Here We Go Again ....

Below is an extract from an interview Bono did recently with the Australian paper/website The Age.  Bono talked about some rather scary stuff re his back injury, and here's funny quote re his treatment whilst on tour:

Each day on tour, Bono worked with a German physio he refers to as "Hitler's doctor", who would "beat the shit out of me for 45 minutes", and a Finnish practitioner, "the Finnish fondler", who would "work me and try and unbuckle my body".

And then future album plans, you can read the full article here

First Spiderman, now Danger Mouse,  they've done Batman, so maybe the Bionic Man next? No, wait, Bono's the Bionic Man, Made in Germany now isn't he?  I'm giving up getting hot under the collar about some of U2's collaborations/plans.  All I am saying is three things:

1.   U2 is not a club band

2.   Focus

3.   Listen to Adam and Larry

They have spent much of this year working on an album produced by Danger Mouse, the alias for American production ace Brian Burton (Gnarls Barkley, Gorillaz).

Due early next year, it will be preceded by a single in December.

"We have about 12 songs with Danger Mouse," Bono says. "It's the album we'll likely put out next because it's just happening so easily."

The singer adds that, in a stream of creativity, U2 are working on two other projects.

The first is a club-inspired album with Black Eyed Peas rapper, French DJ superstar David Guetta and Lady Gaga collaborator RedOne.

Also, Bono and guitarist The Edge are attempting to sell their bandmates, bassist Adam Clayton and drummer Larry Mullen jnr, the concept of a U2 album based on the 20 songs the two have written for a Spider-man musical that opens on Broadway next month.

  1. I'll just sit back on my sofa and think about something else than U2. The're not the center of my world. If there's still some good music in them I'll give it a listen when it is released, but I gave up listening to their (i.e. Bono's) blabber long ago.
