General U2 Discussion / Re: Bono play'n guitar again?
« Last post by spacemonkey on April 18, 2018, 01:46:51 AM »
He said this in RS last May:

To switch gears, are you still unable to play guitar?
Yeah. I can play sitting down if the neck is pointing up in the air, and I can play with three fingers standing up. Dallas Schoo, Edge's guitar tech, is encouraging me to pick up slide guitar.

He had nerve damage in his hand and, I think, his last two fingers and by the sounds of this, it's still there in part. IDK, I doubt we'll see him with a guitar again, but you never know ;)

Seems this is now a SBS thread. Agree it could do with not being in the setlist for this tour. Is a great song though. The R&H version is what hooked me on U2. The energy and passion in that performance really got to me so will always have a soft spot for SBS.

I mean, it looks really old now.  Also, I'm sure that strip clubs haven't changed much, it's just society has moved past treating women so poorly as this video does.

Yeah, it's rock music, so what?  It's not the tools but how you use them.  For me, this is the exact opposite of what U2 is.  U2 is emotion and atmosphere.  It's about revealing yourself without shame and celebrating honesty.  This is dull, horny nonsense.  It's not even fun, just trashy and gross.  The band is playing nothing memorable or special at all, same old soft metal noise, and the singer sucks, especially live.  Sorry to trash it so hard, but I really don't like Motley Crue at all.

Anyone speculate if our boy Bono surprises us and plays guitar again? Really miss seeing him with his green Gretsch Irish Falcon.

I can't bring myself to watch the video. I'm afraid of the amount of cringe that will be present.

I had an experience in my college class where I learned that several fellow classmates had no idea what Rock 'N Roll was... I still have a bit of PTSD from that situation. So anything involving college kids and music of the past brings about a bit of fear for the state of my peers. I don't know how people my age can be so clueless... Did none of their parents listen to rock music?

Wow, not knowing what rock music is. Now that is a shocking cultural shift.

I still don't understand why kids of today have to like or know rock music?   Every generation creates new sound and music, remember all that electronic pop stuff in the eighties, I try and forget that along with the fashion lol.  There is ongoing cultural shift.  Swing, dance hall, big band gave way to early rock n roll in the mid fifties, I am sure that was considered a shocking cultural shift at the time moving into the sixties lol.

First off, I'd just like to say that 80s music, movies and fashion, every style and genre is superior to anything that came before or after.



Haha I enjoyed it when I was living it but I look back at my permed big hair and shoulder pads and I still have a good laugh.
