WTF?!?! U2?
« on: June 02, 2009, 11:53:34 AM »
In the interview on The Late Late Show the host asked the same questions that have appeared on previous interviews. The one about Larry not liking Bono's friends and how do they stay relevant after so many years or how do they deal with Bono's activism. U2's answers are the same as in other interviews. What is going on here? Either people can't find new questions to ask or U2 is reducing their interviews to those topics. WTF?!  >:(

I've had this thought too.  But I think it is b/c U2 hasn't really been taking any risks or moved to any new ground for the last 3 releases.  Compare the conversations around ATYCLB, HTDAAB, NLOTH with the conversations you can have about Achtung Baby, ZooTV, Zooropa, Popmart.   U2 have been playing it safe....musically, lyrically, politically for the 2000's.  I thought Bono was pi**ed off about the world his kids were inheriting.  They've become so much more diplomatic on every level.

The most revealing thing was the questions that they weren't asked. It seems like one obvious topic in particular is off-limits.

maybe, but then there was that "other" question, remember the one he played off back on an interview by laughing it off and stuff

No offense to anybody, but isn't this kind of childish? Can't anyone just say what the question was?

Such a rude question! It's so personal, we don't really need to know! We shouldn't really care anyway! Sheesh.
