Bono Talks About Music Post September 11

Robert Hilburn of the Los Angeles Times spoke with singer Bono about his band’s success in 2001 and how he feels about rock music after the events of September 11. Bono said, “Real violence now is just a blunder away for everybody. A whole core of a city can be taken out by a suitcase filled with some dirty nuclear bomb. That makes the sort of suburban angst that has been such a big part of rock lately seem like something pretty small — the guy who is saying, ‘I’m so angry with the world that I’m going to hurt myself.’ It’s enough to make you laugh.”
