Eli Hewson’s Band in Name Dispute
« on: July 08, 2018, 06:34:07 PM »
Evidently there is an English band also named Inhaler who say they had the name first. There’s apparently another rock band in North America also called Inhaler.

Personally I don’t know why so many bands chose Inhaler cause I think it’s lame and generic sounding. I think Eli’s band could do better.

I agree; it's a rather dumb name for a band.  Reminds me of wheezing.

Bono needs to be like Gene Simmons and give his son a band name that he always owns the copyright for.  Hhaha- no, that is a joke.

Bono said on, I think it was Ellen DeGeneres, that Eli's band are called what they are because he [Eli] suffers from asthma.

Well, Weezer did well enough...

You have a point.

For me, instead of making me think of asthma, this name brings to mind drug jokes. Yes, we inhale!

if they had to change it...rather than 'Exhaler', they could always use a (not quite as catchy) 'Breathe In' from the MRI sounds/instructions.

I didn't realize the kid suffered from asthma.  Sheesh--now I feel bad for pointing out the wheezing thing.  Well, maybe it's a meaningful name, for him.  It still does nothing for me though.

I'm only going on what Bono said....and that was the 'reason' they gave that name to the band.
 
With regard to the other interpretation of the name of Eli's band, I would like to think that somehow Bono has had 'the drugs chat' with his sons....we know that Bono has spoken out in a round-about way against drugs in the past (some of it fairly recently)….you have to listen a little hard to hear it, but the message is there.

Whether Bono experimented in the past is neither here or there in this thread - it's about what advice he may have given to his children and I imagine it's of the 'don't do it' variety.

I’m not saying they actually meant it as a drug joke, it’s just what pops into my head. It’s a Clinton era reference so it probably wouldn’t even occur to teenagers.
