U2's Bono Even Annoys Himself

12/22/2010
.
(Gibson) Bono displayed his affection for Australia in an article he penned for the Australian newspaper The Daily Telegraph. Currently on tour in Australia, Bono thanked his host nation for welcoming U2 back in the '80s: "For me a love affair began in 1984, when U2 arrived in Sydney with some new songs: 'Pride in the Name of Love,' and 'The Unforgettable Fire.' Our band like countless Irish before us landed here, and fell over in awe."

Honest to a fault, Bono then turns to some of U2's mistakes and his own personality failings: "In Sydney in 1993, the Zoo TV show was a low point in our long career: the only time one of us didn't turn up for a concert. Adam Clayton probably hasn't forgiven himself until this tour.

"Australia forgave us that and other indulgences. Among them my sanctimony. I know I can be a pain in the arse. I have an annoying gene; it's in my DNA. I even annoy myself. When righteous anger turns to self-righteous, projectile vomit is the right response."
