This won't be so much of a diary, it's more likely to be a collection of odd musings and witterings on a variety of topics and issues that might spill out ocassionally from a "grumpy old man" or just me opening up, but it's pretty much inoffensive stuff.........I hope.

The reasons as to how and why I wanted something like this built into this site is described in the first entry made a few years ago now, maybe I should have stuck to the original idea and called this Bono's Hat rather than simply, Diary...My later entries explain why it didn't change...... At times I may be a gobby bloke from Bermondsey but I certainly ain't rich enough yet to have the arse sued off of me by Messrs U2.

I had hoped that a few other friends would also contribute the odd piece along the way to liven things up, provide a laugh or just comment on those things that happen along the way to make you ask the question, why, but they now seem to have gone off and done their own blogs!

Feel free to mail me if you want to take issue on any point or simply want to join in.

Unashamed plug

If you check out my "friends" pages you'll see some new additions. My brother, Matt, has ventured out into the world of photography in no small way.

After many years working for Pete Townshend of The Who, he has packed it all in and moved onwards and upwards. His photographs and video's of The Who were in my opinion superlative and showed the band in their best light since the very early photo's of Tom Wright etc.

He has a great eye for a photo and without doubt his gig [and other] photo's are great. Check them out on the "friends" pages and then go visit his website at

all the best
