You’ve probably heard by now that David Bowie died Sunday after battling cancer. And if you’ve been a U2 fan for any length of time, you know of the immense impact that Bowie had on the band — and Bono, in particular. I’d expect some kind of official statement on U2.com in the next day […]

You may recall a few years ago when I wrote about my wall of U2 album covers and the cool frames I found to display them. I ordered those from Rock Art Picture Show and have recommended the frames to many other U2 fans since then. Interested in getting some album cover frames for your […]
If you’re like me, your social media streams are filling up today with friends that are “Peanutizing” themselves. Say what? They’re “peanutizing” themselves — turning themselves into Peanuts characters. It’s part of a website that’s designed to promote the upcoming Peanuts film. You know — Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, etc. I haven’t peanutized myself yet, […]
You probably heard about the new Apple Music service announced this week, but you probably didn’t hear about one tragic (for U2 fans) change that came along with the new iTunes software and everything else: The Bono “All Artists” icon has been removed from iTunes!!!

You really haven’t lived until you’ve seen Junior, a French Bulldog, singing along in the car to “With Or Without You.” Just like we all do. Thanks to @2PugsinaPod for pointing us toward the video (from the dog with its own Twitter account). The internet is the best.
This is really cool. U2 fans from around the world have shared brief video messages to let Bono know that they’re (we’re) thinking about him, praying for him, and hoping he recovers fully and quickly from that awful bike accident last month. @U2 was one of many fan sites around the world to help spread […]
Thanks to @U2 reader Nick Kawaler for sharing these Songs Of Innocence-themed iPhone wallpapers with us, and inviting us to share them with you. The first one might work best as your lock screen image, but feel free to download any/all of them and test to your heart’s content.
Bono recently met one of the all-time great chess masters in Dublin, Garry Kasparov, and talks about the visit in a letter that was posted today on Kasparov’s election website. Election? Yep. He’s running for President of FIDE, the World Chess Federation. And in the letter, Bono expresses his support for Kasparov to get the […]
Artist Fin DAC has created an enormous mural painting of Bono and The Edge inside the Gibson Hotel in Dublin. Gary P., our Dublin photographer friend, met up with the artist last Wednesday to shoot these photos as the project wrapped up. We’re told this is a permanent mural, so next time you’re in Dublin […]
