U2 The (In)Complete Encyclopedia

First off Interference didnít get a listing but Wire did and under Compilations 'The Sound of Today' featuring 'New Years Day' from 1986 was missed.
Any other omissions?

Personally, I think Interference should stay under the radar. I like it that way.

Oh, so many errors. I don't have the book with me, so I can't give you a comprehensive list, but I'll just post what I can remember.

One minor error was the omission of the 2001 Rolling Stone Awards. This was just careless, since this information is so easy to fine.

Also, in the list of concert dates in the back, it lists the Chicago shows for the Elevation tour as taking place in Chicago, MI. Interesting, since I was fairly certain that I still lived in Illinois.

There's more, but none of them are coming to mind at the moment.

Well, I like that the author names his son as a proofreader for the final version. I'm assuming his son is 6. I could proofread better than that when I was in school.

I'm assuming his son doesn't know how to read.

I'm glad I have Interferencers to tell me what's a crap book and what's not. (No sarcasm, really!)

There are mistakes, but overall, I did enjoy the book.

Has anybody attempted to contact the author about errors? I think a revised edition of this book would be superb.
