Today’s Mirror features an article in which Bono describes when he and Edge were confronted by an armed robber in Germany.
“A guy walks up with a gun. I turned around and just said ‘f*** off,'” Bono said. “He kind of looked at me, but me and Edge just kept on walking and talking.”
When the two musicians turned around to check what the robber’s reaction was, they saw the man shoot the gun off in another direction. Only after the “posh f***-off rock stars” (as Bono called himself and his friend) were safely out of harm’s way did they realize the seriousness of the situation.
