Bono misses Ronnie's party to play with new toy...

It proves the point. Boys never grow up... their toys just get more expensive and should have seen it coming. Especially when Bono gave his 1980 Mercedes banger to charity for the Postcard to Ethiopia event last Saturday night in Killiney Castle near his home which raised £40,000 by the way.

With the banger out of the way the coast was clear for everyone's favourite rocker to splash out. Two weeks ago, Bono bought himself a brand-new out-of-the-box 00D Mercedes 600 cl in burgundy with all the extras including a built-in back massager in the seats. Price tag? Well for a basic model you are talking around 144,295.00 Irish punts. But, for the Bono special you could be talking in and around £200,000 ($350,000.) Twice the price of your average Ferrari.

The only thing is when Bono saw his new toy he didn't like the colour and decided to send it back. So, a week later his new second new car arrived and what colour did Bono want? Brown. Don't ask we, we can't figure it out either.

Furthermore Bono's new car meant he missed a night on the town with Ronnie Wood from the Rolling Stones who also lives in Ireland. On Saturday week a classic rock-and-roll night with the boys was being organised. Everyone's favourite pop star Bono was invited but was running late. Obviously too busy with his new car.

In Lillies, the party was being held by Kildare's number two citizen (after the Irish Minister for Finance Charlie McCreevy, of course). Ron Wood from the Rolling Stones was out of The Priory clinic and ready for action.

Ron had invited some guy from sixties band The Faces and some of their friends for a night out with Bono. By 1am in Lillies, the party boys had moved from the VIP bar to the V-Vip bar in Lillies. Everything was going to plan... except for Bono, the party pooper, looked like he wasn't even going to show at all. And as for Ron. He was on the Ballygowan water.

By 2am, having given up on Bono, Ron gave a shy goodbye as he descended the stairs of Lillies en route to Renards nightclub for some more Ballygowan.

Sources close to Ron told that since Saturday night, after Ron was stood up by Bono, the Rolling Stone fled to the South of France for a holiday. The sources also denied reports that Ron had given orders to close down the pub in his garden in Kildare. "He was in hospital with his liver and the doctors told him to go easy on the drink. He has not got the bar removed from his house. Things aren't that bad."
