In U2 and Bono news, the Twitter account Super70sSports sent out this non-sports related tweet recently but man is it a homer! The tweet showcases a rejection letter from one of the A&R over at the now-defunct RSO Records. RSO Records was a record label formed by Robert Stigwood and Al Coury in 1973. The label was absorbed into PolyGram in the early to mid-eighties and is now currently owned by the Universal Music Group. U2 singer Bono reveals disturbing doctor news.
Here, in a reply letter sent to ‘Mr. P. Hewson’ A.K.A. Bono, the aforementioned A&R person, named Alexander Sinclair explains why he felt, at this particular moment in time that U2 wasn’t the proper fit for the label.
“Dear Mr. Hewson,
Thank you for submitting your tape of ‘U2’ to RSO, we have listened with careful consideration, but feel it is not suitable for us at present.
We wish you luck with your future career.
To which the Twitter account gave this humorous response: “Sinclair, did Bono write you a letter five years ago asking us to sign U2?”
“I … I don’t … that’s … well … I don’t recall anything like that, sir.”
We understand that it’s not the easiest thing in the world to pick out talent but something tells us that Mr. Sinclair is probably kicking himself right now. Bono recently revealed U2 bandmate toilet video.
In other news regarding Bono and U2, fans of the popular Irish rock group recently took to social media to reflect on the group’s debut album, Boy. One fan wrote: “I will never forget the 1st time I heard of U2. My friend had a birthday party and received Boy on the cassette. It was 1980 and I was 10. I remember studying the front of that cassette, the black and white stretched faces and the mysterious name, U2. It would be at least 3 years before I actually saw a picture of them when October came out. They were mysterious and seemed to hold secrets.
Brad Pitt looks ‘miserable’ with Bono at this U2 show. The fan continued: I mean, what an absolutely perfect concept album. The moments of late childhood, the scary and exciting days before a boy becomes a man. For a kid who was in those exact moments, Boy played like a script and seemed to me, not preconceived in any way but organic in some mysterious way. There is no way any artist could consciously attempt to capture the essence found in Boy. U2 could never repeat this. They would have other achievements, but nothing as thematic or organic as Boy. Boy is one of the most interesting moments of rock music and should be seen as a turning point for a genre that had rarely achieved this type of unconscious realism.
