In that, I received a call from Dallas yesterday. He called to thank me for the shirt that I gave him at LA 3. Class act, that Dallas.

We talked about the tour and some gear things. Dallas has been super happy with the success of the SDD3000 pedal -- as a part of Edge's rig and as far as the sales to the general public; it's sold quite well.

I'd asked him about the Love Town era Clapton Strats. He said that Clapton's tech turned them on to them. They ran them through the paces during Love Town but it wasn't what they wanted in the end and hence, other than brief appearances on ZOO TV, they've not been seen again. Edge signed and gave Dallas the red Clapton.

It was super cool for Dallas to take the time to call. It was most appreciated. I look forward to another chat down the line/along the tour at some point.

Apparently at least Edge and Bono are really putting an effort to finish the upcoming album.

Song ideas often start with The Edge. And he's not one to sit around during a tour. So that isn't to say that Bono, Larry and/or Adam aren't interested or don't contribute.

From the sound of the interview, the material is more Volcano, less Every Breaking Wave. SOI is a great record but after hearing the extensive talk of Songs of Ascent being an ambient sort of album, it's great to hear that they are going for the bigger sounds for Songs of Experience.

Great interviews, thanks for posting. Dallas is one of the coolest guys ever. Had a drink with him several years back, actually several of us did, he was a very nice and down to earth guy.

The story about him bringing people into the show was very

I like the idea that Sofe is going to hopefully be more rocking than Sofi

Actually the last half of Sofi is nearly perfect, so holding out to hope that the sugar & honey is left off of Sofe.

I first met Dallas back during the ZooTV tour. The signs (and later shirts) started during that tour. It has carried on to the present tour.

I've gotten to speak with him before and after shows over the years. He called me after the Pasadena show on 360 -- to thank me for the 360 shirt I'd given him at 360 PHX show.

He told me he was going to frame the new shirt, as it was related to the successful Korg SDD 3000 Pedal. So that's pretty cool too.

Long story short, he's always been a gentleman - kind to the fans - kind to me... Which is a great thing. And as most that have been to show can attest - both the band and crew are all pretty cool down-to-earth folks.

He really is he sweetest guy. No reflected fame ego going on, just super awesome dude who has a very obvious love of the instrument and his job. I've had the pleasure of chatting to him once or twice.

So they should go back and only use old producers?

I like SOI. I am glad they are trying new idea.

Like the idea as well, though I am afraid of them losing focus.

Danger Mouse work on SOI is among the best U2 delivered since Pop. I also agree... the 2nd half of SOI is perfect.
