By Jeff Miers Now, he's the butt of jokes, the guy every late-night comedian and radio blabbermouth will point to when they need a cheap laugh at the expense of liberal "save the world" types. Back then, he was a spotty Irish kid just out of his teens, whose heart was threatening to burst wide open, and whose passion ran an arm's length ahead of his abilities. Is there any real connection, any true continuity, between the singer who called himself Bono Vox in 1980, and the grizzled...

But that was the case in the early '80s as four poufy-haired Dubliners set off on a journey to the center of world attention. Back then, however, it was doubtful they'd ever get there. The band now revisits that era by rereleasing its first three albums _ "Boy,""October" and its U.S. breakthrough, "War." Hard-core Bono-ites will be salivating over the...
