But would a bunch of young guys really want to sing and would they resonate with songs written and based on the experiences of a late middle aged man?

Elijah Hewson and his band had their own song and it was very different type of lyrics to that of his dad!

Rick clarifies in the comments:

"By the way, I forgot to say it in the video but this is in no particular order."

Some very idiosyncratic choices.  Lou Gramm ahead of Robert Plant?!  Surely Bono belongs in the top ten, but yes, nice to see him get some recognition.

He may be a pain at times, but he's curious, intelligent, and loyal to a fault I do believe.  Someone like that inspires unconditional love.

God he must be a pain in the ass.

Yes, Iíve sometimes thought about this. He must often be quite insufferable. Yet his friends and family have all stuck by him, which goes to show how much he has going for him on the positive side of the ledger.

General U2 Discussion / Nice to hear Bono get complimented
« Last post by jules on January 08, 2019, 04:57:47 AM »
At a time when I only seem to read hate about Bono it's nice to hear some nice things. When I started watching this video I assumed Bono wouldn't be included - he aint cool enough for the musos! But you could see that the presenter's (Rick's) experience in 1992 had really meant something to him... and this guy *really* knows his stuff about music:

The good stuff is at 11mins but it's worth watching the whole video to get a context of the singers he's comparing Bono to  8)

General Music Discussion / Kind of U2, kind of not...
« Last post by mikegraff on January 07, 2019, 07:41:21 PM »
So, this is kind of U2, but it kind of isn't. 

I just released a collection of lullaby versions of U2 songs under the moniker Lullaby Encore - you can hear the album at You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

This is a gift to my kids (7, 3, and 1), especially my younger two, to give them something peaceful to listen to but also share these amazing U2 songs with them at an early age.

I've been a big fan of lullaby covers for quite some time, for some reason, and although I liked the U2 ones out there, none of them seemed "chill" to me.  So I went ahead and made one of my own.  All appropriate mechanical royalties will be earned by the songwriters/publishers, of course.  :)

I hope those of you with younger kids or grandkids can enjoy this collection.  Feedback is always appreciated.  Thanks!

Hey all!

Just joined @U2, but have been a U2 fan for decades.  I make music full-time and consider U2 to be one of my main all-time influences in many ways.  Been to four shows (all have been great, but need to get to more!).

I also just released a collection of lullaby versions of U2 songs - you can hear them at You are not allowed to view links.

Glad to be here and join the party with all of you!

Yes. If U2 sold their soul and collabed with Niall Horan or Harry Styles, they'd have a big radio hit. gooyow is a melodious tune, like Beautiful Day.

If they gave a single-worthy song to young cutie Elijah Hewson's band... Well idk how easy it is for an almost complete unknown face to break into Ryan Seacrest's top 40.
