U2 front man Bono may be feeling a little red faced after gifting a basket full of Guinness and champagne to music maestro and recovering alcoholic Nile Rodgers.
Nile, whose hits have included We Are Family, I'm Coming Out and Le Freak has steered clear of booze for nearly 20 years.
So the hamper, which included a Black Velvet cocktail recipe, was not the most appropriate of gifts.
But the singer didn't take offence at Bono's misjudged present. Instead he thanked him.
"I came to sound check in Dublin & there was a gift from Bono," he wrote on twitter, adding that he loves Ireland.
Rodgers has previously told of how he realised he had a drug and drink problem when at a party at Madonna's house in the mid 1990s.
He had been on a three-day bender and began to hear voices in his head. It was then he realised he needed to tackle his drink and drug problem.
"It was a resetting of my artistic and moral compass," he has said previously.
Nile has a glittering back-catalogue; and has recorded and produced some of the most iconic pop songs ever recorded, including David Bowie's Let's Dance and Madonna's Like a Virgin.
Yesterday he performed in Belfast to thousands of disco loving fans. Meanwhile, Bono and the rest of U2 took a break from recording their album to shoot a video in Bray.
Crowds gathered round as Bono, Larry Mullen, Adam Clayton and the Edge performed an acoustic version of their classic hit Desire.
The band are tight-lipped about the release date of the new album but The Edge says they are working hard on it.
"We're working away," The Edge told the Herald. "It's going very well. There's no set release date yet. We're getting to the end of the recording phase. We always try and do something different so hopefully it is."
