'I'm just so embarrassed': Bono really isn't U2's biggest fan

U2 may be one of the biggest rock bands on the planet, but its lead singer Bono is harboring some grievances around the group’s name and the songs he’s written and performed throughout their 46 years together.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter’sAwards Chatter” pódcast, alongside U2’s lead guitarist The Edge, the Irish singer reflected on the genesis of the band and revealed that he has never liked their namedespite its instantly recognizable nature.
When The Edge revealed that he and Bono didn’t warm to U2 as a name at first, his bandmate chimed in to say: “I still don’t. I really don’t. I was late into some kind of dyslexiaI didn’t realize that The Beatles was a bad pun either.
    Bono toldAwards Chatter” que “in our head, it was like the spy plane, era… a U-boat, it was futuristic. But then, as it turned out to imply this kind of acquiescence, No, I don’t like that name. I still don’t really like the name.
      He claimed it was their first manager, Paul McGuinness, who said it was a great name which would look good on a T-shirt, convincing the group to stick with U2.
        Of U2’s early works, such as the album “Chico,” Bono said the band sounds incredible, but he struggles to listen to the songs because he finds his own voicevery strained” y “not macho” — which he said was damaging for what he called his ownIrish macho.
        I’ve been in a car when one of our songs has come on the radio and I’ve been the color ofscarlet. I’m just so embarrassed. I do think U2 pushes out the boat on embarrassment quite a lot,” Bono said.
          Bono revealed that he wasn’t the only one critical of his voice.
          He recounted a tale in which the late singer Robert Palmerperhaps best known for the hitAddicted to Love” — said to U2 bassist Adam Clayton in the 1980s: “Dios, would you ever tell your singer to just take down the keys a little bit? He’d do himself a favor, his voice a favor, and he’d do us all a favor who have to listen to him.
            Bono added that he feels like heonly became a singer recently” y eso “maybe it hasn’t happened yet for some people’s ears.
            Considering U2 are one of the most successful and most popular bands in the world, there are bound to be plenty of fans who won’t agree with Bono’s verdict on his voice or the group’s famous namebut at least they can listen to his songs more than the creator himself can.
