U2’s Face Lift?

What’s in worse physical shape at this moment, Bono or the Joshua Tree? The latest destruction to the Joshua Tree being uprooted is despicable….. but it’s gotta be Bono, right? I mean, have you seen Bono lately? Sure, he looks great not having his humerous hanging out of his ear, but have you looked closely at his face? To me, it looks like he got on his boots and ran face first into a botox needle. And what’s up with his hair? The Joshua Tree’s roots are in better shape……….and they’re dead! Forget about the brown/auburn/reddish highlights, I’m talking about…

A final farewell to ‘travelling pastor’ Jack Heaslip

U2 joined around 100 mourners at the funeral of their ‘travelling pastor’ Jack Heaslip, who passed away at the weekend. The group’s frontman Bono was accompanied by his wife Ali Hewson to the service at St Mary’s Church, Howth yesterday afternoon as they paid their respects to their friend. The 71-year-old clergyman passed away at his home over the weekend after a prolonged battle with motor neurone disease.
