I know.

(I hope he said, "happy birthday Bono. Anyway..." )

Don't know if Eve's expecting, but Blue is due in July. Hollie's even posted pics on her instagram of them hanging out and you can clearly see the bump. (Some sites mistakenly reported Hollie being preggers since it was her instagram, whoops).

Edge being a grandpa is hilarious and adorable all at once.

I can only IMAGINE what Bono would be like.

I can't wait for Bono to be calling Edge "Grandpa" all night on the tour.

Best part of the Vegas deal is free clothes for Bono. He needs new clothes and a new language

Got an e-mail from Bono via ONE today:

Quote:
A lot has changed in a decade.

10 years ago, Facebook existed on a computer in a college dorm. There were no tweets, hashtags or iPhones. The only people occupying Wall Street wore suits and the Tea Party had a colonial Boston accent. And ONE was but a few.

It was started mainly because, truth be told, Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu asked us to. And really... who says no to the two of them?

What was needed, they felt, was a demonstration of support for the world’s poorest... citizens around the globe standing in solidarity with one another and calling on leaders to do more of what helped and less of what hurt the most vulnerable people on the planet.

And so, ONE was born.

A few of us gathered near the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia to launch a campaign to lift millions out of poverty. We knew each person could make a difference, but we believed that if we worked together as ONE - we could change the world.

10 years later, I am blown away by what you've accomplished, by working together across continents and ideologies, and by holding tight to the belief that the fight against poverty isn’t about charity, but about justice and equality.

And you got busy. Watch this. Spread it. Share it. Pass it on.

Debt relief for dozens of countries in Africa that helped put an extra 54 million kids in school. Aid made more effective and accountable. Tough laws passed to help ensure the oil, gas and minerals under the ground in poor countries aren’t stolen from the people living above them. 7.5 million people in Africa are thriving on ARVs; malaria death rates have been cut in half in 13 countries across the continent. Political leaders from left, right and centre hit with calls, letters, town hall meetings and tweets and forced to take a stand on the fight against extreme poverty.

ONE’s tagline is one of the few things that has stayed the same: “We’re not asking for your money. We’re asking for your voice.” So today, ten years on, we want to thank you for using your voice - whether through a click, an email, a letter, a phone call, a conversation, a demonstration, a sit-in, a stand-up...

Your voices together - that has made all the difference.

Thank you.

Bono

Few guitar makers can claim the same perch in the rock music pantheon as Fender, whose Stratocasters and Telecasters have been favored by musicians as diverse as Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain.

Now Fender, in the middle of a revival and expansion effort, is turning to two prominent musicians for help.

The company plans on Thursday to name Bono and the Edge from U2 to its board, both brought in by Fender’s majority owner, TPG Growth. Their challenge is to help Fender, which is 68 years old, thrive in a digital age, when Spotify is a more prominent music brand than the Strat.

“I believe that guitars are here to stay and, far from digital technology being their death knell, I think it throws up some new ways to power creativity and give people greater access to the huge potential of the electric guitar,” the Edge wrote in an email from the studio where the band is recording its next album.

cool

Egde has often talked about the pontential of the EG.....
and I think his sonic work with effects- that some dismiss as not real EG "chops"- is highly part of the game

bonohas been occasionally playhing a EG and of course listening to this stuff from Edge for decades "in the trenches" so to speak has his own insights .

I like it LOTS!

and loves hervery own Squire (Fender) startocaster

Alright, when there's no real news to report, why not report Bono's lunch habits

U2's Bono enjoys a bowl of chowder and a pint while out with his son in the Gaeltacht - Independent.ie

Every time I read a U2-related article, and the writer ponders whether so-and-so has "found what they're looking for," I think to myself... are they trying to annoy me? Or do they genuinely believe they're being clever?

A little from column A, little from column B.
