Bono took a look around the cluttered recording studio, filled with Coke bottles and laptops and vinyl records, and turned to a reporter.
‘I’m not sure where we put the crack pipe,” he deadpanned, pretending to riffle around a coffee table as he also poked at the band’s workaholic image. “We usually leave it out for guests.”
A moment later the U2 frontman had cranked up a track from the band’s work-in-progress April album, an anthemic number about leaving one’s hometown titled “Invisible.” As the song played, he spiritedly played air guitar to it, also belting along with the track’s vocals, so that, in effect, Bono was performing a duet with himself.
