"Despite their monolithic, impenetrable status, U2 manages to project an air of humanity—of human vulnerability—that sounds clear over the noise, and this humanity continues to sell records".

 

A long story in Forbes about "Why is this band–still popular after all these years–still this popular?"

Wow that is such a good read, so well written, that you for posting it, a certain pride in the guys came over me :wub:.

 

I hope they have read it - maybe it will answer Bono's question about their relevance - they will always have a place, their own place.

Well written article, but the writer obviously does not know that U2 use backing tracks when they play live. Pre recorded parts like vocals, extra percussion and samples. Either he is not really a U2 fan and does not follow them or know their live history. Did he even watch the tonight show when Invicible was played to backing tracks?

I thought he was referring to just the Oscar performance.  Must've read it too fast.  But like Anjana said, shhhhh....  No one must know about the underworld.
