THE BALD AND THE BEAUTIFUL

Yes we admit, we’ve made mockery (or should that be moppery) of Bono’s hairline from time to time in the past. From the days of the mullet to the present lack of. It’s all in good fun with no harm intended of course. We do love the man, really….

But we’re not the only ones it seems. We raise our hats to this website dedicated to uncovering the truth about our hero’s lack of locks.

  1. Good start, but they’ve only just scratched the surface. I must say though that the B-man’s most recent procedure has grown out very nicely and I really like the haircut, hopefully the dodgy piece days are behind him now. 😉

  3. Okay first off he is not bald. He is on his way, but not yet. The Edge is what i consider bald. He obviously started thinning before the Popmart era, hence the buzz cut. Then sometime before Elevation he received some hair transplants. Anyone who can’t figure this out is a moron. Do we really need a freakin website to discuss it. Get over it already.

  7. I don’t think this is funny and should not be discussed. It’s his private business and none of ours. He has publically denied doing anything, so I think trying to ‘uncover the truth’ is rude and crude. Please leave this man alone. I think some of the ones who do this are bald geeks themselves and jealous Bono can afford to have nice hair, no matter how he got it. I don’t care what he’s done, as long as he has gorgeous hair on his head I’m happy. Pop Bono was hideous!

  9. His Oprah look was nice. He obviously lost his hair. I’d rather see him bald than that bad piece he wore on Jay Leno. JD, he’s more than on his way. I like the thinner look rather than the silly strand of hair that swooped down from his forehead. Being a thinning guy myself, I can’t help but concentrate on the hair. He’s still the best.

  11. HOLD IT THERE A SEC: I just went to Amazon.com and you can order BEST OF CD triple-pack, with a bonus DVD, containing live performances from the 90s. Is this true? Will there still be a seperate one with videos on?

  13. You don’t want to be flamed? Then don’t put links like this on the site. What did you expect? The site owner knew what to expect, or he/she wouldn’t have put the “disclaimer” on the website. Isn’t half the fun of stuff like this is the discussion? Geez. By the way, Mandy and JD, I agree. Who cares if he’s bald or not? It doesn’t make any difference music-wise.

  15. “Cool. By the way I have Live Aid 85 video. Bono have bald nape there already.”

    Isn’t the nape area located on the back of your neck?? Bono had plenty of hair there in Live Aid.

  17. Edge went bald almost twenty years ago and nobody teased him!

    Frontmen, we always get the brunt of people’s obsessions …

    It’s about the music, not the hair. Who do you think U2 are, a glam rock band?! And how many of you are bald? Mock not lest ye are going bald too.

  19. Geez…all this about Bono going bald and Larry being in the video to appeal to younger fans has depressed me. And U2 are younger than I am…I’m going to bed!

  21. wow!!! all this fuss just because Mr. Bono is going bald. Who cares, let him go bald. It will add to his character! John “from Rathfarnham best friends with a girl who lives near Bono” D

  23. Hey Mandy, it’s a matter of taste ofcourse, but I think Bono looked absolutely shagadelic during POP! Crew-cut looked great, he has a good face for it. Talking about taking ten years off…

  25. I agree with Mandy and totally disagree with Flygirl! The ugly Pop crewcut ADDED 10 years to his face and ruined the looks of it!! Thank GOD he grew it back!! As long as he has hair I don’t want or need to know where it came from! More hair to him! That site sucks!

  27. Aint no fuss at all, bald people rock. I think its great that people can notice Bonos baldness and make it into something special. It’s not like we hate him for it.

  31. I think the reason why there’s more commentary over Bono’s hair loss than there was for Edge is that Edge just got bald with no muss, no fuss and just put a hat on it. I think it was the dreadful hairpieces Bono was wearing last Fall/earlier this year (post-Tribute to Heroes) that got the tongues a-waggin’ on the subject, before that his hair loss wasn’t a big deal one way or another.

  33. I think his hair is real, but hey I thought the rumor was supposed to be a transplant, not hairpiece! His Tribute to Heroes hair was BEAUTIFUL- looked just like the One video to me. I’m not going to fake it and say it doesn’t matter to me, I care about hair and I want hair on Bono’s head!! It looks like Bono does too. He’s taken good care of his hair and he looks hot.

  35. But I also want to say that I don’t know how anybody could call himself a fan and make a nasty site like that about Bono. It’s his hair and his business leave the guy alone. Poor Bono!

  39. I think that was his hair too at Tribute to Heroes…it was between that and the start of the 3rd leg that it looks like his transplants fell out or something and the weird hair started. Looks like all fixed now though, his hair has been looking great lately.

  41. Most of you seem to be missing the point here. It’s not if it’s true or not or if you care or not, it’s that it’s plain and simple a bad thing to do to someone. How would you like it if you had a receding hairline, or were getting fat, or had bad teeth, and somebody made a website that posted pics, discussed, scrutinized and did close analysis of every inch of parts of you, put it all over the web and then called it “all in fun??!!” I believe every human being, and every animal for that matter should be spared such degredation.

  43. Who gives a fuck?! I wish Bono would shave it smooth ala the Seattle Popmart show just to piss everyone off. I would. Bono is one tough motherfucker…as well as The Edge, Larry, and Adam…who happen to all have buzzcuts/short hair. Really, If this is all we can come up with to talk about between albums…im ashamed.

  45. What rolling richard said is what I’m afraid of! I am afraid he’d be so frustrated with this crap he’d do that, but it wouldn’t piss off the ones who make fun of his hair, they’d be happy because that’s what they want! They’re probaby bald too. I bet that’s why they’re doing it, they just want him to give up and go bald like them and stop trying to have pretty hair and then they’d all laugh! It wouldn’t hurt those jerks, it’s what they want! It would only hurt the girls like me who like his hair. I hope he doesn’t let this bother him.

  49. I think everyone missed the point. The web site just says “is Bono bald” that is it. I never made fun of him, I never said he is ugly, I never said he looked bad, I never said he was stupid, I only said “IS BONO BALD”. Anyone who thought negative things obviosly has a problem with bald people. If you were offended by the site then I suggest you take a long hard look at how superficial you are.

  51. Tim I just can’t understand why you would do such a rude thing to Bono. You say some people have a problem with baldness, well you must think it’s a terrible thing to devote a site to investigating it like it’s a crime!! If it were true, it would be even ruder to Bono and it would embarrass him. What are you trying to do here? Hurt him? To me it’s not whether or not he ever was but why would you want to sneak into his privacy like this, it’s wrong. Maybe it does bug you that Bono was able to do something about it, and that he wanted to. Well more power, and hair to him, he looks fanstastic.

  53. I love the site. Come on I thought it is very funny. Alot of people just don’t have a sense of humour. No one has tackled this topic as well as this site has. I looked at the proof on the site and I do believe now that Bono is bald, well almost.
