"That particular way of shooting requires you to be very close to the body … So I had to kneel down in front of him. I was very close to . . . everything." — Anton Corbijn, on photographing Adam nude for the Achtung Baby cover

A pair of Bono's guitars and one from The Edge are up for auction next month at "Icons and Idols," a New York City event being hosted by Julien's Auctions. The auction will include:

  • one of Edge's Gibson Explorers that he's been using since the original Joshua Tree tour in 1987 (pictured above center)
  • one of Bono's autographed Gretsch Irish Falcon guitars that he began using in 2005 (pictured above right)
  • a black Gretsch Falcon guitar that Bono used in concert in 2003 at the Pavarotti & Friends charity concert in Modena, Italy (pictured above left)
  • two autographed photos of Bono

The auction happens on November 10 at the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square. There are multiple sessions -- the U2 items will be auctioned in the 1:00 pm session. If you're in the area, everything will be on display from November 5-9. Want to bid? You can do that in person on the 10th, or online anytime before then by visiting JuliensAuctions.com. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Musicares.
