Me 2

Funny U2 Quotes.....

BP: Is Elvis alive or dead?
ADAM: Elvis is alive.
BP: Have you ever seen him?
ADAM: I see him every day.
BP: Is he in the band?
ADAM: He thinks he is.

Larry Mullen Jr: a man so handsome he will never sing lead for this band - Bono

Q: If the four of you were in a fight, I mean a truly tough brawl, which one of you would kick the other three's asses? (NME interview, 2001)

Larry: Bono
Adam: Bono
Edge: Bono
Bono: Me

"I just passed Adam, I said, Adam, you're 40, do you have anything to say? And he said, obscurely, How long do I have to sing this song?" - Bono, in the YahooChat, 12 March 2000

"Bass players get the weirdest fans. I tend to get the bespectacled M.I.T. students. Bono gets the poets. And Larry, unfortunately, gets the girls. We should have gotten a Ringo." (Edge, U2 at the End of the World, Bill Flanagan, 1995)

any future U2 dvd's?

I finally caved and bought Elevation Boston (it was literally calling my name!) and it was the best $25 I had every spent :-). Anyway, since now I'm an even poorer college student, I have a question. I really enjoyed the trailers for the ZooTV and PopMart videos and I was wondering if those were ever going to come out on dvd. I'm trying to stop buying videos and just get dvd's since I find they are more practical. Anyone have a clue? Its probably too early to ask but I figured I'd try anyhow.

From U2.com

U2 Will Perform at the 2002 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles in February - and may add tour dates this year.
Adam. Larry, Edge and Bono were "thrilled and really excited, and not at all blase," U2 manager Paul McGuinness told news agency Reuters from the band's Dublin base after he tracked them down across Europe to break the good news. "There's a lot of very distinguished records on this list."
U2 will perform at the Grammys, McGuinness confirmed, and is considering touring Europe in the summer. U2 played 115 shows across North America and Europe in 2001.

"U2 Weekend on MTV2"

As many of have already found out from various fansites U2 will be heavily featured on MTV2 this coming weekend 1/12-13 and eventually throughout next week til 1/18.

Here's the rundown of what will be shown on MTV2 starting this Saturday:

--"U2 Video Timeslide"--slated to be 4hours long. I assume this is going to be similar to MTV's 1997 special called "U2: A-Z Videos" feature. We'll eventually have to wait and see what they will come up in the 4hours here..

--"U2 Live at MSG"(Madison Square Garden?)--What exactly is this? No further details have been given yet on this special slated to be 60min. long. I assume it will be a short version of the Boston show but it does say "LIVE in MSG" in various websites advertising this program.

--"U2 on Tour: Leaving Nothing Behind"--many of you have probably seen this 30min. documentary over the summer about the 1st leg of the Elevation Tour. No surprises in this one..

Once again, these are the 3 programs that will be aired throughout the coming weekend and in the middle of next week on MTV2. Check your local listings for time and channel. More info. on these specials will be given when they are available..

no feckin way!

You're chill and you're often more on the practical side than others. If you're commited, you're a powerhouse. Your taste in hats is sometimes questionable. </td>

oh, something else cool.. i posted my story here before about getting on stage with U2 to play guitar.. well, i just found out something! my friend listened to the recording of the show i have (i still havent listened to it, i cant for some reason..) and he heard something my mom didnt hear when she was transcribing what he sang to me. when i first got up there, he didnt say "theres a girl here who wants to play guitar" like she thought. he says "this g.. my girl here wants to play guitar". my girl! my girl!!!! there was a weird thing that happened earlier in the night during new years day.. he looked down at me and did a double take then said something away from the mike and made a motion. i was utterly baffled by it. my friends around me were saying - he remembers you! and everyone who didnt know me was like - what was that? i just had no idea. thought there was no way he could remember the handshake and stare/gaze into my eyes from april outside a venue. he said "youre cool". dude - he called me cool for no reason! i also had met him at the airport a few days after than incident. but man, he sees so many people! well, im sure he didnt remember the circumstances under which we met, but now im certain he did remember my face. :-D
sorry for rambling, just thinking about this gets me so hyped up!!!!
oh, and if any of you wanna check out the story of me onstage, you can go here

Alright, I can't let hapavox have all the fun. ;-) I scanned a slew of pictures from the Joshua Tree tourbook this evening, and I've decided to make my posting debut in the U2 community by posting some of these gems. Anton Corbijn was the photographer and I believe they were shot in late 1986, perhaps early 1987, in the Southwestern United States.

These are thumbnails and will link to rather large (160-200K) versions.

More will come later! Hope you all enjoy these.
