my question exactly. Age means...what when it comes to writing good lyrics? Probably that you have more experience to draw on and can write better ones. Oh and since when is 40 "old"?

Amen!

Just look at Bob Dylan! His genius belies age discrimination and continues to be a relevant and important voice in music today.

can he write them?

I don't see why not, although that may just not be his thing anymore

Would I like him to?

Fuck yeah! I love ATYCLB, but as far as lyrics go I prefer not to have them pushed in my face as much as they are on much of the new album... the lyrics on ATYCLB are great, but not on a level with JT or AB. imo.

LMAO at including Elton John in that line-up. And I have to disagree with pretty much every one of those except for Dylan and possibly Lennon.

Bono is one of the best lyricists ever - of course he can write those kind of lyrics. The next album, in my prediction, is going to have amazing lyrics.

Do you think Bono is still capable of writing lyrics like he did in Achtung Baby? And would you like him to go back to those type of lyrics?

I would love to see Achtung Baby type lyrics, and perhaps we will as AB was inspired by relationships and the Gulf War - now that we are in the midst of a new war, perhaps he will channel these emotions into darker lyrics. I don't see it happening though - because he seems truly happy in life and love and might feel that he would be covering old territory by doing so.
