U2 auction – Do you take cash for that?


{ Lot #116 U2 Stylist’s Measurement Book }

Former U2 stylist Lola Cashman is putting some U2 items up for auction on the music collectibles and memorabilia site gottahaverockandroll.com. U2 sued Cashman in 2006, claiming she acquired some items – including the infamous Stetson hat – without the band’s permission.

The auction includes Bono’s rosary beads, a bible signed by Larry Mullen (‘with real love’) as well as the drummer’s signed, worn sneakers. (Eeew.) Most fun though is the inclusion of the stylist’s ‘measurement’ book, which is sure to raise a smile as well as a few bucks ($800). You can flip through some of the pages on the auction site.

Now what we’d like to know is… who would pay 1,200 dollars for a signed, crumpled copy of Rolling Stone magazine?

  • Can see why Bono would need that stetson to appear taller – who knew he’s only 5’7”! These artifacts are a fascinating insight into an iconic band. U2 memorabilia very rarely comes up at auction and it’s obvious from the number of views this article has already attracted there’s going to be great interest.

    Dear Diary, Just as people are debating U2’s relevancy in today’s music scene, I have been struggling with a similar issue as a fan. I’ve been around this block as a fan for a quarter-century now. I’ve gone through the typical motions of fandom: buying everything I could with any disposable income I had; […]

    [Ed. note: This is the 84th in a series of personal essays by the @U2 staff about songs and/or albums that have had great meaning or impact in our lives.] Grace, she's got the walk I’ve always been ungraceful. Ballet lessons? After clomping around a dance floor at age 5, I abandoned attempts to be a swan-abee and took up piano instead. High heels?
