Was that James Iha on "People Get Ready"??

hey guys-

according to a reviewer on U2tours.com, the person pulled up for "People Get Ready" at the 10/15 Chicago show was James Iha, the guitarist from Smashing Pumpkins. This seems a little far-fetched... Could this really be true, or is that reviewer just confused? if anyone was there, please post your opinion!!

Thanks!

PS- I'm *really* upset about the disappearance of both "Mysterious Ways" and "The Fly"...

It was Arun V from this very board. Check the 5.789 threads about it in this forum.



My guess is *Ally* will reply with: "silly, DrTeeth! i'm talking about the Chicago show that happened last night, not the Hamilton show that Arun played at. i'm clueless, but not *that* clueless!"

no, it wasn't ACTUALLY him. bono was just trying to come up with some lyrics, so he sang something to the effect of..."hey, haven't i seen you before, you're the guitarist from smashing pumpkins"
he did kind of look like him...but it wasn't
after the song, bono was so cute, he said how it was really hard to think of something that rhymed with pumpkins. lol
gotta love that man

It was most definitely NOT James Iha. Trust me I was there. Bono was just trying to come up with something to say and since the guy "looked" like James he said that line about SP. It was NOT James Iha.

this is what somebody else posted at u2tours.com:

spontaneity by inviting an eager guitarist to accompany them on “People Get Ready” (Great job, Louis!),

so maybe it was some Louis guy?

It wasn't James...I was actually standing next to "Louis" inside the Heart when Bono walked over to read his sign that he had made. His sign was in reference to his ability to acually play "PGR" and Bono initially told him that his sign was "mean". (I'm assuming this was in regards to the Hamilton performance.) Anyway, a security guard walked over, asked him if he could really play it because Bono would ask him up on the ramp. Low and Behold, he rocked! Took the 6 string and rocked. Bono brought him back to the heart where his "girlfriend" and my wife helped him back over the railing. I then reached up with my camera and asked Bono to take a picture of us. He grabbed the camera, took the picture, shook my hand and handed the camera back. Cooooooool! Unfortunately as with every other picture I've tried to take at the 7 shows I've seen on this tour...the damn thing didn't turn out! What am I doing wrong? It would have been the best frickin picture ever, but...well, have to see if I can make it happen again tonight.

Anyway, the James Iha reference was only a reference!

James Iha?! LOL...

I was there too. NO, it wasn't him! This kid was too young and didn't look a thing like him. Bono was being flippant, but, aside from the lucky bloke on stage, it appears that many missed the joke.

It would have been cool, but I doubt he would have been in GA without being mobbed by rabid Pumpkins fans. I mean, it would be like Bono in GA at a different band's concert in Ireland. It's just not going to happen, because of obvious problems of security.

Everything was supposed to be the same: commercials, Beethoven's late quartets, pop records, shopfronts, Freud, multi-coloured hair. Greatness, comparison, value, depth: gone, gone, gone. Anything could give some pleasure; he saw that. But not everything provided the sustenance of a deeper understanding." - Hanif Kureishi, Love in a Blue Time
