Bono on Kraftwerk
In the latest edition of Uncut, Bono reveals that Kraftwerk were an influence on him. Only a year or so after he hailed Neu! as another influence on U2's later music.
As a Krautrock fan, that's great to read. No doubt without Kraftwerk & Neu! - Achtung Baby & Zooropa most probably wouldn't have been possible.
Now bring on U2's cover of Neon Lights!
