We’re attempting to go with a “Best Of the Week” theme, so please feel free to reply with what we’ve missed. If you are wondering why a weekly recap would come in the middle of the week, then you clearly have never done a pie chart statistical analysis of U2 band member sightings. Friday night through Tuesday afternoon. Prime viewing opportunities. (Just saying .)
Bono cliche alert of the week came during the CNN video interview that we linked to on the home page on Tuesday. It is a video podcast with Dr. Sanjay Gupta. Near the end, Bono refers to his above outfit as “the enemy’s clothes.” Is that a new one? I think so. Bono also brings back the time-worn “I am Bono and I’m sick of Bono” utterance. Aaah, we’ve missed that one. (Bono was in Germany on serious business, to deliver the DATA report, which you can read in full on the DATA website.)
Best Bono political photo-op of the week has to be this photo of Bono and EU Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso for the sole reason that the EU flags on the podiums will give you flashbacks to Zooropa.
Best hat of the week award clearly goes to Dr. The Edge for this sweet number he donned at Berklee College of Music last Saturday. Ditch the beanie! Edge probably also needs to win best heavy metal reference for quoting AC/DC in his graduation address at Berklee. AC/DC? Is it possible that Edge has been practicing his power chords in the studio this month? Or is he just a big tease? The talking in circles award also goes to Dr. Edge for telling the Boston Herald “We’re still working on material for the new album so it’s impossible to say what will happen when.”
Speaking of the studio, did you catch this drummer and bass player sighting?
