If You Could Ask U2 One Question....

So, if you had the chance to put one question to U2 what would it be? Try and think of something other than the pressing issue at present - 'When will Songs of Ascent be out?', but something that has really intrigued you that you'd really love an answer to.

Mine would have to be - what really went on backstage during those Zoo TV days? I'm quite sure Bill Flanaghan's excellent book portrays them in a certain light and I'm willing to bet there was a fair amount of decadence in that 1991-1993 period that they did well to keep underwraps.

If it'll be a question they will HAVE to answer seriously it's an easy one.


Why hasn't Acrobat ever been tried live?


I don't want any bullshit about Edge meditating in a tree, I want the real answer.

i would probably ask them what they'd do if one of the members died.

i'm serious. i've always wondered that. i mean, yes, Bono and Edge are pretty hard to replace. no disrespect to Larry or Adam, but i've always felt that if one of them were to croak early, they probably could find a replacement and keep on trucking.

^Well I think they wouldn't carry on if one of them died (though I really don't like this thought).

I'd ask them what their favourite song is and not the last one they made but just really the one that they think is their best achievement ever.

I'd ask Bono if I can get his daughter's phone number.

Please be sure to have someone take a picture of the exact moment of Bono's fist hitting your face.

Imagine you go to their house to pick up his daughter, and Bono is on the front porch with a shotgun sayin' "Have her home by 10 or else..." Chk chk

I'd ask "If you strip me down and search me and discover I have no wire, no recording technology of any kind, can I please go into the vault of unreleased songs and listen through them all?" Although I doubt there is an actual vault, maybe there is a top secret folder on Edge's laptop.

Or "When is Songs of Ascent coming out?"

I have a lot of questions to ask them, one would be

How come you never played a man and a woman live? (at least on an acoustic set) and thanks for that IGCIIDGCT remix! i'll thank them for that.

If they had some time I think I'd ask them about the history/their thoughts on a b-side or rare song like Walk To The Water or Wild Irish Rose. With any luck I'd hear a neat story about a underrated song.

Okay, here's my question:

How do you continue making such amazing music so "late" in your career after much of the critical press has written you off as The Rolling Stones?

If people are not aware, U2 is planning to invest millions into creating a temporary open air stadium in Montreal for two concerts in July and then have the stadium torn down afterwards. I would love to ask them how and why they came up with this idea and if they are planning to film the concerts.

What really went on backstage during those October days? I'm quite sure Courtney Love's anecdotes portray them in a certain light and I'm willing to bet there was a fair amount of decadence in that 1981-1982 period that they did well to keep underwraps.
