Henry Rollins is taking a jab at Bono again. This time it’s to criticize him for taking on too many causes.
In the Sunday Mirror, Rollins suggests that the U2 singer would be better off picking one cause and forgetting about music all together.
“I think if the guy is doing something, it’s better than nothing — but I just wonder if he’s following through,” said Rollins. “Like he’s Mr. Africa Third World Debt Guy, which is a huge issue…Now, I hate this guy’s music, but I like the idea of absolving Third World debt, because otherwise these people are going to die. So if he’s using all that rock-star power…well, right on. But now he’s Mr. AIDS Guy. Well, wait a minute, how did you go from Third World debt to AIDS?”
The involvement in more than one cause makes Rollins question Bono’s sincerity.
“Is this a crusade or really good promo for U2’s new Greatest Hits album?” asked Rollins. “I have to think his heart’s in the right place. I think he’s a boring singer, but I don’t think he’s a bad man.”
