"I want U2 to be a band that takes risks. I hate this idea of U2 as a nice safe band. . . . The rock rebel thing is very phony."
@U2 QOM September 2012: U2 Goes to School
It's back to school time for a lot of people. What class should each member of U2 take, and why?
October 07, 2012
(Each month, @U2 puts a spotlight on U2 fans with our "Question of the Month." We pose a question to our readers and invite answers of 200 words or less. If you're interested in taking part, check our home page to see if the current question is still open. If not, check back shortly after the beginning of next month and we'll have another question ready to be answered!)
John Ballard: Are you kidding? They should not be taking courses. They should be teaching courses, leading courses, facilitating courses.
Hugo Cruz: All four members should take piano lessons. Never hurts to expand your musical abilities and horizons.
Joseph Pittella: Ding Ding, school is now in session.
Adam Clayton, please report to Finance 101. There you will be able to follow all the money you "maid" with a keen eye.
Larry Mullen Jr., please check the bulletin board for your room assignment. I believe you are going to Film Class, they are always trying to drum up some business.
