Thank you so much for posting that link, Ancalagon! I had never read that interview, though I'd heard about it before. I printed it out (30 pages!) and read it today-- excellent interview!!

Thanks, again!

Have you ever slept in the open?

ADAM: Yeah, quite often actually. Well, I once slept on a roundabout in London in Camden, no sorry not as glamorous as Camden, it was Catford. I'd been to see Thin Lizzy play the Wembley Arena in their 'Live and Dangerous tour' so it would have been about '76. This time I'd been in the West End in a few clubs and didn't have any money to get home so I started walking. And I just walked as far as I could go before I fell asleep and I chose a roundabout and woke up at rush hour. It was a bit disorienting because I couldn't find my glasses so all I knew was I was on this patch of green and there were cars driving round me, so it was a bit of a strange way to wake up. 1992/3

"If you were to file us under anything in the record shop, I suppose it would have to be under 'rock'. But I think it's a very false divide. 'Rock' and 'Pop' cross over in so many places that I don't think you can put bands in neat little boxes like that." (February 1983)

***

It's amazing to see somebody who you basically grew up with at school and who you've been in a band with for 25 years going to the White House," says bassist Adam Clayton..."That's what we all signed up for. What excited us at 16 or 17 was punk, and the reason that turned us on was because (we were) angry about wanting things to change, that frustration. And that's still a part of what we are ...

"Bono gets around. But I think it's the U2 audience that he ultimately carries to those sorts of things, and our fans are very intelligent, they're very proactive, they're very committed."

"It's a trade and, I think, what's unique about Bono is that he's been very successful at speaking the language of politicians and knowing the numbers and knowing the arguments and making great records, as well,"-2005 (Excerpts from same article)

***

Edge is looking at his handheld computer to check on the weather forecast.
'Apparently it's raining now! ' he says.
'Yes,' says Adam, with a grin. 'Have you looked outside Edge?-2004

"In fact, I wonder if even the threats of reduced equity are really tough-love discipline, a way to say to any of [them], 'There's a price for letting the family down.' My analysis is interupted by a sharp pain across my right ear. I turn and look over the airplane seat and see a laughing Adam several rows back, shooting rubber bands."--Bill Flanagan.

***

"Radio should be stimulating people rather than actually killing them into a state of apathy, which I think has happened. Again, it goes back to this thing of partitioning music. People, particularly the youth, which are the lifeblood of any country, are stagnating because they have no stimulus. There's nothing challenging for them to get their teeth into. I think that's a terrible shame."

Thanks, Ralphie, that's interesting. I wonder if it's because of the Tripod pop-ups?

30 pages??? No wonder it took so long to transcribe! LOL. Glad you guys are enjoying the interview.

I found these at ancatdubh.org

"I certainly like looking at the Spice Girls."
Being a typical male.
***
"Be careful what you set your sights upon because it just might happen."
Wise words.
***
"And if it doesn't work, we'll just blame Eno."
On excuses.
***
"I think if you're going to get into rock and roll you've got to be perfectly sure that from that day you start doing it, you know what you want and where you're going."
On determination.
***
"Nobody knows how it works. You turn the music up as loud as you can and hope people like it."
Explaining success.
***
"I just wasn't prepared for the establishment to write me off just because I didn't fit into their academic concept."
Expressing his animosity with the educational system.
***
"Y’know, we go to night clubs, we’re always hearing and seeing the best everywhere around the world and you kind of bring that home with you and we just sorta felt that, y’know, we could do a club that was exciting and interesting to people and had a broad music policy. I suppose it’s just because we want to go to our own place rather than roam around the city."
Why everyone should own their own night club.
