Waiting For God .....
Bono was recently on Letterman TV show in the US and when asked about the new album this and below is what he said:
“You know Quincy Jones said to me ‘Bono, you’ve got to wait for God to walk through the room’ and I said ‘Q, why is God so unreliable in the music department’. And he said ‘Just to teach you to wait’, so we are waiting,” Bono said.
“We have a deal with our audience, they give us a great life and they expect us to be great and that’s tricky,” Bono said. “As you get better you get very good and very good is kind of the enemy of great. You can mistake it for great. People don’t get excited about us being very good. Who needs a new U2 album? There are loads of them out there. We have to make a great U2 album and they don’t care waiting as long as it’s great”.
Personally, I think it's bollocks and its starting to get booooooring. But this made me laugh, us U2 fans have to have a sense of humour and shedloads of patience.
