  1. But..! But..! But what if he *can* play and it's a crap guitar?!? when Bono puts a guitar on, it's a accessory... I'm like 'take it off now before you do yourself harm!' This explains the WOWY video.
  2. I'm a lefty too, all the greats are. I think it's good that he's giving his guitar away because Bono can't play for shite. My exact train of thought. But..! But..! But what if he *can* play and it's a crap guitar?!?
  3. I love puns. Sorry it went over my head. /DaftMJG3
  4. Everything was ugly but your beautiful face And it left me no illusion
  5. I was unable to catch the show last week (thanks for the linking, nonetheless, bigwave!), as having a 1-year old can be hit or miss at the computer. At least I can watch TV with him on those evenings he is difficult to get to sleep, so my wife & I watched her favorite BBC personality host my favorite band. She was cracking up laughing when Bono feigned to be talking to the spot 3' to Graham's right, talking about glaucoma. It felt good sharing that together. I can now agree with all of the above posts -- that was truly amazing.
  6. I see this is a case of... "No, no, it's spelt 'Luxury-yacht,' but it's pronounced, 'throat wobbler mangrove.'" Thanks, all! I figured it was pronounced "Topes" due to its origin in Zootopia, but can see how "Tops" is as valid (hence my question).
  7. I will Enjoy The Silence, with Depeche Mode. *rimshot*
  8. It's lovely the stories here and all U2 appearances and radio showS, photographs.... .the Jo Whiley show was amazing with the orchestra. We go from nothing to somethings real quick, awesome, awesome.Thanks U2 and everyone!!! That is true. Between the Itunes drop and the release of the physical cd, the silence was killing me, but this past week has been amazing. Seconded
  9. This is just stellar. I really enjoyed reading through this and giving it a listen the other night when I had a chance, at last. Question: Is 'Zootops' pronouced "Zoo-tops" or "Zoo-topes?" (Does it even matter?) Thanks, everyone, for sharing.
  10. I only disagree because I'm selfish and prefer albums coming out every three years, maximum. I was spoiled by the 70's and 80's. Heh. More seriously, I agree with the sharp comment. They're at another peak here, methinks. That's just incredible in an age where music is even more "disposable" than the music of the 1980's was. I even remember Bono quoted around that time (1988 or so) that there wasn't much good music out there; something like music has ground to a halt or something like that. Looking at my iPod (which has all of my 27,000+ songs on it), he was right. Then, 1991 happened and both pop and rock got shots in the arm from Manchester and Seattle, respectively.
  11. I went with EBW, too, but Iris, Cedarwood Road, Invisible, Lucifer's Hands, and Crystal Ballroom are all close behind. I remember when Electrical Storm was released as a single in 2002 with The Best of 1990-2000 and a Philadelphia-area DJ was saying how impressive U2 is with releasing another amazing song after (at that time) 20+ years. Well, here we are 12 years after that statement and it remains true. I can't wait for Songs of Experience -- and hope a lot of the "abandoned" projects from 2009 - 2014 see the light of day, for subscribers or for the public at large.
