He died after a heart attack some time ago. Their biggest hit was "Blue Lady".

 

 

And he doubtless turned blue towards the end!

I dream of the day I can use "MY WIFE IS BONO. SHE IS NOT LARRY." in a conversation


That is a fabulous quote.

Though technically incorrect - U2 *is* Larry's band. Was at the beginning and always will be. Ask the rest of U2.

Dolores has always been a bit of an up-herself cow with OCD tendancies. The rest of the band are lovely.

Any reference to D O'R mandates the reposting of the quotes from the court case her former nanny put against her.
 

In three days of evidence, Ms Fahy, who has also worked for the model Elle McPherson and U2's drummer, Larry Mullen, said she suffered stress due to the lifestyle of the couple.

She said the trouble began when she accompanied them to their lakeside retreat in Canada in June 1999. She told the court Mr Burton drank at all times of the day, the couple took their baby son on quad-cycles, and Mr Burton once drove him around the lake on a jet-ski without a life jacket, while holding a can of beer.

Ms Fahy said Ms O'Riordan would iron for hours, sometimes the same items over and over. Sometimes, in the evenings, the singer would hand her the sleeping child and tell her to give him a bath. The idea was to wake him so he would sleep late the next morning, not disturbing her.

Ms Fahy said Mr Burton would say absurd things. During one row, he kept shouting: "You don't get it, do you? My wife is Bono. She is not Larry."

The nanny complained about being left alone with the child in a remote area, without a car, and said at one point Ms O'Riordan went "ballistic". Shouting "everyone is against me", she took the baby from the pram and ran towards the lake, Ms Fahy said. Mr Burton, who had been drinking, went upstairs and told Ms Fahy: "You're fucking fired and you know jack shit about horses."

 

 

Wow, Craaaaaazyyyyyy. Actually, this is not the first time I heard of her unusual behavour, but I can't recall what else I heard.

Owens "Boomer" Castleman, singer-songwriter and guitarist, has died. http://www.thedailyb...omer-castleman/

 

Earliest days were in the formation of Lewis and Clarke Expedition (Under the pseudonym Boomer Clarke), here is Destination Unknown: https://youtu.be/bWdAo-vNtTw

 

Here also is his solo hit, Judy Mae: https://youtu.be/x4sD-gzHm5Q

 

Latterly became heavily involved the Nashville country music scene. I have a feeling he wrote for The Monkees, but enough research for now.

 

Edit: In fact it might be this one: https://youtu.be/sSYJDNSUkN8
