"Edge has got to restring his guitars."


How can you not Bono.

Great quirk from Bono!!



Just read the comment there:

"Because they are old and no one wants to buy their music anymore, except other old people, and they are too cheap to fork over for hard CD's."

Clearly he hasn't read this thread:

I'm 21, I should probably be checking out old folk homes before my 23rd birthday.

That reminds me, I need to cash my pension cheque on Wednesday

Why U2 Hasn't Made a New Album in Years

As seen on TMZ

http://www.tmz.com/2007/10/01/why-u2-hasnt-made-a-new-album-in-years/

TMZ caught up with half of U2 over the weekend, and we may have gotten the scoop as to why the band hasn't produced a new album since 2004's "How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb." Bono's terse but perfectly rational answer: "Edge has got to restring his guitars."

Judging from the rather giddy laughter that followed his answer, it's also possible that Bono was just joking, or speaking some wink-winky language only understood by Irish musicians.

As ever, The Edge -- David Howell Evans himself -- who joined Bono at the Clinton Global Initiative event, had very little to say about the matter.

Cut and paste it! It looks like TMZ is one of those sites that doesn't let you hot link.

(Que Lastima! - what a pity)

http://www.tmz.com/2007/10/01/why-u2...lbum-in-years/

But I cut and pasted the entire article, so there's no need to go to the site (unless you need to see it for yourself)

Finally! Bono & Edge address the new album, and what's taking so long!

That quick wit always keeps us on their toes.

Scrolled thru some of the comments, WHAT A MISTAKE. What is it with a lot of the posters on TMZ- they really are an angry, miserable bunch. They don't even deserve a response.

Thanks a lot! Yes, I know you posted the whole article (I still cannot believe the band actually made it to that site), but without going there we wouldn't be able to read all of those WONDERFUL comments.

Yep, some of the comments were tough (not surprising), but many of them were actually quite nice.

"Because Bozo err I mean Bono, has been too busy looking for more lame sunglasses. The glasses are non-prescription. He does it just because he thinks it looks cool.

Come on bro, you're two birthdays away from Keith Richards... Even he don't wear plastic post-cataract surgery AARP issue shades."

The comments are breaking my brain.

good one, restring the guitar.

Interesting comment no. 57. I don't think the reply was that serious but good idea, anyway.

And humor is (the) key (of the songs/music).
