^Did I ever mention that U2 spent some time in a house my great great grandfather designed?

https://www.thetimes...urs-lr2lr5hztph

 

"UNKNOWN to
fans who wait daily outside Bono’s south Dublin home for a glimpse of the U2
frontman, the band is recording their next album in a mansion across the road.
Strathmore, the former residence of the Canadian ambassador to Ireland, is one
of the country’s most expensive rental houses, costing €10,000 a month.
Fortunately for Bono, lead singer with a band whose net worth stands at more
than €619m, Strathmore is but a few steps across the road from his own house on
Vico Road in Killiney. He can leave his Maserati Quattroporte sedan at home and
walk to work. The Edge, U2’s guitarist, lives around the corner on Killiney
Hill Road. Strathmore was designed by Alfred Gresham Jones, the architect who
designed the National Concert Hall in Dublin. It was put up for sale by the
Canadian government in 2006 with an asking price of €17m. A campaign in Canada
protesting against the decision failed to have it reversed. Two years later,
having failed to sell the property, the Canadian government did a house swap
for No 22 Oakley Road in Ranelagh with Michael Roden, a property developer, who
paid an additional €3.01m as part of the transaction. When Bono appeared on the
season’s finale of the Late Late Show earlier this month, he said U2 was
recording its 13th album and claimed the band had done some of its best studio
work in more than three decades. Strathmore stands on nine acres overlooking
Killiney Bay, and features a rare eucalyptus plantation. Its livingroom
measures 58ft by 23ft, it features a wooden floor, coved ceiling and Portland
stone floors and doorframes. The 8,200 sq ft house was built in the 1860s for
William Henry, a retired wine merchant. The Canadian government bought it in
1956 for IR£20,300 (€25,800)."

Oh, remember seeing Canadian Government signs on that property when I was searching for Bono's gates. Haha, small world indeed, I remember too that you found documents about him (great great )? What a world.

That first single on the CBS label is so interesting. Sometime between Boy and War, Bono had to have had vocal training. His voice is so raw on those early singles. It amazes me, what I have in my record collection.

It is a resolution of mine to dive into my own record collection this year.

I am listening to hot air being forced through my duct work. The sound of sleep.

I had to google the inaccuracies of 'Bohemian Rhapsody' the movie so I could decipher fact from fiction but nothing really stops me from loving the movie. I put it on last night, second time, and watched it from start to finish. I guess Ichiroya, my favourite kimono resale shop had pointed out how very popular it has been in Japan,people have seen it 18 times. Dressing up a la picture show style. I searched all my collections for Mr. Bad Guy butt I must have never come across it. I guess I will have to YouTube until I can find a copy.

I pulled out my LiveAid DVDs to watch their performance. The movie left out some songs but it was spot on. The fans really did all that stuff... he really did accost that cameraman. Hahaha, fantastic!!!

Edit here. I guess the Japanese appreciate how he "rocks" a kimono ( juban).

I keep watching Live Aid. The 80s were amazing. Completely embarrassing but I completely envy them and love the fucking terrible haircuts and oh, the clothes. What happens?!
