What’s U2 up to right now? Edge was in Sacramento on September 3, which must mean he plans to disrupt the California Senate race by announcing his last-minute candidacy (move over, Kamala Harris). No seriously, if you know of any other reason why Edge would be in my state capital, speak up! He never ceases […]Read More
September 25: A Beautiful Day?
Was September 25 the date Larry posted the notice at the school, or was it the date of U2’s first meeting in his kitchen? *(Answer below). More importantly, will it be the date U2 releases Songs of Experience? That’s the question some of us are asking as we wait on a bed of nails for […]Read More
What’s Happening with SOE?
No Bono, no peace sign! We have no chill right now. We’re on the edge over here, and not the kind that’s named David Evans. It’s the kind of edge you reach when you know U2 is oh-so-close to releasing their new album. I have a theory and an estimation to share. If the band’s […]Read More
U2’s Summer of Busting their Ass
It’s not over yet, is it? Remember, “we’re busting our ass” is straight from The Edge’s mouth (otherwise, I probably wouldn’t title a blog post that way). That was about two weeks ago when the band was all together in LA recording, working with Skrillex and talking about new instruments. This week, it looks like Edge is in […]Read More
There Was No New U2 Single Today. So Here’s This.
Like most of you, I thought something big was going to happen today. It didn’t, which really sucks because we could all use some good U2 news right now. So instead of something that excitedly recaps the unveiling of a new single, I give you this little piece of sillyness. I dare you to google […]Read More
Thank You, Ryan Tedder! Love, U2 Fans
Thanks to Ryan Tedder’s hearty endorsement of the progress happening on Songs of Experience, U2 fans are talking about ATYCLB again. That’s All That You Can’t Leave Behind, the 2000 release that – as I say often – was the album that helped the world fall back in love with U2. Do you agree with […]Read More
Happy Bono’s Birthday!
If you’re in Europe, Bono’s birthday was yesterday. If you’re in the U.S., Bono’s birthday was today. So here’s a brain teaser: If Bono, who lives in Europe, was in the U.S. today (and we believe he was)…then did he celebrate his birthday yesterday or today? Hmmmm… Every year, Bono’s birthday is marked by a […]Read More
U2 and Prince – Their Crossover Connections
Which U2 song sounds the most like Prince? That’s hard to say, because Prince had so many “sounds” that it would be almost impossible to pin him down to a single musical style. Who else does that remind you of? Yep! That’s just one of the many crossovers we can find when comparing U2 with […]Read More
U2 on iHeart Radio Awards: Innovators Indeed
Let’s do some freeform discussion on the iHeart Radio Awards, shall we? No? Okay, how about just U2’s part? Fair enough. We all know U2 deserved to win the Innovator Award at the iHeart Radio Awards – but did anyone else? (Besides Pharrell Williams, I mean.) If you watched it, you may have asked yourself, […]Read More
Happy St. Patrick’s Day, U2 Fans!
Let’s be honest: There’s no better day of the year to annoy our non-U2 friends on social media by inundating them with U2 lyrics, photos, videos, homemade memes with cheesy shamrock borders around Bono’s face and the like. If you haven’t done it yet, I highly encourage you to take the next few minutes to […]Read More
