Holy Crap! It was a U2/Flanagan Extravaganza!!!

The last couple of nights, I have found myself watching a lot of VH1. They had the Top 100 Best Rock Moments on TV or something like that, and U2 was mentioned during the part about The Simpsons and Bill Flanagan talked A LOT...About Johnny Cash and others...They showed parts of Live Aid too and I don't remember what else...Bill Flanagan is awesome!

Didn't they show a little bit of Bono in the Frank Sinatra story too?

Last night on VH1 they had the history of rock and roll thing and it was mostly about the british invasion and mowtown. Bono was interviewed and he had blonde hair and a beard. it was taped back in 1995, if i remember correctly it was originally aired on PBS as like a 5 parter because it went from 60's british invasion to like 1995 era music.

Yep! Definitely! That's where my whole "Flanagan is awesome!" thing started.

You know what I find really interesting? I know that the band was a little upset with Carter Alan after he published his book...I guess he had casually mentioned the book to them before but they never really thought it would happen. When it did, they were a little bothered becasue Alan had always presented himself as more of a friend and they felt a little violated somehow...And with Flanagan, the band KNEW that he was writing a book and knew what their relationship was...But Flanagan's book, imho, is so much more personal and insightful than Alan's...Hmmm...

Flanagan's book is much more personal, fun, and really shows what their life is like. (or what we perceive to be, anyway.) Alan's book.. well, let's just say I've had it since early December and I still haven't read the entire thing, but I've read Flanagan's countless times.

I can't type worth a damn, either. That's why I don't go into chat; I have to look at the keyboard, so I miss all of the conversation.
