The great big U2 thread

We know there is more to life than the music of the Bunnymen. Talk about those other bands here.

Also being unusually coy (or maybe not) about what it was. Come on Bono, spill the beans lad. I like to think it was something so embarrassing he daren't, like the edge twatted him for 'looking at his missus the wrong way"or Adam did the same because he was willfully taking crack cocaine right in front of him snorting it off a supermodel's arse with a copy of the gideon's bible. The NME used to be able to come up with all sorts of scurrilous rumours, but now they're just up Ed Sheeran's arse. ANyways.........

obviously any professional crack cocaine users might scoff at my possibly naive supposition over the method one uses for taking the old crack. Also, is there only one 'L' in wilful? No, two looks better, willful.

Speaking of bono, 60 songs that saved his life, but obviously he's been troubled or just melodramatic. Says he's going to write to all of em. Buns in at 39 or something (rescue, see what he did there) wonder what he's going to write.......

The Letter Bono sent to the band, apparently......

Echo & the Bunnymen – Rescue

Dearest Ian, Will et al. Bunnymen everywhere…
May 10th this year was a bit of a landmark for me. I turned 60 and from what I can tell I am alive and feeling very grateful to be so… I am also grateful to you and your songs for playing a role in getting me from there to here.

RESCUE is a great song/45/call for renewal and definitely made my life and times better.
I don’t think U2 would be as good as we are without Echo and the Bunnymen… You really raised the standard in what could be achieved by not ‘growing up’…

The guitars, bass and drum so unique, the production of the songs usually so deft and unobtrusive… The voice, the baritone, the bell canto, and the lips like sugar… and weedkiller when they had to be.

I remember the confidence of your early shows, in both production and stance… the giddiness, the giddy up-ness… I was so relieved to see you hadn’t lost any of that vocal/ lyrical power when I saw you on stage at Electric Picnic last year.

Stay safe in every other way.

Your fan,
Bonio
