U2 vs Stylist

U2 are a bit upset with their former stylist, Lola Cashman, for trying to auction some of the items that they gave her as gifts during their time together. The Daily Record reports the financially troubled stylist attempted to sell items including a hat, bible, shoes, and clothing through an auction at Christie’s. When the band learned of the sale, they responded by having their attorneys send Cashman a letter of warning and forcing Christie’s to remove the items from its sales list.

The band appear to be unhappy with Cashman because she is writing an unauthorized memoir about her experiences with them titled “U2, Me Too.”

  1. In 1998, Lola Cashman was interviewed by The Scotsman and talked about meeting U2 for the first time: “They knew I was a stylist and they wanted me to recreate their image for the Joshua Tree tour. I told Bono I couldn’t sew, in case he thought I was going to knock up some costumes and that was when I think he really wanted me — he thought it was such a mad thing to say. So I did Joshua Tree and the Rattle and Hum tour with them, which took up two years of my life…I talked to them about what image they wanted to project, what they wanted to say about themselves. With Bono it was easy, and he is a very powerful personality, but there has to be a common denominator amongst the band to create that balance. One of them told me that he wanted to be sexy. I couldn’t believe it – he was that already but just didn’t see it. I really turned the band around at that point, I think. I dressed them in designer clothes mixed it with stuff from junk shops, had Stephen Linard make Bono’s trousers, and John Moore made their shoes. But all the time it was ‘less is more’.”

  3. Interesting situation. I’d actually have to guess they are more pissed about the book than the fact she is selling their old shoes — and this is the only way they have at getting at her now. I love this band more than words can say, but why do they have to be such control freaks?

  5. Also, I’m trying to place this woman. I was already majorly into the band in ’87 and the only woman I remember doing their tour clothes was called Madge. I wonder if a.) Lola arranged the clothes but didn’t tour with them , or, b.) Madge was Lola’s nickname? Anyone out there know?

  7. Loyalty is a big thing in the boys’ circles, I believe. I guess they think that loyalty should be for life and should extend even after employment or association ends. Weren’t they also pissed when Carter Alan first started writing his book on them?

  9. I’m someone who has been given the ‘inner circle’ speech.. within the u2 ‘camp’. I felt like I was being inducted into the Irish mob… and even after my main time of involvement.. I still got calls, emails, etc… demanding of me like god had called upon me personally. Fame is a joke, and U2 have become what they once mocked. It’s a show, that’s all.

  11. Cindy, it depends on if you think they are who they present themselves to be, or if you think they are actually just putting on a show. There is a half-way point though, which I think is more the truth of reality. They are a billion dollar business, Irelan’s LARGEST export, and largest source of tax revenue, they have a lot to protect.

  12. i think their need for control is absurd. they are famous, they should get over it. people will always talk, whether they like it or not. bullying someone into NOT selling gifts they gave them is pathetic.

    but i can understand the need for loyalty, because every company demands “loyalty” from their employees.

  17. Ian…I’ve read about Madonna’s ex-bf selling her used undies and naughty letters. And that twit who was lovers with Lady Di wants to sell their love letters. Now THAT’s tacky.

  23. The orignal article is clear about the memoirs being unauthorized. At any rate, it seems odd that lawyers would be involved on how someone is using GIFTS given to her; I wouldn’t think the band would have any legal basis to have lawyers issue a “letter of warning.”

  27. Rob, I really could careless if you like me, I simply was posting my experience which was related to the conversation. If I wanted to brag, I would. Maybe you just don’t like hearing anything bad about U2? I mean, they can’t do anything wrong. They walk on water. yep.

  31. Though I think this lady has the right to sell them off and U2 are being childish about the whole incident, I still found the article to be quite amusing. This so-called ‘hard up’ lady has just returned from a ‘well earned holiday in Australia’. Her business can’t be that bad!

  33. Master Yoda thats just lame man. Rob hit it dead on. Bono himself has even said its all just a show and that hes not the same person on stage as he is in real life. Its not a secret that the music industry is all about image, a lot of people like image presented to them and for some people the music is not enough.

  35. Lawyers do not represent the best and brightest of anyone. I know Bono personally and he’s not what he is on stage. He’s better, more irreverent and more down to earth. But, at the end of the day, his image is his livelihood. And the people who’s salary he pays are there to protect him, however zealous and un-Bono they might be.
    It’s about Big Picture. He’s hardly a petty man.

  37. If I were famous, I’d guard my personal life like crazy too. It’s insane that rock stars (or football players or actors or whatever) are so famous, and while they do know the risk of fame when they get into it, that shouldn’t preclude them from making a living doing what they love. They make huge sacrifices to continue making music that challenges themselves and their fans, when they could have walked away 15 years ago, musically and financially successful. The famous have a right to their own image. I don’t blame U2 one bit for being miffed.

  39. Fame is an illusion. I think the greatest thing a stylist could do to people on the BRINK of fame is make them look as UNLIKE their real selves as possible. Being a woman, I am appalled at the fact that U2 would pick on a woman, who could never capitolize on U2’s success like the four guys have already, for selling out. If U2 are looking for some kind of moral high ground then they have failed to see just where they are standing. Especially, after capitolizing on songs talking about getting hard ons for belly dancers. They should know that if they don’t want anything to come back and bite them in the ass then they shouldn’t give stuff away without having their friends sign a contract first. :op

  43. My thoughts… I understand the need to control things. Thing is, they’re so big, so rich, so powerful that the minute they start to exercise control, they’re like a bulldozer and they tend to crush the little people.

  45. In retrospect, another thing I’ve considered is this: the Walt Disney Company are absolutely ruthless with day care centers that paint Mickey Mouse on their windows. I believe they must do this to protect their right to sue over larger copyright infringements. I still don’t know what legal grounds the band has for their actions, but it may be for similar reasons.

  47. I, too, understand the desire to control (to a reasonable degree). I have worked as an artist manager for years and I’m in the middle of pursuing my law degree in the field of Intellectual Property. But stuff like this goes way beyond a reasonable degree of control. This is not about protecting their compositions, their recordings, their likenesses, or even their privacy. This is about their gargantuan ego being bruised by this woman’s desire to profit off of mementoes they relinquished their ownership of over 15 years ago. (It’s no different than her selling her grandmother’s old fur coat.) I wish U2 would take the moral high road on things like this rather than make themselves look like ninnies over their old trousers and boots. And love him as I do, I have to say this has B. written all over it.

  49. And cynic that I am, I would be remiss if I didn’t also mention that the piece in The Daily Record reeks of at least some degree of nepotism. Otherwise why would a journalist care to remark on how deserved/undeserved of a holiday that Lola Cashman had taken? Unless, that is, they are personally acquainted with Ms Cashman (or someone close to her) who tipped the journo off on the story…

  61. If one of my friends gave me a pair of their used shoes as a “present,” and it wasn’t given as a joke, I’d smack them in the face. Seriously, what kind of ego does it take to give someone a pair of your old shoes? What else is she supposed to do with these items besides auction them off? Build a candlelit shrine in her den?

  65. Cindy – thanks for the info on Marion “Madge” Smyth. So the stylist and the dresser were separate persons back then. Poor Sharon has pulled triple duty the last few years; styling them, dressing them AND sewing the bubble disks back onto Bono’s pants. LOL

  69. Wait a minute, Bono gave Cashman a BIBLE as a gift and now she’s auctioning the BIBLE?! It’s a bible a very personal gift in the eyes of Bono.

    No wonder Bono is pissed. I would be too if I gave a sincere gift to someone and then they tried to milk me for all I’m worth.

    Control freaks? No, it’s about respecting a gift and not using someone for your own financial gain.

  73. Um…I come from the south where there’s a Christian book store in every town. They don’t see anything wrong with peddling “The Word”. Does Bono want to change the world in this instance too? It’ll be hard for him since he’s endorsed one version of the Bible already for sale.

  77. Karaoke, I agree that there is no harm in selling Bibles, but if a Bible is given to someone, I think that reselling it is extremely uncool. That is one gift that you should keep. The shoes, however. Maybe I can forgive selling the shoes. 🙂

  79. I think it’s uncool to take sides in something that’s none of my business. I never said it was OK to sell Bibles…I just said it’s done all the time. Maybe her selling the Bono Bible is her way of saying she doesn’t think Bono is God.

  81. Well, Catholocism has been selling the Bible for a couple of thousand years. So what’s worse…selling the Bible that someone gave you, or sending your attorneys after the person that’s selling the Bible you gave them. Seems like there are no winners in this case. But now maybe this woman will sell a few more books. (On a side note, since when do your personal memoirs have to be “authorised” by someone?)

  83. Fan Since 80, you might not like what I have to say but I feel I’ve pretty much followed the posting rules around here. I can be “negative.” I just can’t insult anyone. Besides, the woman auctioning off this stuff wouldn’t think my point of view is negative. Depends on how you look at it. Look, I love U2. Really, I do. But the personalities involved are at times a little hard to take and rather than type out some lame defense just because it’s U2, I take the oppostie approach.

  85. I only have a question for master yoda and whoever else feels like answering. I agree with making a distinction b/t the image and the real person, but I get phuzzie on the interaction with fans. Of course we all know that, with a few exceptions, most fans are more than impressed at how nice/cool Bono and co. handle fans. Is that niceness something we should consider geniune or part of their image?

  87. “Don’t worry baby, it’ll be alright. You got the right shoes to get you through the night…” The fan interaction is all genuine. That means Bono, Adam and Edge’s kindness and Larry’s grunting. I’ve often thought God gave Larry a reverse period. Once every 28 days he gets really pleasant.

  91. I think U2, especially Bono, has been WAY too nice to the fans. Some of them sell the stuff they give them that was supposed to be special to them and not for profit, some take the pics they posed for and use them in unkind ways, some spread gossip and laugh at the band after they have been so generous with them. Some of the idiots who met the band were not worthy of their presence, their time or their kindness. I don’t blame Larry a bit for feeling the way he does about those idiot stalkers who move to Dublin to chase the band and hang around constantly. I’d love to meet the band, but if they got more distant to avoid being harassed or used, I wouldn’t blame them.

  93. If I were famous I’d only hire people I knew before, and have as few henchmen as possible. There are far too many stories of tales told and books written by ex-help of stars. Even if it’s mostly bs, there will always be a doubt and some people will believe it even if the band denies it.
