A briefcase containing lyrics for songs meant to be used in U2’s 1981 album “October” has been returned to the group’s lead singer Bono, 23 years after it was stolen at a Portland concert.
Cindy Harris of Washington state found the briefcase in the attic of a rental home in Tacoma, Washington, in 1981, but said she did not learn that it had been stolen until years later. She contacted the band recently. . . .
The return was an “act of grace”, the singer said.
