Bono Talks U2, Justice, Religion, Protest Songs and Much More
Talk-show host Redi Thlabi, of Talk Radio 702, spent 30 minutes this morning talking with U2 front man Bono.
[pullquote]There’s a bunch of tickets in a river somewhere, if anyone wants them…[/pullquote]Their conversation ranged across a broad spectrum of topics, but began with Bono clarifying his views on protest songs and what he actually said and meant about their use. Bono also managed to get in a subtle jibe aimed at the local Afrikaans singer and father of the Volk who used a piece of shoddy journalism as an opportunity to jump on the bandwagon (or should that be ‘the osewa‘?).
Here’s the full interview presently being podcast via 702:
