U2 Was #1 and Changed So They Could Stay There
Paul David Hewson, aka "Bono," and U2 came to play for me.
We agreed to meet in the Houston Astrodome.
It was October 1992 and U2 was on their Zoo TV tour.
It was amazing.
They rocked the house, the dome, the trailers, and the roller coasters and everything in between.
It was a powerful experience. Bono was barely 32 at the time. Five years prior, at the tender age of 27, Rolling Stone Magazine had already called his band "Superstars."
They've now sold a mere 170 million albums (are they still called albums?) and won 22 Grammys so far. More than any other band.
In 2005 they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in their first year of eligibility.
And you're trying to tell me you can't change? How many records do you want to set?
I'm ready for the laughing gas
I'm ready for what's next
I'm ready to duck
I'm ready to dive
I'm ready to say
I'm glad to be alive
I'm ready for the push
In the cool of the night
In the warmth of the breeze
I'll be crawling around
On my hands and knees
She's Just down the line...Zoo Station
Got to make it on time...Zoo Station
I'm ready for the gridlock
To take it to the street
I'm ready for the shuffle
Ready for the deal
Ready to let go of the steering wheel
Ready for the crush
She's just down the line... Zoo Station
Got to make it on time... Zoo Station
Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright
It's alright... it's alright... it's alright... It's alright
Hey baby... hey baby... hey baby... hey baby...
It's alright, it's alright
(Alright, you can turn it up)
Time is a train
Makes the future the past
Leaves you standing in the station
Your face pressed up against the glass
I'm just down the line from your love... Zoo Station
You know I'm under the sign... Zoo Station
I've got to make it on time
Make it on time... Zoo Station
I'm gonna be there... Zoo Station
Tracing the line... Zoo Station
That's alright... Zoo Station
Just two stops down the line... Zoo Station
Just a stop down the line...
