So where are they?

In regards to their 8 nominations...

The group's four members were "thrilled and really excited, and not at all blase,'' U2 manager Paul McGuinness told Reuters from the band's Dublin base after he tracked them down across Europe to break the good news. "There's a lot of very distinguished records on this list.''
All I wanna know is...so where are they hanging out these days? I thought they were in Dublin. lol.

Anyways, I thought that sounded rather cute. Paul McG tracking down his baby band (not anymore!) down to give them the good news.

Don't you guys subscribe to the BonoLocator? His wife has implanted a transponder and a GPS system in his head so he can be located instantly, 24/7.

Paul uses it all the time to track him down. You can subscribe to an online version of the service at:

This story tells it all:

[Paul McGuinness confirms the band will perform at the Grammy Awards and
mentions the possibility of a European Tour this year. ]


Irish Band U2, Soul Divas Lead Grammy Nominations
January 4, 2002

By Dean Goodman


LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Irish rock band U2, which enjoyed a triumphant 2001
playing to sold-out crowds in support of its acclaimed new album, led the
list of nominees on Friday for the Grammy Awards, the music industry's top
prizes.

U2 picked up eight nominations, including the key album, song and record of
the year categories, organizers announced at a news conference in Beverly
Hills.

The group's four members were ``thrilled and really excited, and not at all
blase,'' U2 manager Paul McGuinness told Reuters from the band's Dublin base
after he tracked them down across Europe to break the good news. ``There's a
lot of very distinguished records on this list.''

In a field largely devoid of the controversy that dogged the 2001 Grammys
when badboy rapper Eminem grabbed all the attention, soulful newcomers India
Arie, 26, and Alicia Keys, 20, received seven and six nods each,
respectively.

Classical conductor and composer Pierre Boulez, who already has 23 Grammys,
also picked up six nominations. Among the acts with five nominations were
bluegrass musician Alison Krauss, R&B singer Brian McKnight and R&B duo
Outkast.

Five artists received four nominations each: producer T-Bone Burnett,
Canadian pop singer Nelly Furtado, rock band Train, Aerosmith singer Steven
Tyler and country-rocker Lucinda Williams.

Tireless troubadour Bob Dylan was among the many acts to score three
nominations, including album of the year for his acclaimed ``Love and
Theft,'' the 43rd release of his career.

Arie and Keys will compete against each other in six races, including best
new artist, a closely watched category that also includes pop singers David
Gray and Furtado and rock band Linkin Park. Grammy winners will be announced
during ceremonies on Feb. 27 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

SONGWRITING BACK IN STYLE

The awards, which honor artists in 101 categories, ranging from pop, rock
and soul to classical, spoken word and polka, appeared to favor acclaimed
singer/songwriters over disposable acts whose songs are written for them by
producers. All the contenders for the song of the year category, which
honors the songwriter, performed their own tunes.

``If we can get back to the great singer/songwriters, music will just
improve overnight,'' said Stevie Nicks, a Grammy nominee in the female rock
vocal category.

U2's mournful ``Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of,'' a tribute to
Australian rocker Michael Hutchence who killed himself in 1997, will compete
for song of the year against Arie's ``Video,'' Keys' ``Fallin','' Furtado's
``I'm Like A Bird'' and Train's ``Drops of Jupiter.''

U2 -- singer Bono, guitarist the Edge, bass player Adam Clayton and drummer
Larry Mullen Jr. -- already has 10 Grammys, including album of the year for
its 1987 opus ``The Joshua Tree,'' which has sold about 17 million copies
worldwide.

Its contender for the 2002 race, ``All That You Can't Leave Behind,'' has
sold just over 10 million copies worldwide since its October 2000 release,
McGuinness said, and is on track to surpass ``The Joshua Tree.''

Other album of the year nominees this year, besides U2 and Dylan, were
Arie's ``Acoustic Soul,'' Outkast's ``Stankonia'' and the soundtrack to the
movie ``O Brother, Where Art Thou?''

U2 won the record and song of the year races last year for ''Beautiful
Day,'' a track released before the Grammys' Sept. 30 cutoff date.

Its record of the year candidate this year is ``Walk On,'' which is
dedicated to Burmese political prisoner Aung San Suu Kyi. Also competing
were Arie's ``Video,'' Keys' ``Fallin','' OutKast's ``Ms. Jackson'' and
Train's ``Drops of Jupiter.''

U2 WILL PERFORM AT GRAMMYS

U2 will perform at the Grammys, McGuinness confirmed, and is considering
touring Europe in the summer. The group played 115 shows across North
America and Europe in 2001.

U2 was also nominated for rock album, and the pop (''Stuck in a Moment You
Can't Get Out Of'') and rock (''Elevation'') vocal performance categories.
``Elevation'' and ``Walk On'' are competing against each other for rock
song.

Arie and Keys will also compete against each other for female R&B vocal
performance, R&B song and R&B album. The only category where they are not
head to head is album of the year, where Keys' ``Songs In A Minor'' was a
surprise omission. The acclaimed work was the best selling debut album of
2001 in the United States, selling 4.1 million units since June.

Arie brushed off talk of a battle of the divas.

``I'm just gonna pray that I will get whatever I deserve,'' she said.
``Anything's possible (on the night). Nothing's ever going to stop me from
making music, so it's not that serious. As long as I'm always inspired,
that's the most important thing.''

The Dylan album was important but a ``a little inaccessible'' to some Grammy
voters, said Michael Greene, president of the National Academy of Recording
Arts & Sciences, which may have accounted for its relative paucity of nods.

Dylan's groundbreaking albums of the 1960s and 1970s were famously
overlooked by Grammy voters, fueling complaints that the awards are
hopelessly out of touch. Overdue recognition finally came in 1998 when his
previous release ``Time Out of Mind'' won three Grammys, including album of
the year.

Reuters, 2002.

LMAO! I WANT ONE!! When did he have the surgery to inplant that thing oh so THAT'S why he had the bald head that time! OOOH!

Seriously I have always wondered if he and the other band members do have something like that, not a tracking device but some kind of body alarm in case they are attacked or kidnapped they could activate it and they could be tracked down-shucks- killjoy
