Writer Kathleen St. John is not ashamed. No matter how much of a bloated, corporate spectacle U2 has become, they were once The Greatest Band In The World. Remember the thrill on watching the video of the rooftop performance of Where The Streets Have No Name? Remember when Bono’s constant sunglass-wearing was not a complete self-parody? Remember sincerity? Remember youth? Remember joy?
Okay, perhaps that’s a bit too much, but those are the kinds of sentiments that Bono, The Edge, Larry and Adam have been fostering for years. Raise a pint to the Irish lads. Get out your rosary. Put on your leather jacket. After all, none of us have found what we’re looking for, right?
