"Who is Bono?" says Neil Young in a interview with fans

Recommended Posts

Neil Young took part in a Twitter Q&A session earlier today (October 24), in which he asked his fans "who is Bono?".

The legendary rocker made the dismissive comment about the U2 frontman after he was asked what his opinion was of the band Foster The People. Young was asked by @akemi99 "what do you like about foster the people? #askneil btw, bono said he likes them, too... it is surprising two super stars like them..". Young replied: "who is Bono?".

Ha ha ha! Bravo, Mr. Young. The addition of Bono to the question was needless. It should have just been about Mr.Young's interest in the other musicians.

Neil Young is a legend love his music, sounds like he's beginning to suffer from senile dementia though.

 

Then again who is Bono? He only seemed to pop up evey five years or so with some band called U2. Do U2 still exist? I thought they split up a long, long time ago???

It doesn't mean he doesn't like Bono. He likes himself more and was being cheeky. Although, didn't he just recently say something else about Bono?

He's making a joke. As if there's anyone left in the free world" who hasn't heard of Bono. I thought it was funny.

And isn't this a tabloid doing what they do best? - inciting hatred by calling the comment "dismissive" of Bono.

To be fair to Bono, his speech was long but Frank was taking his time. Young though is allowed to speak his mind.

I just think it is not big of a deal.

I think Neill was just taking the piss. I'm sure he respects Bono. He did afterall okay the use of 'Keep On Rockin'' for the Vertigo tour right?

 

Or are we facing another future 'Send In the Clowns' debacle?

I think Neil was blaming organisers for putting ceremonies on TV and forcing winners to cut short their speeches as much as he was blaming Bono for taking a long time to get to the point, and thus preventing Sinatra from saying everything he wanted to.
