says that the band has remained true to their punk roots, it's a load of garbage

Umm, I tend to recall Bono's quotes as being "We came out of punk" before he goes on to say that U2 wanted something different/more. He's never hidden the fact that U2 wanted to be huge from the day they were formed. He was talking that way even after the Dandelion Market gigs:

If Bono's talking about staying true to his punk roots, he's probably referring to the fact that he still can't play guitar. ;-)

The Dandelion Market gigs are the ones which had Bono wearing the checkered pants and sleeveless mesh shirt, right? Gotta love some of U2's early fashion sense, or lack there of ;D

P.S. i just wanna add, I would LOVE to see both Bono and Mac together taking a "blood test" similar to John Carpenter's version of The Thing(which is from also 1982, ironically).

They could revisit one of the cold shooting locations from either The Cutter or New Year's Day video. They'd be like tied down by Larry to a sofa like in the film with their blood samples in petri dishes. Instead of Kurt Russell, you'd have The Edge standing there, a safe distance away, with the flamethrower strapped on(since he's always on fire), and wearing Kurt's sombrero. He'd be heating up the copper wire, and an uncertain Mac would look at him and say "Let's do this". Bono would have a slight grin on his face. Everyone holds their breath as Edge puts the hot wire in Bono's petri dish and it would EXPLODE with the reaction of Bono's blood to the wire. It is then when Bono transforms into what Mac knew he was all along: The Thing. Larry would yell "Torch Him!", and then all Bono's comments about Edge being on fire will finally come back to burn him! But not before giving Mac The Mouth a huge hug and to make sure he is taken out too.

It could all be filmed by Anton Corbijn.

Is this what Mac had in mind?

One of the most awesome things i've ever read on this forum.

Hey thanks Jamie, much appreciated! 8) After I posted it I immediately wondered if anyone would get the reference, but if just one person enjoyed it or got what I was on about then it's worth it

Two people got the quote!! Im a huge John Carpenter fan and it was indeed a good post!! I would love to hear Bonos comments bout Rollins though.. he clearly HATES Bono. Didnt Bono once sit in the audeince at one of his stand ups? Is that rumour true?

Great post, man. I love that movie. The prequel is no good, though.

Back on the punk thing, I believe the band always told they were coming from the punk movement, inspired by some of its aspects (and artists). But I don't think they've ever described themselves as punks ?

I like The Killing Moon very much, but i think it's the only song that is remembered of Ian's band. So, everything he says against Bono is really out of pure envy. Where is he now?his band? U2 and Bono are still very much alive and kicking. I feel really sorry for Ian. He'll die envying Bono and pitying himself. He's like a rabid dog already.

He has been having a go at Bono for years and years now. It got old long ago, he sounds so bitter

It does make for a good dog and pony show though. Fanboys on both sides get to go ape crap on the other side thus keeping both of them in the public eye without actually doing much damage to either side.

Rollins is really the only one who I pay attention to when he criticizes Bono because sometimes I agree with it.

U2 and Echo and The Bunnymen were once contemporaries in their early days. U2 found global fame and fortune, The Bunnymen didn't, simple case of sour grapes.

Well, maybe he should enjoy some wine instead of vinegar!
