"The word suggests his shape, his vibe. There was a hearing-aid shop, Bonovox of O'Connell Street. I thought he looked like the place." — Guggi, on the origins of Bono's name



by Eric Schwab

Let me preface this by saying I've never been the biggest fan of the band. I do own the essentials; War, Unforgettable Fire, Joshua Tree, Achtung Baby and All That You Can't Leave Behind. This concert has made me a believer in this band. I can't remember the last time I was so excited. Although the band has reached rock royalty status with this tour and album, they genuinely seem to love what they do and seem to really love their audience. I cried when they showed the names of everyone who lost their lives during "One". It was a nice bit of healing for America. I loved it so much, I'm actually paying through the nose from a ticket agency to see them again on Monday!
