U2 face former stylist in court
SO got teh phonecall that U2 were in court so headed down for a nose.
It was mental – The court room was more packed than the bomb shelter.
Watched Bono and Larry take the stand nad hung on after they left.
There was loads of laughter in the court when Bono was giving evidence
Some of his doosies
He agreed he had different trouser designed for him in diferent sizes because of a weight problem,
But so did Elvis
When he recalled touring / do promotion for the joshua tree and trying to improve their image he said
‘In a way it was the thing we always thought the last about as might be obvious looking at the earlier photos’
There was more laughter when he explained to the judge about a posed live shot they had done using wardrobe. Ever the salesman he said
‘That photo is today available in music stores – you can get it at €9.99’
Bono was then accused of performing a legal stunt to secure a stay in another case Bono replied
‘How on earth can it be a legal stunt to protect your reputation?’
When asked about the hat and its status Bono said
‘You try as a songwriter to place your work, not just on the road, not just in people’s cars and homes but into their consciousness’
When her barrister asked about how they could have known about the value of the items back and what they would be worth Bono said
‘we had delusions of grandeur from the very beginning’ to laughter
Also funny was a load of Barristers scrambling to get autographs
Case continues today but I’ll be in Wales
There is a song in all this
‘Bono where’s your trousers’ to the air of ‘Donald where’s your troosers’
