Bono Thinks Music Is Too "Girly" Now, And I Think Bono Should Stop Talking

If you thought we were going to be be able to kiss this awful, dumpster fire of a year goodbye without another set of misogynistic quotes from a misguided celebrity, you thought wrong. Squeaking in just under the wire, Bono sat down with Rolling Stone to give an interview that is, well, actually a very fitting end for 2017 when you think about it. In addition to opening up about his near-death experience, the U2 frontman also discussed why he thinks it's sad that male musicians no longer have an outlet for their rage. And why is that? Well, apparently because women know how to dominate the charts now, too. "I think music has gotten very girly," he said. "And there are some good things about that, but hip-hop is the only place for young male anger at the moment - and that's not good. When I was 16, I had a lot of anger in me.

Röck Read Röund-Up

As I mentioned way back on this post from 2008, as much as I’ve tried to branch out, my tastes are pretty narrow when it comes to reading material.

I’d love to say that I’m broadly well-read when it comes to the more celebrated books of the day, but it’s just not true. If you’re looking to engage in a discussion about today’s most incisive fiction, you’re much better off speaking with my wife (who works in publishing) than one such as I. Truthfully, I’ve pretty much lost my taste for fiction almost entirely. Unless I have some vested interest (like, say, I know the author or it’s about something near and dear to me), I usually cannot muster up the interest to crack the binding.

As a result, whenever I’m perusing through the aisles of a bookstore (when I can still find one,

Pearl Jam, Radiohead And Nine Other Surefire Rock And Roll Hall Of Famers

Green Day, Kid Rock and Coldplay also seem like locks for the Hall, in Bigger Than the Sound.

On Tuesday, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame unveiled the nominees for induction in 2011, a list that's as inspiring (Beastie Boys! Tom Waits! Dr. John!) as it is mystifying (LL Cool J?).

Not surprisingly, this year's noms sparked a whole lot of debate — because kvetching about the Rock Hall is an exercise as old as the Hall itself — and for most of the day, I was ready to lend my voice to the argument. After all, any Hall of Fame that does not include among its ranks the likes of Kiss, Rush, Cheap Trick or Def Leppard (or even Joy Division, the Replacements, Hüsker Dü,

Salvatores looks to helm 'Dionisio'

Salvatores looks to helm 'Dionisio'
ROME -- Italian director Gabriele Salvatores has optioned rights to the novel La Scala di Dionisio (Dionysus' Staircase) by Italian author Luca di Fulvio for his next project. Described by Salvatores (Mediterraneo, Nirvana) and producing partner Maurizio Totti of Colorado Films as a period sci-fi thriller in the vein of Blade Runner, the story is set in London on New Year's Eve 1899. Investigator Germinal Milton, while battling his own chemical dependencies, is called into action on the eve of the millennium after a serial killer unleashes his instincts on the wives of a number of rich businessmen. The novel was published by Mondadori and Colorado Noir, the publishing arm of Colorado films, and will be adapted by Salvatores and Carla Vangelista. Salvatores' most recent project, Quo Vadis Baby?, has earned €1.7 million ($2 million) and has been in the top 10 at the Italian boxoffice since its release six weeks ago. No casting has been set for the film, which will be shot in English. Totti said he is eyeing a budget of €30 million ($36 million).
