unchellmatt: They SHOULD do a flamenco album.

There is really no way it could suck huge donkey cock more than Zooropa.


You have to know more than five chords to play flamenco.

However, the article didn't address the most important question in all this, Did Bono ever find what he was looking for? I understand that he was searching where the Street Have No Names, on Sunday. Bloody Sunday! I think it had to do with a Bad Desire for the Sweetest Thing that he lost after The Unforgettable Fire on New Years Day. I guessing he did not, because it sounds like he is trying to enlist the help of as many Spanish Eyes as he can get. Good to know his Pride didn't get in the way of asking for help.

/Sorry, I guess I'm Stuck In A Moment I Can't Get Out Of. It was a Beautiful Day and I was Staring At The Sun until we had an Electrical Storm. I asked Miss Sarajevo to Stay Until The End Of The World, but now she's Gone. I miss her Mysterious Ways and I guess I'm feeling kind of Numb. Oh well, it isn't like this is The First Time that has happened.

rickythepenguin: netcentric: Wasn't U2 the band that had thier money in offshore carribean secret accounts so the EU couldn't tax them ??

the story i recall is just a few years ago they moved quote / unquote "U2 Inc." (whatever corporate entity formed to represent the band) from Ireland to I think the Netherlands;  I'm fuzzy on the details but it was either the foreign country gave far more favorable tax treatment or Ireland was poised to enact more taxes on corporations, some shiat like that.

Irish politicians were pretty upset as, at the time, Ireland was in a pretty dire financial situation and it iddn't play well; not a good look when the home sons abandon the country and take money out of the coffers.

ehhh.  i guess i can't balme them for making a sound business decision but yeah, they took a measure of shiat for that.


Huh,   so U2 was saying to the Government

Taxed
Enough
Already

...when it came to thier money.     How about that.

If they really want to help Spain... they can move thier money into Spanish banks.   Talk all the world celebrities into banking in Spain and donating any 'extra' millions in cash directly to Spains treasury to use as needed.

Because charity is good.  People need help.    Like Africa.

Wait... this isn't charity.   He is talking about just buying Spanish goods.     But if everybody switches from German and Italian goods to Spanish then doesn't that mean Germany and Italy will then have a problem...

Hey...I don't think Bono has thought this through very well.

spawn73: Buggar: Europe is getting their economic advice from musicians?  Well THERE's yer problem.

I don't think he's giving advice, which he would suck at, but more appealing to decency of the fellow EU citizen.

I'd buy something Spanish. But the only Spanish thing you can get is Chupa Chubs. All the ham is either German or Italian.


The type of people who require Bono to give them advice on the problem, will go out and buy a sombrero, because, "That will help those Spanish guys."

Does he advocate moving to a foreign country to avoid paying your fair share of taxes? You know...  like he did?

Or he could just sign them over the rights to some of his clever advertising jingles.
