Learn to spell before you accuse Bono of hanging out with 'dumb' people.
I'm all for open criticism but I really don't get what your point is.

Actually, that was a cheap shot about the spelling. I apologise.
I still don't like the thread much though.

I think Bono has been VERY cool the past year or two. He's done his best tour, some of his best music, and he's done a lot to help the world. So you don't like him hanging with politicians, but better to have them WITH Bono than WITHOUT him, think about that! He can only do good. I don't know what your brand of "COOL" is mister but mine is BONO!

And just why is "New Day" uncool, exactly?

hmmmmmm,

Trying to save a entire continent from self destructing.

Writing songs that go emotionally deeper than his past works. Exposing his vulnerablities and fears.

Exposing himself to different musical styles and artists so he is not locked into a particular "sound"


How is this uncool???


Oh , I think I see, it is uncool because Britney, Fred Durst, Jonathan Davis and others aren't doing the same.

"Be uncool, yes be akward"

YAY for uncoolness

I think it's rather cool to try and help people who are dying in 3rd world countries, but I have always been uncool, and I'm not sure about "dum," but definitely dumb.

So... , what do you think is smart and cool? What does Bono need to do to make his image sexier?

I cringe every moment Bono says' "we are the greatest band in the world"

that is possibly one of the dumbest things lately... and this comes from the fact that I know alot of people that really truelly hate U2 now for being so pompus and even that has changed my point of view on them a bit.

you have to admit there isnt much that is cool about "I am the biggest best, baddest mofo in the world".
if I said it then i would be considered a egotistical idiot.

I actually like "New Day." As far as "What's Going On," I prefer The London Version with Chris Martin. Anyway you look at it, both songs were recorded for a good cause, and I don't think that should be looked down upon. I bet all the Britney Spears fans say the same thing: "She's so uncool for recording a song with Boner from V3 or whatever that dumb Scottish band is!"

Hmmm...i see it as a self confident statement - any singer of any band thinks his band is the best there is. Bono just happens to be one of those people that say it out loud.
And U2 is one of the very few bands that can actually not look arrogant when they say that.

ps: I thought they were pompous with Popmart.

pps: Charity work is always GOOD in any form.

Bono himself has admitted that he is egotistical. In his position, who wouldn't be?

He has said that they are "the best band on the planet" and this doesn't bother me one bit. It's the truth. They ARE, as far as I'm concerned. ESPECIALLY now, when 99.9% of mainstream music is throwaway garbage!

I agree, it bugs me as well. But I can roll off my back in a Lemmings kind of way because I tend to agree with Bono.

Btw - I thought that jacket Bono wore during the grammies two years ago was ugly and uncool.

When Bono gave a speech (I can't remember if it was video taped) for Patti Smith's lifetime achievement award (or something of that nature) at the Q Awards. Patti Smith went to the mic and told Bono to f*** off when she got on stage b/c she thought the speech was in poor taste or something. When one of your idols makes you look like a fool, then you defintely look un-cool.

Yeah, I also thought Bono's speech was a little lame.

Flying FuManchu, what did Bono say?

Speaking of Patti, she was on Dave's show the other night, with no other than "Dancing Barefoot"!!!

I remember hearing about how Patti Smith was pissed off at U2 for covering "Dancing Barefoot." What's her problem?
