There really are some fascinating quotes in that book, though. Achtung Baby in particular.

Well, they certainly did accept her list, so I think if they honestly didn't like that, they wouldn't have had it.

Then again ... Achtung Baby's tracklisting, so yeah, who knows.
And ATYCLB's tracklisting.

I actually really enjoyed reading U2 by U2.

Dear Maj.,

I can't believe I got the quote wrong.

Please accept my gift of a giant rabbit to make up for this terrible mistake.

Cheers,
Ax

Bono describes the chorus of Ultraviolet as a "Motown chorus."

I found it fascinating. I love the idea of them looking back at their own work. I wish they'd talked more about their live shows, though.

In all honesty though, I'd never encountered dim sims until I arrived in Australia. And I spent TEN YEARS of my life in Asia. That should explain a lot.
Wow.

I think I've had dim sims once or twice. Don't recall what I thought of it now, but they clearly didn't go on my "eat regularly" list.

Axver describes the opinions of Bono as "daft".

Some of the stories that came out of that book were great, yeah. And yes, that was a bit of a disappointment. I was hoping to learn more about, well, basically all of their shows, but Popmart in particular for some reason, and from what I recall they only really talked about the Sarajevo show.

I actually quite like them, but that's because I don't eat Chinese dumplings as often as I should, and dim sims are the most curious, yet most Australian of "Chinese" foods ever.

So'd I. The early stuff was great. I need to re-read it, as I think there might've been a bit of setlist data to be gleamed.
