U2 & “Deflate-gate!”

My good friend Danielson checked in with me this week wondering what all the “Hoopla” was about the Patriots and their deflated balls? (Go ahead and try to say that phrase without laughing) Then, young Daniel made a brilliant analogy and compared “Deflate-gate” to being a U2 fan. Mind officially blown! The connection is not too far off. People, far and wide who aren’t even football fans joined in on the mob mentality and began stomping more air out of the story than what was really there, know any band that just went through a similar situation back in September with a certain album release? It was as…

Why U2? #48 – The Whole is Greater Than the Sum of its Parts

Earlier this week, I was listening to a band who isn’t U2, (I’m not going to say who because this isn’t about tearing anyone down), and I remembered reading about how the particular record I was spinning was recorded with each band member recording their parts separately, in different studios in different parts of the country. “What an impersonal way to make music!” I thought, which seems to be a real shame because there’s nothing more personal than music, and recording it with someone should be an intimate experience that joins two souls together. Of course, this kind of thing…

Par for the Course!

FORE! By now, you’ve heard about the Irish nut job with the golf club that was arrested on Larry Mullen Jr’s property a few months back and now found guilty. Anyone know where Rory Mcilroy, the World’s number one golfer was when all this went down? Anyhow, golf is a great game and U2 has referenced many golf terms numerous times, sometimes subtly, over the last three decades and nobody even noticed….until now. Here are a list of golf terms used by U2 and where you could find them. Birdie- See the bird with the leaf in her mouth. (Beautiful Day) Hole- God shaped hole….

Know Your Bonoisms, Part 21: Would Bono Do a Reality Show?

That’s a big NO. I read that he was asked that once and answered in the negative, but if you Google “Bono reality show” now, you’ll find nothing but a full page of Chaz Bono reality show stories. But trust me on this: He won’t do it. Regardless, it’s fun to imagine the potential titles and possible show premises: “Being Bono” – In this groundbreaking season of unscripted television, we would watch our guy maintain the delicate balance between Bono the Lead Singer of U2 and Bono the Global Diplomat. In those moments when the band can’t avoid the cameras, Edge would be…
