as a musician but more as a human being i recognize what the Edge is doing and as long as the people that his program has touched have his name in their heads thats what matters. Not everybody is a Zooropean..and not everyone has to be, but as long as I myself can recognize and admire a single person I don't care what the world outside or what the media thinks. The point is there are always critics and haters...and behind that is a worldwide group of U2 fans who still want to sell out all their concerts and praise them for touching their lives. So in my heart, and my chords, I still have Bono Edge Adam and Larry on my mind as my inspiration for doing what I do and giving me the inspiration to find my talent and find my calling.

I see nothing wrong with having an organization designed to give specific things. What's the alternative? Donations pour in to some sort of general fund and who decides what it gets spent on?

Sometimes I'd rather give my money to an organization where I know what the money will be going for. I'd be pissed if I found out my donations to help Katrina victims went into rebuilding a sports arena.

But anyway. I do not see any reason to knock any organization or person who is honestly working to help someone else, no matter how specific or small that help may be.

No one knows who the rest of the band is unless you're into music, and you barely know the drummer & bassist unless you're into the band. If the band is really famous, you know the singer & the lead guitar. I bet there are dozens of people on here who can't tell me who the rest of the Rolling Stones are besides Mick & Keith. Besides Steven Tyler, who else is in Aerosmith? Sure, a bunch of us know--but we're all on a band forum. Regular old people who don't give a rat's ass about music can't tell you. How many people in the world can really tell you who on earth Larry Mullen Junior & Adam Clayton are?

To the world, the lead singer is the figurehead of the band.


All that said, I think that U2 in general is a bit overexposed at the moment.
When I first joined this forum, Live8 was just finished, and I realised that Larry was the drummer, not the bass guiatrist, and vice versa with Adam.

I laughed last night when they said....
"Bono, The Edge, and U2 will be here!"
