U2 are playing Glastonbury this weekend after having to cancel their Main Stage debut there last year due to Bono’s surgery. Apparently the Biggest Band in the World have never played at one of the Biggest Festivals in the World!
So there’s this guy in England named Zane Lowe who has the BEST JOB EVER. Why? Well Monday he interviewed Larry (who he christened Larry ‘Bang Bang’ Mullen!) about Glastonbury and then on Tuesday he interviewed Brandon Flowers on his birthday!! (how was he going to spend it? On a Jack the Ripper Tour – how – festive..?!)
So basically, Zane Lowe is my idol 😉
The “Boss Man’s” (another Zane nickname) interview with Larry is great. He sounds excited but nervous and U2 are always at their best when despite their zillions of dollars and decades of success and accolades – they still feel like the underdogs. I can’t wait to see what setlist wins out and to see the videos arrive on YouTube next week.
Blessings not just for the ones who kneel, luckily
