A black U2??

Since the boys are indeed working with Rick Rubin, who has also been associated with some rnb or even hiphop artists by producing their records, have you ever thought of U2 mixing it wih some hiphop or rap flavor??? lol.....

even if not, might be interesting to conceive them playing with some rnb or rap or hiphop stars (what do they actually call this kind of music anyway? psshhh )

sorry, just got this when i was listening to linkinpark/jay-z collabo. bad morning, I know

Black music, that's it. that's what they call it!!
A black U2?

i know!

as much as I love u2, i don't see why they allow their works of art to be ruined by musicians from a different genre,,,,

its like asking alex ferguson to pick the chelsea line up....

Bono has always been open about his spiritual and musical debt to African Americans.

He shared snippets of West's "Jesus Walks" onstage late last year, and he has even said that rap might influence the next record.

Punk, which was born around the time of hip-hop, shares a lot of similarities with rap, and I think that if the Rubin collaboration holds water all the way to another record, then these influences will be strong on the new record.

Has history taught us that any influences the band integrate come out sounds like "U2"? Electroica, punk rock from venus etc. I'm all for them experiementing but it usually comes out more like a change in the packaging rather than the substance. That said some packaging ends up looking better than others....

Oh of course, since every artist associated with Rick Rubin makes black music.

Red Hot Chili Peppers
Johnny Cash
Neil Diamond
Audioslave
Tool
Weezer
The Beastie Boys

the list goes on...

Supposedly, many of the vibes in AB were inspired by R&B. Think MW, even One. The story is that the band used to hitchhike a lot for fun on the JT tour. I think the story (which I believe is in Flanagan's book) goes that Bono & Edge were riding in a car with a random guy who had been blasting hiphop on his stero system. It knocked their socks off. Then the guy realized who they were, put a U2 tape in, and Bono and Edge were floored at how much their sound paled in comparison on this car's giant speaker system.
