I don’t believe in painted roses or bleeding hearts While bullets rape the night of the merciful. — Bono

The Chevin

Wow. I’ve not felt like this since I first heard U2 in 1979. This group should go far if they don’t implode the way The Stone Roses did. They are that good in my opinion. But folks should make up their own mind. I know I’ll be picking up a copy of their CD. The […]
