Bruce hearts U2__________________
By Sarah Rodman
Not only does Boston love Bruce Springsteen and U2, but they also love each other!
Since these two crazy lovebirds are coming to the Hub for sold-out shows - the Boss plays an intimate acoustic gig tomorrow night at the Orpheum and the Irish quartet pulls into the TD Banknorth Garden for three concerts next week - we took a look at their mutual admiration society by excerpting bits of their respective Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction speeches. Bono did the honors for Bruuuuuce in 1999 and Springsteen returned the favor this year. These two must've made out with the Blarney stone.
The Church of Rock 'n' Roll:
Springsteen on U2: ``A great rock band searches for the same kind of combustible force that fueled the expansion of the universe after the big bang. You want the earth to shake and spit fire. You want the sky to split apart and for God to pour out.''
Bono on Bruce: ``Every great rock group is kind of like starting a religion, and Bruce surrounded himself with fellow believers.''
