Hey, Was That Bono I Just Saw?

According to the PEACH FUZZ Blog, CBS Triple A WZGC (DAVE FM)/ATLANTA’s brand-new morning man JIMMY BARON had Atlantans blowing up FACEBOOK and TWITTER TUESDAY, OCTOBER 6th about seeing U2 lead singer BONO seemingly everywhere in ATLANTA.
In reality, it was BARON in a limo with ATLANTA house painter BARRY BURDEN, a guy who also makes his living as a BONO impersonator. They made strategic stops all over the city.
Apparently, some U2 fans caught onto to the ruse (the real BONO currently has short hair while BURDEN maintains the iconic BONO slicked back look). Posted one DAVE FM listener on BARON’s FACEBOOK page: "It looks like BONO’s put on a few pounds."
