Did you happen to see the movie LM Jr was in w/ Donald Southerland, "Man on the Train"? It is a re-make. Still though, pretty good.When they became a global super power it was a turn off for everyone I suppose, but still underneath, is a beautiful 4 piece band and Larry Mullen jr is still my man... after all these years...
I know, but where would the world be without mouthy, opinionated lead singers? the thing is - I think he is very well meaning, but I never ever was into him - too much posturing, on and off stage.I wish Bono was the strong, silent type. ;)
I missed this. I've got that album. The lad could play a bit, as they say. I bought it after reading this:22 year old glenn gould's first studio album. whether you dig it or not, you'll never hear anyone play
the piano like him.
Actually I think that's been mentioned on here before about 'Dirty Day' but it had completely slipped my mind. Maybe that's why I was thinking about it, who knows?BD: I pretty much feel the same way about U2. Grew up on them, then lost interest. I think i mentioned this before but are you aware that "Dirty Day", according to Bono, is a lyrical tribute to Buk? Just saying. It's hardly worth mentioning now that i think about it 'cause Bono ain't quite skilled in the clean, hard line.
This is just pure speculation on my part, but I wonder if it was the Zoo TV Tour that was the concert CB went to see, it's around the right time He was 72, so that would make it 1992 ish, not sure.
Rock music does not do it for me. I went to a rock concert, mainly for the sake of my wife, Linda. Sure, I’m a good guy, huh? Huh? Anyhow, the tickets were free, courtesy of the rock musician who reads my books.

If not that, does anyone know which one it was?
It gets a mention in the documentary film 'Born Into This'. Bono says something along the lines of "I think we really got to the old guy" in reference to his name-checking Bukowski at the concert he attended. The connection between U2 and Bukowski (apart from Bono being a fan) was, if I remember rightly, Sean Penn being a mutual friend.I'm pretty sure Linda & Buk went to a U2 show and Bono name checked Buk. Apparently it was strange for Buk, just strange.

[...] does anyone know which one it was?
I got the feeling whilst watching the film that it was wishful thinking. I also got the feeling Bono was included to increase publicity as he didn't really add a lot to it.Check out the top comments by the way if you go to youtube itself ("Goddamit, what's Bono doing in this film?" & "Fuck Bono.")
