I kinda got excited over the past couple of weeks, then I read that interview with Friday. Itís endless bullshit from camp U2 these days.

Iím happy to be converted, but I donít expect much.

Yeah.   The whole ďmore Rock n RollĒ than ever stuff is hogwash. 

Bullet, SBS, Zoo TV was real rock n roll.

I'm always interested in a new U2 show, at least initially, to see what the staging looks like and to find out the setlist etc.  I've always been fascinated by setlists since I was a teenager and used to read Record Mirror because they included the full setlist in their concert reviews.

How is this mate of Bono, Gavin Friday getting the gig?
Some bullshit curator role.
If I was in the band, I would not stand for it.

Iíd say more but itís not anything to do with any interviews or the new song, just anticipation as it is soon and the sphere looks cool.  Also excited to hear songs that havenít been played in a while like Love Is Blindness

Bono's the band leader.

It's rare to still have the same friend one's had since childhood, especially as one becomes super successful and famous.

I went with 'has not changed'.  I'll tune in to see what they are doing but really pretty down on the U2 Corporation these days. 

The Gavin Friday quote read like Bono wrote it, handed it to him and said 'now read this verbatim chap, and remember who puts food on your table.'

I opted for "Nothing Has Changed," but I'm increasingly getting to the point where one or two more serious missteps and I become a former U2 fan.
Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.
