Funny U2 Quotes..... @ 01:40 am

u2pearljamchick:
I'm currently feelin: giddy giddy

BP: Is Elvis alive or dead?
ADAM: Elvis is alive.
BP: Have you ever seen him?
ADAM: I see him every day.
BP: Is he in the band?
ADAM: He thinks he is.

Larry Mullen Jr: a man so handsome he will never sing lead for this band - Bono


Q: If the four of you were in a fight, I mean a truly tough brawl, which one of you would kick the other three's asses? (NME interview, 2001)

Larry: Bono
Adam: Bono
Edge: Bono
Bono: Me


"I just passed Adam, I said, Adam, you're 40, do you have anything to say? And he said, obscurely, How long do I have to sing this song?" - Bono, in the YahooChat, 12 March 2000


"Bass players get the weirdest fans. I tend to get the bespectacled M.I.T. students. Bono gets the poets. And Larry, unfortunately, gets the girls. We should have gotten a Ringo." (Edge, U2 at the End of the World, Bill Flanagan, 1995)

Thanks for some great quotes and a wonderful photo. :) One of these days I'll dig out my old magazines from the 80s and see if I can come up with something entertaining for you guys. :)

Hey cool! I have some 80's Rolling Stone Mags, but always looking for other 80' pics of them! If you can scan some that would be great! ;)

I used to bear a faint resemblance to that picture and others of POP Bono, depending on the angle.

Scannable stuff?

What I had in mind were photos from a Joshua Tree era issue of Star Hits and the "Rock's Hottest Ticket" issue of TIME. Today I also unearthed a book from 1989 that I forgot I had, Three Chords And The Truth by Niall Stokes and the editors of Hot Press. Being a teenager who didn't think far ahead, I clipped out a lot of things from my 80s magazines and I don't know what happened to them, even though I still have the magazines, d'oh! Most of my magazines are from the early 90s, though (Q, Musician, Spin, Rolling Stone). The daily paper and the weekly alternarag in Charlotte, NC ran articles on U2 at the time of ZooTV, and I kept most of those clippings too. Also, I've got a Mondo2000 that contains an interview with Edge and the guys from Negativland, but there are no pictures - only illustrations. I've got a promo b&w from a press kit for the Greenpeace Alternative N.R.G. compilation and a promo b&w photo from the Zooropa press kit. I may still have more packed away either here or at my parents' house. Someone might have already posted some of these pictures, I can't remember at the moment. If anyone wants me to scan any of these things, I'd be happy to do so, once I get my scanner hooked up again. :)

All right, I'm still in the midst of unpacking loads of stuff (moved about a month ago, but I'm a slacker). Hopefully by the end of the week I'll find the cables for the scanner. The pictures will be scanned in as soon as I do that. :)
