U2hl....

You know U2's music is powerful when churches are filled beyond capacity because the house music is not traditional hymns....but they're rocking 'still haven't found what I'm looking for' instead..

Or universities, academics study and analyze their lyrics/music

The church of U2....or should I say theology?

I've never been a religious person so-to-speak(despite raised strict Roman Catholic).....but, U2 has inspired me to be very spiritually aware.....

Isn't that the ultimate goal of God...to reach people with his word?

I'm alw ays thinking about Bono! 

All those dangerous places he goes! He always makes me worried.

But a health scare! That gets me worried and upset.

Bono is such a lovely man with a big heart. I hope he is well and will keep being well.

I can understand to keep it quiet! If the paparazzi find out? It is more likely to sound worse than it is!

And even then Bono has a right to have some privacy.

Something's may be better if they are quiet, it may be something we don't want to hear!

Even if he is fine! If he wants to keep it quiet or private! We should respect that!

May God always be with you Bono.  I will love you always Bono. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx :wub: Karen.

I wondered about it, too.  What's this talk about the liner notes?  When I heard about the "health scare" the first thing that popped into my head was a mental health issue.  Bono went all-in on his anti-Trump stance (very vocal and frontal in his criticism of Trump in the lead up to the election) and I think that he didn't anticipate that a) Trump would win and b ) the blow back it would have.  Bono's ambitions, related to Africa, depend enormously on cooperation with the Executive branch of the US government and Trump is a different animal than past Presidents.  Trump puts his own ego before all else and will have no qualms about letting people in Africa die to make a point.  Bono's criticism of Trump will have a direct impact on Bono's philanthropic ambitions for Africa.  If Bono woke up to this reality and internalized all of this I could see where that might have caused a bit of a crisis and guilt.  The stakes are so enormous.  The first thing I thought to myself, after listening to the album one time through, was "man, Trump winning really got in Bono's head".

He doesn't specify what caused it ("I won't dwell in it or on it. I don't want to name it"), but he repeatedly mentions "a shock to the system" and having been "arrested". Draw your own conclusions...

Maybe....sdavids.....

Bono may have been a  bit depressed from Trump winning the election....all the hard work he has paved within the political arena....all in vain or  reversed under trumps rule?

But, I don't think that is just the isolated variable, that pertains to his so-called "health scare''.....

I'm thinking 'health scare' even more abstractly than you, sdavids....

I had a dream/vision that someone tried/threatened to kill Bono.....maybe over Trump....or just reflecting the crazy  culture of our times. maybe Bono felt vulnerable/paranoid and mentally isolated due to this type of 'health scare'

still abstract though.....

If it was a physical problem that occured(heart, stroke or cancer)....no way in hell a doctor would allow Bono to tour.....

Unless, God forbid, he is terminal... and said....live your life to its fullest.....but, still.....he wouldn't have the energy to sustain it all.

I do worry about the glaucoma.....and Bono going blind....that indeed, is a life changing 'health scare'.....

Not knowing, drives me insane.....and keeps us guessing and assuming....

And you know what happens when you *ass* u *me*?????:wacko:

I don't believe his choice of words is insignificant. He also describes it as a "brush with mortality" that left him "clinging on to my own life like a raft". Later on, he writes: "I'd like people who listen to these songs to know that a lot of them I approached with a sense that I might not be around to hear them on the radio or in the stream of things." Edge has described it elsewhere as "trauma that could've been fatal". It's clear that whatever happened was about as serious as it gets. I just hope it's not something that will happen again.

Since we will probably never know what truly happened and any thoughts are purely speculation, I think it’s time to give this topic a closure and just be happy that they’re all still here.
