The Edge: “[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ‘You know what? We’re not going to second-guess any of this. Let’s just go for it.’”

U2 Fans: We'd all love to see that, Edge.

First 10 seconds weren't awful.
Hold on, people! The man's talking about waste management. That affects the whole damn planet.

That could've been worse...

It would be much more palatable if Bono backed a few feet away from the camera.

I hope he doesn’t hold the phone to his ear for FaceTime calls!

These are the kind of camera angles I get when I FaceTime my 80 yo mother.  ;D

Dear god...

Bono, let it go. You have a nice voice and all, if rather flat on the higher notes, but you are not Robert plant. And edge, you are not jimmy page. U2, put simply, are no match for the mighty Led Zeppelin, who have, incidentally, had the common decency to quit while they were ahead. I can remember the mighty Zeppelin as always being great. I will remember U2 as faded stars, who died on their knees.

What gives human life it's worth anyway? Because someone loves it? Or hates it? The flesh is weak, only the soul is immortal.

I'm reckon U2 would have quit too had Larry died in his early thirties.  By 1980 Led Zeppelin had already experienced diminishing returns since 1975 and that trend probably would have continued.

I disagree.

Look at New Order. They were basically Joy Division with a new singer.
