Un altro musicista che si aggiunge al gruppo “haters” degli U2. Taylor Hawkins dei Foo Fighters durante un’intervista a TheMusic.com.au ha infatti dichiarato:
“I mean, I think they probably thought it was gonna be a great idea, ‘Here’s the deal: everybody who has an iPhone, gets your record. And they get it for free!’ And they thought, probably, ‘Well that’s pretty awesome!’ but they didn’t really take into consideration the Big Brother feeling that kinda goes along with like, ‘[In menacing voice] You have the new U2 record’… You couldn’t get rid of it and they actually had to come up with an app to get rid of it, that’s horrible. I liked all the YouTube footage of all the crap: ‘What the fuck is this shit doin’ on my phone, dog? Get this shit off my phone, dog!’ Haha, it was like, HAHAHAHAhahaha. What happened to U2, man? I don’t think people are that hyped on them. I don’t know that any of that new album has anything great on it. I listened to it once, but it’s so marred by that whole sort of, like I said, Orwellian, 1984 extreme that it just kinda sounds like a fart any way you listen to it.”
Il bue che dice cornuto all’asino visto, anzi ascoltato, il nuovo-pessimo ‘Sonic Highways’. E Bono che dirà?
