ThisIsLondon.com reports TV producers had trouble shutting Bono up at the Grammy Awards last night. (He was overrunning advertising slots at $500,000 a minute.) They resorted to playing music to drown him out.
Seriously, reading Bono’s words… they don’t sound like ‘rambling’ to us. Maybe the Grammy audience isn’t used to artist actually saying something they mean: “It is still an extraordinary thing to behold the sound of a rock and roll band in full flight. Not just the sound of it when it gets airborne – but the deals that you make on the ground; the promises that your friendship will survive being broke [or] not being broke; the Eighties – and maybe 20 years later you will find yourselves at an award ceremony with people you started out with. Wow.”
