U2 New Year's Day

Monday, January 01, 2007 | 05:00 PM

We've touched upon U2 several times on recent years -- most especially the alleged theft and subsequent release on the P2P networks of U2's last album, "How To Dismantle an Atomic Bomb."

So instead of a rant, we simply present a fitting song for today . . .


If you get a chance to catch the next U2 tour, its highly recommended. I saw them last year at Madison Square Garden (11/22/05) --  Great show!

All That You Can't Leave Behind

The Joshua Tree

Rattle and Hum [LIVE]

Achtung Baby

The Unforgettable Fire

In the linked posting, written in 2004, you make the following statements:

If the U2 CD sells big, expect to see a spate of other "stolen" master recordings subsequently showing up online.

The only question is how long will it takes before some label hires a P2P savvy label exec. Once the labels finally wake up to what Clearchannel has done to their business model, they can finish off radio's slow death and move fully into the digital age.

So my question is: It's been two years. How did these predictions turn out?
