You know, I love Bono. He’s an amazing person — a rock star, a humanitarian, a celebrity who’s not afraid to age. He makes beautiful music and talks about third world debt relief. I mean, what’s not to love? If I ever met him, I would cry and throw up — at the same time.
So all that love said, what the hell was he thinking when he wrote this piece, “Notes from the Chairman” for the New York Times?
Can someone read it and tell me what it’s about? All I could tell was that he talks about Frank Sinatra, he talks about a painting Frank gave him, about how the economy is not good in Ireland, how Guinness is black velvet in a glass…but it doesn’t go anywhere. It’s a little like hearing a long, drunk-dialing message. Not good. Was this a mistake?
