Never really found them that grand, just my opinion - just of a different era. I can only imagine how much of a mindfuck they must have been back in their day, but from my own point of view, my interest in them only really stretches to snippets in U2 gigs and covers etc. Just never felt any kind of urge to check them out - couple of my uni. mates are into them, but what they've played me never grabbed my interest. Anyway, back to topic:
Just listened my way through most of Zooropa whilst having a mini-workout before bed. My god I love this album.
"I don't think I've ever come home from a tour the same person I left, so there is always a moment where the people you come home to wonder if you're going to get on with them. Or if they even want you in the house."
- Bono, 1990
did you know
Pride (In The Name Of Love) came out of a soundcheck in Hawaii, the melody and the chords. Which is also the place where the work on the album (The Unforgettable Fire) started.
