Nice interview Luke. A word of advice if I may - you need to beg, steal, borrow or crowd fund some money when the next tour comes around; it will take your appreciation of U2 to a whole new level. Bootlegs and official release can’t replicate the thrill of being there.
"For the next album, I want a surprise. I want something new, something they've never done before; but I don't want them to do something new just to be new. As to what that is, I do not know, but all I desire is a good U2 album."
This is very well said, and I couldn't agree more
Great interview, Luke, some really good answers and insights thanks for the nice read, and welcome to the family
"I put the now-legendary notice up. I think the wording was something like 'Drummer seeks musicians to form band'. I just thought of it as a group of people coming together to have a bit of fun, it was never anything else."
