Wow man, I bet you didn't expect some of these replies! Near-death experiences are exactly what ATS has always been about. It's one of those subjects ATSers have traditionally been interested in.
It's a pity Bono barely mentions it in the link and offers no details at all.
His 'girly' comments show he's fallen for the generation gap thing like everyone does eventually. "Kids of today don't know what real music is! Oh it was so much better in my day!! We had proper music then!"
As far as his music, listen to their first few albums like Joshua Tree; much better than his recent stuff.
None of that is unusual or makes him special.
Instead of slagging on the Bono of now try seeing life through his eyes?
He grew up poor-ish. Lived in the neighborhood with the highest heroin usage. Saw friends fall to it. Was forced into a religious school due to being poor-ish. Indoctrinated into that belief, used it as a source for his only way out: music.
That's what bono is doing, using "girly" as if it's a derogatory term. We're calling him out on it.
But be haters. Talk smack.
