U2 and PJ recorded together?

One of my friends who is a huge PJ fan heard that U2 and PJ went to the studio together in Honolulu together to work on PJ's annual Christmas single.

I'm working on finding a link. I imagine it was just RITFW.

Nice set, though some of PJ fans were complaining that they were only given an hour. As an aside, I stopped for shave ice in Haleiwa earlier in the week and PJ bassist Jeff Ament was there, complaining to a friend about PJ being purely an opening act. (He also said that U2 and PJ had done some studio work together, possibly serving as a fanclub-only release. He also had some not-so-nice things to say about Edge's guitar work on said collaboration...)

Interesting.

But... PJ was an opening act. Did they expect to co-headline, or what?

Whatever

If any of this is true about Jeff Ament, it just solidifies exactly why it is that I dislike Pearl Jam so much.

What did he expect? 2 and a half hours? I'm sure that would have gone over well with the U2 fans.

I saw Ben Harper play before The Flaming Lips once. He played for 2 and a half hours. It wasn't pretty. The Crowd started getting really restless at about the 70 minute mark. That last hour was a long one, with each passing song starting off with a sigh of frustration from the crowd.

A lot of big acts have opened for Bono and the boys (Coldplay, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against The Machine, Oasis, Garbage, No Doubt) and THEY all seemed to be okay with it.

I never thought Pearl Jam's ego could outweigh the Gallagher brothers. Man.

That's strange, I met Jeff in San Jose after U2's last Elevation show there and he absolutely had nothing but great things to say about them, in fact he seemed as every bit of a fan as me. Sure that was 5 years ago, but c'mon are you trying to tell me he was suddenly cold toward them?

I'm not totally buying this...

So some random person claims to have overheard a conversation quite by co-incidence? Woooow, great source right there!

I would imagine there isn't one element of truth in that. I very much doubt in a public place, Jeff Ament of all people would be moaning about being an opening act and slagging off Edge's playing for one and all to hear. People like to stir things up in order to get a reaction. Pearl Jam and U2 have been very good friends since 1992. If Pearl Jam didn't want to be a part of Honolulu, then I'm quite sure they would have said no. The lesson is don't believe everything you read.

Pearl Jam has an ego that outweighs the Gallagher brothers?

Man, you have completely no idea about this band.

Maybe you should check the real stories about the band before trusting a cheap rumour.

PJ played 4-5 more songs when they opened for the Rolling Stones in Pittsburgh last year.

after just listening to Edge be freaking brilliant on the ending solo to "Kite" in Melbourne (thx, youtube), Jeff Ament's opinions will last about as long as shaved ice in July.

Again, what proof is there that Ament said this?
