Ok. Did a token good thing. But he still won`t pay his taxes. He`s a hypocrite.

Almightybob: People who are blind still have a sense of spacial recognition with their other senses. He was looking at Bono`s face because he could hear where his voice was coming from. And he was looking at the fretboard because he still knows where his hand is.

That being said, I think it was kind of ironic that Bono had shades on (in a nearly dark room, btw) and the blind guy didn`t. Which could be consider stereotyping but I`ve never seen a blind person in public without sunglasses.

Thirdly, so if I get on stage in front of a few thousand people and play a couple of open chords with Bono singing I can have his (awesomely sweet) guitar? Deal.

Awesome. My dad is blind from a chemical accident. Nice to see stuff like this. Classy.

I don`t think that guy was blind. He kept looking at Bono`s face and making eye contact with him, or looking down at the fretboard.

Still, pretty cool though.

"He meant blind as in random. You know like a blind date? A random date. He meant that he was picked random."

No, the guy was actually blind. If you had watched to the end you would have seen them helping him off stage because he couldn`t do it himself.

@Jats
I just said it, look at the video @3:08
The guy is exited, waving, yelling at the audience...
Then Bono comes from the back, takes him by the arm
and practically pulls him off

That`s what I saw... He was awesome giving him the guitar
and all, but I found that kinda rude too

That`s really nice of Bono...
But, is it just me or he was kinda rude too? Specially at the end,
when he graved that man`s hand and got him to the front, like
"ok dude, get the fk off the stage now"

I don`t know, that`s my opinion

Maybe Bono would have better luck finding it if he would take those f*cking stupid sunglasses off once in a while.

Added note: I guess the guy was holding up a sign in the audience that he was blind--something like that.

Also, that green Gretsch `Irish Falcon` guitar is no piece of crap--I`m sure Bono has dozens made for him, but it`s a signature edition, very sweet piece of hardware. I`m jelly of that blind guy.
