Instead of Interpol for the second gig. Its Ash!
Would have prefered Interpol, but at least I get to see them in Glasgow anyways!!
I get to see U2 later today!! :-DDDDD
I've been thinking lately about each band member's best individual performance on a particular song. It's a hard thing to nail down. After all, as musicians, arguably no one band member would be considered the best in the business at their particular craft. It's the four of them playing together that make U2 so spectacular (and also likely the reason for their longevity...can you imagine any one band member putting out a solo album!?).
Nevertheless, it's fun to get people's opinion on such things.
So my question to you today is this...
Which U2 song is Larry's best performance on the drums?
My personal choice is Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me. I first saw U2 live during PopMart, and Larry's drumming during that song completely blew me away. Now whenever I see them, I find myself focusing on Larry's sound.
Out of Control
I want to give credit to person who created this icon in my keywords. Please let me know who you are!
"I am giving one of you guys the opportunity to win a U2 ticket to Saturday 18th June in London Twickerham. It is a seated ticket on the left handside, Block33, Row 36, Seat 172 and you will be seated with me and if you win you will just have to meet me there. You also need to be prepared to give me your mobile number.
For the chance to win you just have to answer this simple question: What is Bono's real name (Include his middle name to)?
It's that easy! Just Mail me at email@example.com and in the subject header put U2 Ticket Competition."
WHY do I have to live in Texas? :-/
I saw this U2 video last night and I can't remember the title so I'm hopinh you can help me..
It was from the Joshua Tree era, Edge had his long hair, Adam's hair was cut but and Bono had that shoulder length hair. At the end of the video Bono cuts his fingers with a razor then just lets loose. It's hair raising.
Anyway, the video was simple just the guys standing around in black with a black blackground...OH! Larry was playing the bongo's!!!! And there was something with a round staircase outside. The album had three words in the title, three small words.
If you have any information that would be great. I'll look on VH1 Classic to see if I can find a playlist
I intern as a reporter with the News-Times, a newspaper in Danbury, CT, and one of the people I recently interviewed was a writer from Danbury, David Tatge, who just released his very first novel. What was cool about him was his love for music (he has a room devoted to his guitars, and owns about 1300 CDs) and also, his love for U2.
In his book he sort of adds music to the chapters. Before each one he puts what song he thinks should be playing at that time in the story. Apparently Chapter 1 should be read with "Bad" playing :)
He was pretty cool, and a little bummed that he couldn't get tickets to any of the May shows (as were many people, haha).
The book isn't really that relevant to U2 after that (and one line) but it's still a cute story. It's called "Playing by Ear" if anyone's interested.
A line from the second page:
"Running to stand still. You said it, Bono."
:) I love U2 references.
On tonight's episode of Jeopardy!, one of the contestant's stories for his mini-interview with Alex was about Bono.
He said that he first ran into Bono in a men's room in New Haven, Connecticut 20 years ago. Bono asked for directions out of the rest room (!!!). The contestant ran into Bono again recently, and Bono asked him if he knew a good place to get a cup of coffee.
I don't think I'd heard a U2-related anecdote on Jeopardy! before.
