So… AI is coming. What will it bring for U2 fans ?

Just imagine… all the post 2000 U2 records… sung by 1984-1987 Bono. I’d be curious to hear this, if I’m honest.
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

Haha I've been clamoring for something like this ever since I started seeing deepfake videos. Imagine having software where you can have any song performed by any artist? I would be a kid in a candy store. Like, what would a live version of So Cruel have sounded like in 1992 if the whole band had performed it? What about a live performance of Drowning Man or Promenade?

Gimme.

Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.

Honestly, I’d love someone to push some buttons and have AI make a new U2 song circa mid-80s. And I’m sure I’d probably like it better than what I’ve heard from SOS.

Until then, the best we can do is listen to these guys (skip to :47 seconds in, he sounds exactly like Bono in his prime):

Once the big companies set the model and buy whomever they need to buy it will be unstoppable.

Here’s an interesting take… I find the Kurt Cobain / Soundgarden thing very, very bad because it’s badly done…. this, on the other hand, is both incredibly accurate and interesting since Kurt Cobain said he would like to sing with Hole and go on tour with them :
