Guinness Book Of Records 2004 @ 11:55 pm

axver:
I'm currently hearin: 'A Celebration (28-02-83)' by U2

I got the Guinness Book Of Records 2004 for Christmas, and while browsing through, spotted the following U2 mention;

'Most Albums Simultaneously On The US Charts: The most albums in the US Top 200 at the same time by the same artist is seven. The Beatles (UK), The Monkees (USA), and U2 (Rep. of Ireland) all share the record.'

U2 also warranted a mention as one of the artists that performed at a concert in memory of Freddie Mercury (record for largest rock-star benefit concert). Anyone know of any other mentions of U2 in this year's (or any other year's) edition of the Guinness Book?

Heh, yeah, I wasn't aware the Monkees had that many either!

And amen about A Celebration! It's FANTASTIC! Why it wasn't on a CD is beyond me. I feel it would've worked perfectly on War in place of Red Light.

Hrmmm..........I was reading an almanac in class some weeks ago, and it must have been 2002 becuase it had a quote from Bono in the Entertainment section saying something about how Ireland would have barred U2 from coming back if they didn't win any Grammies. I don't remember it exactly. :/
