Bowie and U2 News

I heard the other day that U2 was postponing their new release until 2009.  I didn't bother to report it here because it was depressing and frankly, ticked me off a bit at Bono (which is a first).  He says they're writing some great stuff and want to keep at it...whatever!  I had my calendar marked for Nov. 16 and depending on how the election goes may really need something to cheer me up that month.   Oh well.

BUT to counteract some of that disappointment, I just read over at Real Rock News about David Bowie's new project.  THANK YOU, DAVID!    You can read there for details.  Its going to be his 12 favorite songs that he's recorded and you can bet it won't be the typical hits most are familiar with.

If they are capable of doing what Bono basically said they would do, which was to make the best record of their career, then I'm all for it. I mean I would have loved for the album to come out this year, but if they're going to spend a little time to make it better then I guess I can weight. Didn't How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb come out around the last election? For some reason I recall buying that CD either on or around election day...

Hmmm... I typed in wait wrong before. I accidentily typed weight. I wonder what was on my mind...
