Yeah that was cool. Got it on video somewhere. Chris Evans asks Adam "U2's new album (pop) sounds like", Adam replies "Garbage" heheheh. Bono wasn't pleased I think he says something like "Hey man this is the ONE record you were really happening on". It was all in good humour. They made out the whole interview was in the Lemon.

Shame about Chris not being allowed to mention his thoughts in detail about the album once he's heard it....would have really loved to hear his opinion on it.

Chris was great back in the day, really innovative TV at the time - TFI was a classic - the U2 episode was amazing - I remember Chris Evans being at PopMart - there was a bit when they were allowed in and they mucked about with the giant screen - I seem to remember some kind of toy being filmed on a spring???

102.1 the Edge

I think his show comes on at 7pm ET (-5 GMT), at least thats when he was on yesterday. Should be streamed from that website. He did mention that he wanted to get Lanois on soon, so if he already interviewed Lanois, he will air it today.

maybe because he was in his natural habitat then?

The show was also filmed in a bar so had quite a relaxed feel about it - most of the guests just seemed to be more normal on it.

I think this mad grandiose persona of his comes out on stage or in front of large live audiences on TV

Yep he was definetly pretty cool back then. Still makes me laugh at his reaction when Adam says pop sounds like garbage.

He's going to be talking about the album in a few minutes time for anybody who wants to listen.

BBC - Radio 2 - Chris Evans

can't believe I've never seen this. Bono sounds so different - both his voice and his accent.
so laid back, all of them!

as he says it:

Listened to the U2 album today (he says it's not finished - can't understand why?)
was ushered in
board room universal music with 2 others
given banana and fruit tea
he's not allowed to say anything about the album
says it's brilliant
the best thing they've ever done
but whispered
big plans for U2
huge stuff
one includes Radio 2
for the new album
which is amazing
when it finished ..
he asked for them to play it again and they did.
