U2 – A Flashback…

U2 — let me count the ways.  The boys from Dublin have always always been in my top 5, truth be told; top 5 as rock stars and performers; and top 5 as human beings. I started working with them before Edge ever put a scarf on his head back when they first emerged as an up and coming band.  I did some interviews with them at the US Festival here in Southern California and Bono has a spiky hair do and a young beautiful face.  They were magicians from the first.  Later, as their power increased so did their self-awareness that they should use their exalted status for good and change as many of the great 80s band did as well.

Over the years, I worked with U2 and interviewed them for the Today Show and MTV,  from New York and New Jersey to LA and back , and to the UK again and Dublin where I spent days on a wonderful shoot with them for their ZOO tour which genius Kevin Godley produced.  They never disappointed and always brought their hearts front and center.  Two years ago, I saw Bono at a magnificent memorial for a friend who’d passed.  We were catching up and I asked him really, what are you up to ?  In real life?  He answered me.  I work for Archbishop Tutu. Bono. There you go.

The boys in U2, really men of course, now, have always represented to me musicians and artists obviously deeply committed to the quality of their music but cognizant as well of the astonishing benefits its’ provided their lives.  And unlike some who are content just to live the good life with the fruits of their labors, they want others less fortunate to live the good life too. This is why the fanatic U2 fan remains inside my heart.

Check out my interview with the men of U2.
