Bono says music is very girly now

Bono has said that music "has gotten very girly" in recent years, with hip-hop serving as "the only place for young male anger at the moment".

Camera IconIn his interview with Rolling Stone, U2 frontman Bono opens up about the state of his band, the state of the world and what he learned from nearly dying.

Bono also mentioned the near-death experience, or "extinction event", to the magazine, saying that "it was physical for me", but not specifying the details.

As for his own band's music, Bono revealed that a part of U2's latest inspiration was a near-death experience that singer had.

Bono adds that he discovers a lot of new music through his children. "And, yes, it was physical for me, but I think I have spared myself all that soap opera", Bono told Rolling Stone. "Grace and some really clever people got me through, and my faith is strong".

"This political apocalypse was going on in Europe and in America, and it found a ideal rhyme with what was going on in my own life", he said. "Then, the artist who will make you sign up is actually more valuable. artists that have a connection with you and your life, you pay for the subscription service".

Talking about the biking accident, he says: "The thing that shook me was that I didn't remember it". That was the most frightening thing that could happen to me because I am in pain.

"People have had so much worse to deal with, so that is another reason not to talk about it". It's become nearly a monthly ritual (daily if you're a Gallagher brother): musicians including Damon Albarn, Gene Simmons, everyone in Kasabian, the late Lemmy Kilmister [Iron Maiden], Flea, all lamenting the fact that people, fans, the industry, have moved on.

The U2 frontman voiced the opinion during a new interview, with the 57-year-old lamenting the lack of "young male anger" in rock music in 2017. I didn't think I had a fear of a fast exit.

"But I was not that guy".

In 2000, Bono - whose real name is Paul Hewson - was checked for throat cancer after a specialist wanted to take a biopsy, which thankfully came back negative. I just didn't want to have to find out outside of a mental excursion.
