For the time and effort it takes they wouldn’t release new material anymore if money was a big factor, I’m talking about the band members specifically. Yes for the ‘brand’ I’m sure they’ve got lots of stuff locked away that they’ll be hoping to make money off in the future. But if anything rather than the band members thinking about how much these future releases can make I actually think it will be the opposite and they’ll be trying to be as protective as possible about what can and can’t be released. The idea that the band members want stuff saved away for their future generations I just don’t buy into, their kids and grandkids will be looked after with non band related stuff like investments etc. I don’t think Bono is thinking well the grandkids can make some money of zoo tv Dublin 40 years from now, or the outtakes album.
They never would give that for apple for less money than they could get selling
And the only reason for don’t repeat it was the terrible reception of that, U2 was humiliated around the world to had did that. Just one of the problems to keep without Paul McGuine$$
I dont mind about what do you think about their future generations, because I‘d never stated this, it was just ONE of the hypothesis I raised, but you keep hold on that like it was a completly non sense stated.😂
