Read a quote somewhere where Yoko called Bono John's other son. I'm a huge U2 fan but I'm not sold. I can see it in some of the early lyrics. I see it in the social activism. But would John have had a sit down with the pope or Jesse Helms? Is that sort of thing just the best way to do get things done now and is a natural extension of laying in bed? Curious what folks think.

I mean, Lennon probably was an inspiration to Bono, and yes, Bono was probably reassured that since Lennon did speak out, he could, but Bono is both more restrained and more out there. And I'll show you with a story. In 2004 (or 2005. I can't remember, but I remember the PM in question was only in power two years), Bono said he'd "kick Paul Martin {sitting Canadian Prime Minister at the time}'s ass" for not pledging 1% of GDP to AIDS prevention, or something to that effect. That shows how Bono could be restrained, in so far as it's only words, not a Bed-In, but also more provacative. Who says they're going to kick the ass of a Prime Minister, for f***'s sake?

Well I can see some similarities.. both lost their Moms in early age and wrote about it, both are activist. Also, Bono loves Beatles, in the U2 concert I went, he started singing Rain when it began to rain.

 

But I can't see Bono having a solo career as John did.

Yoko only likes him 'cause he's got "Ono" in his name!

I don't like U2, really.

Indian music can't be listened to the same way you hear rock and roll. You cannot do 'Yea Yea' and 'Go Man Go' - Ravi Shankar
