Fans return notes stolen from Bono 23 years ago

Posted on Thursday, October 21 @ 22:06:56 UTC by Macphisto

(Oregonlive.com) -- Irish musician Bono began his appearance Wednesday night at the Rose Garden with a surprise announcement that could make music news around the world. He said two women returned notes and lyrics that were stolen from him 23 years ago when U2 played a Portland club called The Foghorn.

The lyrics were for U2's second album, "October," which came out belatedly because of the theft. Bono called the returned notes "an act of grace."

"You will never know how much that means to me," Bono said.

Danielle Rheaume of Vancouver, B.C., and Cindy Harris of Tacoma were the U2 fans who returned the stolen notes and lyrics.

Harris said she discovered a stiff brown Samsonite-style briefcase stuffed with about 70 pages of notes in the attic of a rental house in Tacoma in 1981.

The pages included photographs of the band; Bono's passport with his given name, Paul D. Hewson; and letters between the band and early fans and U2's managers. The notes included ideas for songs, including some that seemed to appear in later records, but they were not "polished," Rheaume said.

Harris, 44, said she was a U2 fan at the time, and has been ever since, but did not know the notes had been stolen until many years later. Busy with child-rearing, she said she did not know how to reach the band to return the notes.

In October 2003, she met Rheaume, 27, at work in the personnel department for Washington state. Rheaume spent much of the past year contacting U2's management, attempting to meet them in the United States to return the notes.
