Ivan McCormick interview @ 07:01 pm

I'm currently feelin: amused amused

Anyone still out there?

If you haven't seen it already, @U2 recently published an interview with Ivan McCormick (brother of Neil), who attended the original rehearsal in Larry's kitchen 40 years ago. I am really tickled by the scan of Ivan's diary from the month in question, where he just wrote "Watched TV. Joined a pop group with friends. Had a rehearsal, great" - so funny how he could have had no idea what a significant moment in history it would turn out to be! Just a passing reference amongst the mundane and juvenile activities of a typical schoolkid. :)

Rest in peace. @ 11:24 pm


Heart goes out to Larry. It's never easy...

If anyone hasn't seen the news elsewhere...

The 2015 tour has been announced. See U2.com article here, plus the tour page and FAQs.

There is also a radio interview with Edge here, discussing Bono's injuries as well as the tour announcement.

Bono's extensive injuries revealed @ 07:28 am

We all heard he "injured his arm" in a bicycling crash per the band's statement, but the truth of it is far more grisly and serious. Statement under cut for the easily squicked. Send him prayers, good vibes or whatever you believe in for healing quickly and without complication...

omgCollapse )

note bene I'm an EMT so I can unfortunately picture exactly what all that looked like and how much freaking pain he had to have been in :(

u2 album question @ 11:11 am

Was thinking It would been great if U2 would have put out Songs of Innocence/Experience as a double album so it would more like a journey of songs from Innocence to Experience.
What do you think of this idea?

Songs of Innocence - favourite tracks and single choices? @ 03:52 pm

Now that the new album's been out for almost a fortnight, does anyone want to have a go at ranking the tracks in order of preference, with your favourite song at the top?

Spoiler cut in case anyone is waiting for the physical release!Collapse )

Rowan @ 11:12 pm

The new album made me think of Rowan, who was a huge U2 fan and a part of this community. She died in 2012. I met her once when I flew to England to see a U2 concert at Wembely. She also went to the same concert but we didn't meet there.

She loved U2 so much and it was great meeting her and talking to her about the band.

I wish so much she was here with us now and could listen to the album. Maybe she is listening to it somewhere.

RIP Rowan.
