Rock star found the “most beautiful painting known to man” at the U2 front man’s house.
Rock star Robbie Williams has described a bizarre event at Bono’s house a few years ago after he ate some magic mushrooms. Williams provided the account of his odd night in Bono's house in an interview with Ireland's Sunday Independent.
"I was in Bono's house years and years ago and I was looking at an amazing painting. I managed to get hold of some mushrooms before I went there. So, I wasn't really of the planet at the time.
"But the great and good of the world were there and I just felt like a fish out of water. Primarily because I was on magic mushrooms! I'm in love with Bono. I love him. And I am wandering around his house and I stop, and I look, and I realize Bono has purchased the most beautiful painting that has ever existed, the most beautiful painting known to man.
"And there I am standing, staring at it. In my head, I'm thinking: 'Of course Bono is going to have the most beautiful painting in the world. He deserves it and so he should have it.' And at that moment, Bono appeared. And I said to him, 'Bono – this is the most beautiful painting that I have ever, ever seen.' And Bono said to me: 'Robbie, that's the window.'"
Williams,43, soared to fame in the early 1990s as a member of Take That. He left Take That in 1995 and has had a successful solo career.
