U2 'Off The Record' This Weekend
'The age thing doesn't matter anymore.' explains Bono. 'It's about the ideas, the quality of ideas you have...'
You can hear the rest of what Bono has to say on this subject by checking out Joe Benson, ARROW 93's Morning Man in Los Angeles, whose syndicated show this weekend features the music of U2 and a recent conversation with Bono and Edge.
The radio show is accessible on the net. Visit unclejoe.com
Then click on the "Radio/Music/Racing Link" for a city in your area that is broadcasting it. If you are not in a city which is carrying the show some stations will stream it.
And the rest of the quote from Bono ?
'To be honest with you I thought U2, you know we've been around awhile, how will people feel about us? So I was kind of taken aback by the warmth and the sort of good feelings towards us... 'I think maybe a few years ago I would have been in the crowd throwing rocks at me...but it's not about age, its about ideas, the quality of ideas and I think that people realize that we haven't taken an easy road over the last few years.'
