Bono ♥'s The Zutons @ 10:41 pm

canadanne:
Small random thing I came across:

It's not every band that is presented with a bottle of champagne by the mighty U2 - accompanied by a note, handwritten by frontman Bono.

But that's exactly what happened to Liverpool pop-rockets The Zutons.

"We supported U2 and, although we didn't get to meet the band, Bono sent us champagne and a little poem which went along the lines of 'The Zutons are the best band to listen to before we go on stage'," reveals singer David McCabe.

"Unfortunately, the rest of my band got to the champagne before I did so all I saw was the empty bottle!"

Saw the Zutons open for Keane last year at Metropolis here in MTL. Great live band, and I was really disappointed their live energy really doesn't come through on the record at all.

That poem really doesn't sound like some of Bono's best work. Doesn't even rhyme! Lol! ;)

Thing is, McCabe says that the poem "went along the lines of blah blah" so McCabe was probably just paraphrasing.

I know, I got that, I was just having a joke with it. :)

Gah, my jokes never work online, lol! (They don't really work offline, either.)

They did that with Doves too. So I'm guessing they did it with most bands. Apparently Edge watched Doves from his guitar shed thing on the stage.

We had The Zutons and Keane open for U2 in Munich last fall. X) They're really great, I like their bass player especially *lol*. His hair!
