Default Pumpkins, Grammy Awards & Bono

Was reading the Sunday review of U2's album Zooropa the other day on Pitchfork (that whole Sunday classic album review thing they do makes for some interesting reads from time to time) and that review mentioned that Zooropa bested Pumpkins and more for a Grammy back in 1994.

Enter rabbit hole!

That led me to this page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grammy...ic_Album#1990s

Insane that SP lost out for Best Alternative album in 94, 97 and 99. I love "Odelay" as much as the next guy, but come on - that over MCIS is a BIG reach.

Also, found this clip that I don't think I had ever seen or heard discussed despite now 25 years of obsessive viewing of everything related to SP ever. Don't think he's being facetious, it seems like a sincere, (pseudo?) self-disparaging compliment from Bono:

Good detective work - I never heard that speech either. Yeah it’s all political anyway this Grammy, Rock and roll HOf, music biz shit, etc

Was that the one where he said "fuck up the mainstream"?

Bono's best speech was this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FGEM_qgtv_E

Bono was definitely a fan.

Among those attending the band's final shows in Europe were a bevy of international celebrities, including U2 singer Bono. "I'm kind of sad and a bit cross to see them pack it in," Bono said. "I was reminded how much their music moves me. Billy has that sort of fetal cry in his music, yet beneath all the thrash and search-and-destroy metal you find these beautiful snapshots that are very emotional. I told Billy, `What are you doing, letting this go?' This is a real group. The four personalities really balance each other. It's really hard to find a group like that. You can't make them. You have to grow them, and now one of the best is gone."

They thank Billy in the liner notes for All That You Can't Leave Behind. Billy mentioned it on Instagram some time ago. I actually enjoy that album (last U2 album I dug) and never knew that.

ATYCLB has its moments but is mostly too M.O.R. for me

Atomic Bomb at least goes all out in its embrace of full-on 2000s U2 bacchanalia
