Baby Larry!  
I just found this photo while doing a bit of internet surfing at lunch, and I'd not seen it before, so I thought maybe my flist Larry girls might enjoy seeing it. Click to enlarge it.

Enjoy! :D

His legs are still the same size! =P
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on January 12th, 2007 05:59 pm (UTC)
Ha! Yes, I think they are! And B's arse is still as round. *giggle*

I love the little toothpick legs. As well as the tight form-fitting jeans. As well as the round heinie.

Is that Ali?
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on January 12th, 2007 07:42 pm (UTC)
Yes, it is Ali. Bono in the foreground with the gorgeous arse, Ali facing him, then Larry behind Ali. And yeah, the toothpick legs are so cute! And not so very different from today, either. He could go back to wearing supertight jeans, though. ;D I wouldn't mind at all.

Ali looks like she's totally ignoring them both, which completely amuses me.

I wonder if it was Edge taking the picture?

Baby Bono arse...*drool*

*squeal* Thank you for posting this! I didn't have it and I simply love it!

Larry and Ali and Bono's... ehm... back, and Dublin in the late 70's and... gorgeous!

Of course, I tried to figure out where they are and failed. (probably somewhere downtown Dublin, due to the architecture... hmmm... could that actually be Earl Streeth North...? a little further down from the Bonavox... ? nope, no clue!)

Thanks, dear! *nuzzles*
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on January 12th, 2007 10:32 pm (UTC)
You're welcome! I also tried to place it, heeee. At first I thought Grafton Street, but then I saw the cars, so that's not it. It might be Earl St. North... just not quite sure. Amused, though, that someone else also tried to place it. And yes, Bono's....egm, back.... is in fact quite lovely. ;D

I love baby Ali almost as much as baby Larry :)

I hope you and Jeanie have a great time at the Mountain Rock festival.

Given your tagline, you may enjoy my U2 story. All true of course.
nosferatuvoice: Sav Devilish Smirknosferatuvoice on July 3rd, 2007 09:56 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I am over the moon with excitement over seeing Lep again! And I've friended you. So tell me this U2 story? I have one of my own, but it's not nearly as exciting as yours, I expect.
lloydg on July 3rd, 2007 11:34 pm (UTC)
Haha, yes, and Deep Purple as well...

Go raibh maith agat, I have friended you back. :)

The words "my story" in the previous post should be a clickable link to a forum where I posted the tale some time ago. If it doesn't work, let me know and I'll repost it here.

And then tell me your U2 story. There's every chance it's more exciting than mine.
nosferatuvoice: savy lovenosferatuvoice on July 5th, 2007 12:06 pm (UTC)
Oh, right. I'll go check that. And actually friend you, now that lj is cooperating. (It wouldn't let me friend anybody last time -- kept crashing when I'd try, lol.)

And you speak irish too? We're going to get along just fabulous, I'd say! I can't spell it for shite, but I speak it well enough.
nosferatuvoice: Bono 'n Me 10/25/05nosferatuvoice on July 5th, 2007 12:14 pm (UTC)
Yep, it worked! And it's a cool story! Since Sinead didn't respond, I'll give you the answer to your last question: She goes by Ali Hewson now. ;D

My story is more typical. I was lucky enough to have GA tickets to one of the Detroit, MI shows in October 2005. At around 4pm myself and about 30 others were standing 'round the stage door when the band arrived for soundcheck. Bono came out and took the time to speak with each of us for a few seconds, even though he was already late. I got to shake his hand, speak with him for a moment, and have a memory to last a lifetime. The icon shows the two of us on that day, taken by a friend. That friend has had oodles of Bono experiences and is on first-name basis with him, the lucky girl. He gave her a kiss that day when he saw her. He's incredibly approachable and kind, I must say.

Glad you got to it... yeah, I'm The Guy Who Almost Knew Bono. And it's a total laugh to think of me hitting on Bono's girl, since in those days I couldn't get any girl. XD

Any of the people I knew who were associated with U2 were nice, and I expect they still are. From your LJ profile I see you've even heard of the Virgin Prunes, I'm impressed! I knew The Edge's brother, Dick Evans, who I think was one of the Prunes. A very bright guy, he had a TCD Foundation Scholarship in engineering and therefore got the formal evening meal ('Commons') free. I also got free Commons, so that's where I got to know him.

I like your story, I imagine Bono is still very easy-going and approachable. You might be amused to know that in the very earliest U2 gigs, Bono used to do jerky 'robot moves' when he wasn't singing... rather like some mime-artists do as street entertainment. He did it well, but evidently decided to drop it. I honestly don't know if that's ever been documented, you would know better than me!

I see you've lived in Dublin but it also seems you've spent a few years in Galway. The latter would explain conas feidir leat caint as Gaelige. I'm Irish of course, lived in Dublin (Churchtown, Dublin 14) until I was 21.

Thanks for friending, I see a billion flocked entries of yours have magically appeared!
nosferatuvoice: black and white U2nosferatuvoice on July 5th, 2007 01:45 pm (UTC)
LOL, yes, a billion flocked entries indeed. Since I lost my job almost everything has been flocked, to protect me from possible future employers taking a gawk at my lj and cutting me from the potential employee list. And most of my entries of late have been dealing with the job search and my depression over the poor prospects. But I'll get interesting again someday, I promise!

Yes, I lived in Dublin in the summer of 1986 -- best summer of my life. If I could be in Dublin, that would be where I was all the time. Love, love, love the place. And I lived in Galway for three years while doing a degree in Irish history.

As for the robot moves -- I've seen a couple of very, very old tele show appearances where he does them, and laughed myself silly over it. Thank God he dropped that particular stage antic!!!

As for hitting on Bono's girl, I'm sure you were better off than you thought! And it's very cool you knew Dik (I think that's how he spelled his name whilst a Prune). I'd love to hear more of your stories about living in Dublin and your stories abut Dik, too.

We have opposite problems... I never have time to blog (and in any case have nothing to blog about) because I always seem to be working. :( Anyway, good luck with the job-hunt, it really is just a matter of perseverence and - to some extent - luck.

Wow, a degree in Irish history? O_o Again with the opposites, history (especially Irish history) was always my worst subject in school. These days I am interested in early Irish mythology... and indeed mythology in general. But history is still a very weak area.

Well it's good to know that Bono's robot-move stuff was real and that I didn't dream it, lol. BTW talking to you about the band and dusting off my ancient memories has prompted me to buy the 'U2 18 Singles' album, which I'm now listening to. I guess I'm a bad U2 fan... I'm sure I'd have paid more attention if Ali (or indeed any girl) had been in their line-up. ;)

Whereabouts in Dublin did you live? I had left Ireland by the time you arrived. Of course, I still have family and friends there today and go back from time to time.
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on July 7th, 2007 02:31 pm (UTC)
I lived on Capel Street, above a butcher's shop for the summer of 1986. It wasn't fancy by any means, but I loved it.

There are no bad U2 fans. Every last one of 'em is wonderful and kind and friendly!
