A day-by-day history of U2, now in its second edition.

Some Research Can’t be Believed

Have a look at this article:

U2’s Unforgettable Fire (Part 1)

Specifically, scroll down to the April 12, 1985, entry.

I looked it up, and Christy Turlington would’ve been 16; Naomi Campbell would’ve been 14. There’s just no way. I’m gonna assume that’s a typo or some such thing.

Plus, in U2 by U2, Bono says the first time he met Turlington was the Vogue magazine cover shoot in 1992. As a male, I have to believe you’d have no trouble remembering the first time you met Christy Turlington. 🙂

    About the models, you might want to check with the author of the article. They probably were already modeling at that age and it is quite possible that the band wouldn’t have remembered meeting them then as it probably wasn’t more than an introduction. On a similar vein as an example, Catherine Falsani, who interviewed Bono for her book “The God Factor” and who traveled with the Heart of America tour tells the story of the first time she met Bono which was in Dublin at the Kitchen drunk off her ass and she said something totally outrageous to him but she says as far as she can tell he doesn’t remember it at all. Either that or he it to much of a gentleman to bring it up. Anyway, I just don’t think it should be dismissed as impossible. Not that it’s important enough to spend too much time on.
