This afternoon.

Bono’s 40-chapter (!) memoir called Surrenderis due out on November 1.

Bono sez:

“When I started to write this book, I was hoping to draw in detail what I’d previously only sketched in songs. The people, places, and possibilities in my life. Surrender is a word freighted with meaning for me.

“Growing up in Ireland in the seventies with my fists up (musically speaking), it was not a natural concept. A word I only circled until I gathered my thoughts for the book. I am still grappling with this most humbling of commands. In the band, in my marriage, in my faith, in my life as an activist. Surrender is the story of one pilgrim’s lack of progress. . . With a fair amount of fun along the way.”

Bono wins the 2021 J. William Fulbright Prize for International Understanding from The Fulbright Association.

Starts at 1 hr, 20 seconds.

Bono said:

“After January 6th in this city, I sensed a of mood of grief. Some spoke of the American dream dying on the steps of the Capitol that chilling day. But it was it was not the American dream that was dying. The American dream was alive.It was a death of a generation’s innocence.”

Riight.

Of Putin, he said:

“He is done. He is not just a tyrant. He is like a bad Bond villain.”

Last night.

Speaking on N.O.R.E.’s Drink Champs podcast, [legendary New York rapper] DMX began to preview his new album. He’s got some notable guests, including Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Alicia Keys, and Usher. Perhaps most surprising was when he proclaimed:

“I got Bono — the U2 n***a.”

…the Bono song is called “Skyscrapers.” “Shit’s crazy. It got a Miami feel to it,” DMX teased.

Of Bono’s part he said:

“All muthafuckas need to do is listen to it, and we good.”

Fair enough.

No need for the language.
