  1. His words, not mine. Back in 2002 or 2003 we were at a New York Times Talk thingy and Bono was asked about the back problems he was having at the time. Just found a clip from it online. He insisted his back problems weren't from jumping off balconies or anything to do with performing but were from "having far too much sex for my age". Go Bono! I don't think the full audio is available any longer but if you click on "Hear Sample" you'll hear the part I'm talking about. New York Times Talk with Bono Brings back good U2 memories... Bono was brilliant as usual, we wound up with front row seats and I got to ask the final question.
  2. I don't think it's like a song on a cd that needs to be critiqued or debated for it's musical quality. To me it was a prayer to Haiti and the Haitian people. Love it or hate it, love Rihanna and Jay-Z or hate them ... I don't think it matters. It was the sentiment behind the song that made it special. I think it was heart-felt and I think in it's own way it was beautiful. I love U2.... even though I sometimes forget just how much.
  3. Thanks for posting these, they're great!! When were they taken? I would have loved to be there for this, looks like so much fun. Bono's bodyguards don't look like they think it's so fun though. I can see one of them with a look on his face like "How the heck am I gonna get him out of here?" lol

  5. Not sure if anyone already posted these links from YouTube: Gimme Shelter: Stuck in a Moment: Because the Night Looks like a fun time. I'm kicking myself for missing it. (but I still don't like Patti Smith :-X)
  6. You're welcome, sorry it's so small. I have some more videos, bits of Sweet Jane. They're really jumpy but if you want to have a look I'll post it.
  7. When was he actually nominated for this? Someone said the due date for nominations was Feburary 1st. If that's true that would have meant he would have only been in office for weeks at the time. Sorry but even if you are an Obama fan, you have to open your eyes and see how ridiculous this is. Even if it was later, he has not actually done anything to deserve this honor and if he had an ounce of integrity he would respectfully decline and allow the committee to bestow it on someone who actually deserves it. The prize itself has now become meaningless. A popularity contest rather than an actualy award for some type of real achievement.
  8. I'm not sure if it was after this song or the other one but it sounded like Bono said they should add it to their new CD. I think it's Gavin Friday's song, which would make sense, but not 100% certain.
  9. Quality isn't great but it was awesome live. I hope it works
  10. That's what the guy I was talking to last night said too. Was that you?? If so, send me a message with your email, I have a photo of bono leaning over the roof of the car to shake your hand.
  11. I really enjoyed Gavin Friday's show tonight. I have lots of pictures and videos which I'll try to post tomorrow... but what's stuck in my head is Shane MacGowan. He came out on stage with a bottle in his hand. He kept dropping his mic and was staggering around the stage and I just thought it was heartbreaking. I almost cried. I know he's known for his drinking and performing drunk but I never actually witnessed it first hand before. It's sad. After the show I was standing outside and he came out. He posed for a few pictures then as he was walking towards his cab I found myself face to face with him. I didn't intend to say anything but it just came out. I said "Shane, man, you really need to quit drinking, it's going to kill you." Then I saw he still had a bottle and I said "And you're STILL carrying it around with you?? You've got to give it up babe, it's no good for you." (I don't even know where "babe" came from, I never say that to people!) He didn't get mad, he didn't ignore me or walk away.... he took my hand in his, brought it up to his lips and kissed it. It was so sweet that it broke my heart even more. It's really sad. I wonder if his friends have tried doing an intervention or anything with him? I know there's nothing I can do but maybe pray for him and hope that somehow, someday, he'll be able to overcome his demons.
  12. LOL Well, reading the newspaper might be a bit boring. I'm actually hoping that they'll sing the "Here's to You Ronny Drew" song, which I love, but I have a feeling that wouldn't quite fit with the show. Adam said they were going to do about 4 songs, but he made it sound like they'd do them as U2. Whatever, I'm sure it's going to be a great show! And you're welcome Sped and yes, I'm sure it's going to be a fun night.
  13. I checked the website again and it looks like there are only tickets in certain sections available. I sure hope it fills up but if not I hope they let those of us in the upper levels fill up those seats.
  14. Thanks SW. It's going to be tight.. Ronan show at 4pm.. with a reception afterwards. It's a bit much for one day/night and I would skip it but I really love Ronan's voice .... it gives me goosebumps. He's also holds a special place because of the physical challenges he's overcome to get where he is today. Very inspirational and very funny too! Hopefully "Gavin and Friends" will have a few drinks before the show and it won't start on time. I'll refrain from commenting on Courtney Love, but I'm sure she'll add to the "uniqueness" of the show. Have fun and thanks again!
  15. Damn... I just paid 50 bucks for a u2.com membership thinking that was why I couldn't get to the link but it's still not working! Nicer background colors for the paid members... so I suppose that's worth $50 eh? lol
