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.
