Jeez, Holly.
It was from a magazine that's sold all over europe.
I bet I can even buy it here in the USA at Boarders in the
imported magazine area eventually. (It takes a few weeks for
them to get here.)
I've been wondering for years when a really nude photo
of Bono would finally show up. He's always been known
to be willing to strip down at the drop of a hat:)
A big fan of skinny dipping. I'm suprised there were
no photos that got out when he took all his clothes off
in a restruant to do an interview. Reports of his younger
years said he was very prone to mooning.
I find the stories that as a teenager he use to ride around
in Strongman's car with other eventual Virgin Prunes members
and when they hit a red light, he would jump to the
middle of the intersection and drop his pants (and underwear;).
I'm sure everybody he knows and many he doesn't has seen his
bare butt at one time or another. Like I said, I was just
suprised at how long it took for some photo's to show up.
The boy ain't shy.
Cool down, it's no big deal.
