...and that my friends represents just one more reason for me to become more distant from this band...


-I hope all is well with everyone - it has been a while, no?

i still cannot see a quote where he says "were going to make hip hop" i see him talking about the innovation in the studios the experimentation, which most people on this forum have been craving for it seems

but as i said please shoe me the quote where he says "were making a new hip hop album", once again it seems a story is getting misunderstood

"I happen to be in really a truly great band, and experimentation has been the lifeblood of this band," he said. "We of course will look and are looking across at hip hop and see the amazing innovation in the studio...

"I don't know where we're going to go with all our new information and all our new friends ... but it will be somewhere very special or you won't hear about it, because there's no reason for you to put out an album now unless its very special."

"You know," he explained, "we don't need the cash."

True. The title of this thread is manipulation at its very worst

Now, getting serious..........., how would U2 make a hip hop album, it's clear Bono is just talking about various influences..........................haven't they already experimented hip hop?...............Remember POP?

Remember that Achtung Baby was also "influenced" by hip-hop, as stated by at least Bono, Adam & Edge on many occasions.

Nowhere in the article does it say anything about making hip-hop, nor anything about working with Kanye or anyone else. All conclusions about that were wrongfully made by the reporter and the opening post.

I wouldn't want to see a U2 hip-hop album, nor do I think that it would ever, ever happen (can you really see Edge or Larry ok-ing that??). However, to be influenced by hip-hop--in the sense that Mysterious Ways was influenced by it---that'd be okay with me.

Good point. He talked about hip-hop influences back then, too.

I take that to mean they're more interested in looking at the studio innovation going on in hip hop.

Anyone ever heard "I'm not Your Baby"- some song with Bono and Sinead O'Connor. It's got a cool hip hop groove. Great song that got away. I'm all for U2 experimenting. Hip Hop, Techno, Metal, Classical, Jazz, Country, Opera, Punk, Polka....ok maybe not Country.

it's not like their going to be doing duets with Snoop Dogg now.

Now they should definetly get Rubin

Of course, it's not like any of this is going to happen...

"You know," he explained, "we don't need the cash."....uh ya, 2008 at the earliest.
