More UNCUT Legends talk @ 04:19 pm

I'm currently feelin: cheerful cheerful

I just wanted to say that I picked up the mag today, read it cover to cover already...and it's great! Although, I don't understand why they included some of the quotes they did.
HOWEVER, This part made me cry:
"During the Joshua Tree tour in 1987 when Bono genuinely feared a bullet from a lunatic after a threat before a gig in LA, the singer assumed it would most likely happen during 'Pride (In the Name of Love)', the song that celebrated Martin Luther King. Crouching down, to sing it, he closed his eyes, When he opened them, he saw his bassist stood between him and the audience."
I love you, Adam Clayton. That is so sweet, saving Bono. Aw.

i guess there were those rumours of a break up because of the comments bono made at the end of the lovetown tour.. but other than that, i think you're right.

Yeah, I got tears in my eyes when I first read about that. It's so moving. It inspired me to be a better person. But it's been so long since then, thanks for reminding me of it! :D
