Long Time No Write

I've  not updated this blog for a long time purely because U2 has been in hibernation from public view. There was a big bit of news recently though, the band's fifth member, manager Paul McGuinness, stepped down from managing the band and sold Principle Management to Live Nation. Guy Oseary takes over as manager. I can see why Paul, in his mid-60's now wants to step back.  It is a major change for a band that is a creature of habit, I'm not sure what it will mean for the future. It could mean that U2 gets revitalised, more in sync with its fans (it's a long time since they were!) and take some risks. Or, equally, it could be the beginning of the end if they band can't adapt to the changes.  Time will tell, but my feeling is that it will be the latter, the band seems to have lost it's fire and creativity over the last few years and I'm not sure they can retrieve that.

Meanwhile, fans are patiently waiting for the next album that has been the usual stop-go-stop-go palaver re release. It'll come - eventually.
