Those of you who may know me will eventually know that I love U2, the band. Like really love. Yes, even through all their creative periods and changes. Yes.
Some of you have opinions about their music and message. I understand that. Here’s what I think. Bono (the balls of the guy to name himself after the Italian word for “Good”) says some things people don’t like. For some reason they don’t agree with what he says on and off the stage. I don’t care. An artist’s statement is on the album. Anything outside of that is music press. It’s that simple.
They, the band, have brought some beauty to this fucked up world, and I have full appreciation of that.
