Mullen Monday: The Larry Narrations edition

3 Comments

Last week U2 announced re-scheduled US tour dates! Along with the news came a video from the band in which Larry revealed himself to be the band’s own videographer! Who knew?!

I found it really sweet that this was just the four guys in a room, clearly working on music and acting like they must do with one another – joking, teasing, some introspection. It reminded me of a photo of them backstage in Rolling Stone last year that said the band spends a few minutes alone together before every show. I love that – with the many people around who make the U2 machine run – there are still those few moments that they are just the four who make the music.

Loved seeing Bono up and around and getting back in the game, but damn if Larry does not steal the show with his line, Now The Edge, you’ve been quite promiscuous recently, tell us about that. Hell hath no fury like a drummer scorned!

  1. Really loved this video, personal, heartfelt and fun. It’s good to know that they appreciate what expense we go to when we see a gig (besides the ticket).

    • Hi Sue! I too was really happy to hear Bono acknowledge that. There is such a “culture” around seeing U2 live and for many it is more than worth the hassles and costs of flying and hotels and all the rest.

      I’ve imagined that Bono has wanted to say something ever since it happened. I am sure he felt absolutely gutted by what happened. It was great to see him up and ready to go.

  2. This is up there with the Knicks game vid and the Letterman top 10 vid. Larry should have his own web series and call it “Mondays with Mullen”!

    You know now that he did this one, he’s gonna want to do other ones now that he’s a famous actor. Maybe he can be an anchor on the BranNewsNetwork!!!!!
