Bono on Radio 1

Radio 1 just had an hour-long U2 special, consisting of a prerecorded Bono interview with Jo Whiley. Apparently you can listen again and download it from the website, although I'm buggered if I can find it at the moment, so I don't think it's available just yet. It was quite interesting, though inevitably some of it was the same old stuff we've heard before!  Here are a few random bits I can remember off the top of my head:

~ Bono wincing at old clips of "ickle Bono" and admitting he doesn't know what he was talking about *g*

~ Bono's favourite U2 song is 'Stay (Faraway, So Close!)' and his second favourite is 'Window In The Skies'

~ The Vertigo Tour was "extraordinary" ;)

~ Bono expects the next tour to happen in a couple of years (hmmmm...) and he would love to play in China and India

~ U218 Singles marks the end of the current U2 era - the next album will be radically different from ATYCLB and HTDAAB!

~ Adam is on fire. Yes, ADAM is on fire! :D  He has "rediscovered his mojo" during the tour. *g*

EDIT: It's on the website now.

EDIT #2: I forgot the best part!  Bono describing how Rick Rubin and Edge are both such calm spirits, they can spend hours together without speaking a word - "just a lot of eyebrows moving". LOL!
