"John Lennon really did kind of write the rule book. As a tunesmith, as an irritant, as a willing taker of pratfalls. He was in the queue for the mud pies -- all of that stuff that I do, I got from his little red book."

Bono at launch of friend's novel

@U2, February 06, 2013
By: Rashas

 

Bono was on hand last night to support his friend and first-time novelist, Helen Seymour. According to HotPress.com, he began by reading a passage from the novel, Beautiful Noise, before continuing on to speak highly of his friend and note the struggle she had to finish the book, which deals with Dublin pirate radio in the 1980s.

"Of course the novel's not really about pirate radio," he noted. "If anything this novel is about the inability of people to communicate with each other even as they're talking to the whole city ... The book is a labour of love and the sound her baby made on entry to the world was indeed a beautiful noise."

He concluded by singing Neil Diamond's "Beautiful Noise" a cappella ("bear with me as I invoke the spirit of de Diamond!").
