God I believe in isn't short of cash, mister!

Lola Cashman

Unless your Lola Cashman , this story has just taken off its posted on Fox and U2Log. Remember U2 have won a legal battle against their former stylist, forcing her to hand over a cowboy hat and clothes she took from them in 1987.

Singer Bono told Dublin’s High Court that Lola Cashman acquired the items without permission during the band’s Joshua Tree tour. She insisted they were a gift to her from the star and appealed against a ruling that she must return them.

In a statement the band said they were “relieved” the legal battle is over.  “Proceedings were issued in Ireland very much as a last resort and with great reluctance,” they said.

It looks as if she has become short on cash ? Who knows maybe a come back, either way we are sure that most bands would avoid the whole hot mess. The site Rock and Roll Auction has just posted a whole mess of items that look like came from her collection. Check them out

The possessions were estimated to be valued at 5,000 euros (£3,400).U2 had been fighting with Ms Cashman over the ownership of a Stetson hat, a pair of metal hooped earrings, a green sweatshirt and a pair of black trousers.

The band was also trying to retrieve a number of other items which had been seen in her flat, including a video tape and monitor, rosary beads and hundreds of photographs.

During the appeal hearing, she claimed Bono was running around in his underwear backstage at the Sun Devil Stadium in Arizona on the last night of the tour when she asked him for the hat.

The court was told he “plonked” it on her head. “Polnked on her head, hum sounds like a message to go put my hat way, not here you go mate take my hat and sell it. This is a problem with fans every item is up sale, or has some value.
