The Pathology of Having a Right Nice Time
A dilettantish mix from Roo Dog.
My dad saw Bono get kicked in the balls.
My dad met a drunk man in Dublin in the early 80s who claimed he used to play bass with the singer from a new band called U2. He invited my dad to see them play in a local pub.
The band were congregating outside the pub and the drunk tried to strike up conversation with Bono.
Bono told the drunk to “fuck off”.
The drunk kicked Bono in the balls, and ran away.
