He’s an excellent napper

Bono’s on the cover of Time Magazine this week, and Time.com has a web special, with articles and photo essays, featuring some price quotes from his band mates and entourage: After 15 minutes, guitarist the Edge, who adopts a kind, paternalistic role toward his childhood friend and band mate, glances toward the bathroom and says nervously, “Bono’s allergic to red wine.” Sure enough, Bono has passed out on the bathroom floor. U2’s deputy manager, Sheila Roche, is unconcerned and continues sipping her drink. “He’s probably just taking a nap. He’s an excellent napper,” she says. [ thx George ]

Here’s Bono pictured in Time Magazine, doing impressions of Zelig. (U2 France )

  1. It’s funny. Any other person and the press would start calling him a drunk. Since it’s Bono, and he has a known allergy, people just laugh it off. =) I swear, this guy’s like Teflon. Nothing sticks to him. Not bad press. Not bad performances. Not even POP. =p j/k Saint Bono can do no wrong apparently. That’s just fine by me.

  3. Sheila Roche has probably seen more rock star antics in her life than any normal woman could handle. good for her 🙂 boo on Bono for drunkeness and smoking, but you’re right, Rob, the man’s teflon. and I adore him for it!

  5. I don’t think he was drunk. Bono has a _severe_ allergy to some fermented alchohols like red wine. I think he even passed out at somebody else’s rock concert, after only ONE glass of wine. =/ The amount doesn’t really matter. …… As for the smoking, he old enough to do what he wants, but he should remember that it affects his voice, not to mention his lungs. ……. As for antics, U2 haven’t really been classic trash the hotel room party boys. They’re the all night pub type.

  7. I dated an Irish guy with a “wine allergy” who was fond of bathroom napping as well. If only he’d known how to snake dance…

  9. How can people be impressed with Bono when he presents himself as being spiritual but everyone knows he’s a drunk. I wish those who cared about him would help him with his problem with alcohol. I’m not trying to cause trouble. I’m hoping people will pray for him and that those around him would confront Bono in love about his alcoholism.
