In our forum last night, member “Hwy 190″ shared the photo above that shows what clearly looks like a clean saw cut to the fallen Joshua tree — i.e., the actual tree from the inner cover of U2’s album. The forum member lives in the California desert and says s/he’s been visiting the site of […]

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.

Today is World AIDS Day, and Bono showed up this morning on ABC’s This Week news program. George Stephanopoulos did the interview with Bono last week during the preparations for that big (RED) auction in New York City. Nothing much new that U2 fans haven’t heard before, but here’s the video: Unfortunately your browser does […]
On the heels of our recent interview with Dennis Bell, who directed the New Voices Of Freedom choir in Rattle And Hum, we have a couple more treats to share — also courtesy of Dennis! He’s uploaded two rare audio tracks to SoundCloud that you’ll enjoy. I’m gonna go in reverse order and talk first […]
You know that 6-DVD Amnesty International concert set that we reported about a couple weeks ago on the main @U2 website? It looks like it’s going to have some extremely rare U2 footage, taken from musician Peter Gabriel’s home video camera. Here’s the deal: When I was researching years ago for my U2-A Diary book, […]
The good folks at Ireland’s Hot Press magazine are hoping for some help from the U2 fan community to get a project called the Irish Music Photo Archive (IMPA) to happen. IMPA wants to create a permanent collection of photography of every Irish artist going back to the beginnings of rock music (including U2, obviously), […]
