Bono and The Edge Really Going Forward With Spiderman Musical






In a video interview for the forthcoming Broadway show's website, U2's Bono and The Edge talked at length about what exactly compelled them to begin work on Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark. The bespectacled frontman explains: "We were open to the idea of musical theater, but Spider-Man, that’s a different thing again, because that’s comic books, and there’s a whole series of relations between punk rock and rock bands and comic books, that goes back years.” The Edge, who seems to really connect with Peter Parker's plight, revealed a bit of psychic scar tissue, saying, “every rock & roll star probably started out as the geek who got bullied on in school, and eventually their form of revenge was to write songs or learn to play guitar.” This prompted his bandmmate to make the following joke, one which explains much of Bono's sartorial choices over the past three decades: “I was more of a Green Goblin." We smell intraband strife of epic, blockbuster proportions. (via RS)
