U2 has always been political and worked with those in power in the USA. However, the current climate isn`t really something they have a taste for. Good on ya Bono, Edge, Larry, & Adam.

This is their latest video.

Track: 'Get Out of Your Own Way'---U2



Here is a clip from an interview on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' they did concerning the current occupant of the White House.

I frisbee'd Songs of Innocence into the CD tray yesterday for the first time in an age. I've heard stray
comments (from unreliable quarters) that it was a flawed album. F***ed if I noticed that yesterday.

On April 4 it will be the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It gets a mention in the last verse of the track. The other track is a song written for him. From the album The Unforgettable Fire

Track: 'Pride (In the Name of Love)'---U2



Track: 'MLK'---U2

The first U2 album I bought and heard in full. A few memories there... And two great and sincere tributes to Dr. King.

In a recent interview, activist John Lewis said, "I truly believe that the young people and women will get us [to the dream Dr. King spoke of]. We're not quite there yet."

Heard this while we were packing our gear in after last night's gig:

This is heartwarming. I must confess to neglecting my U2 duty these days (to say nothing of my BB duty). I suppose these things come in waves...

Basically my feelings towards a major clusterfuck in the making concerning the recent news about my favorite show (The Walking Dead, for those not in the know.)

Track: 'Numb'---U2

Back to more serious matters... I heard "YTBTAM" on our last day on the Isles of Scilly:
