excellent bush vid as well

actually, you were right to point out Larry Mullen Jr.'s hair. He's had the same jarhead look for ever. This is one of the few times I've seen his hair "long."

Adam Clayton had that weird yellow-fro up to Joshua Tree.

The Bush vid is worth a look if you haven't seen it.

So is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06CvUjLgK5g

Holy shit that goat video is freaky. Sounds like he is yelling, "MOM!!"

The Bush video cracked me up. Not as good as him bobbing and weaving to avoid a shoe-icide attempt, but close.
