In his letter Bono remembers the conversation Kendrick and him had before videotaping their cooperation. Check out complete letter listed below.
I liked your team when we did the opening of The GRAMMYs. They were shit warm and arranged. It was a ballet, it was an opera, it was blend between hip jump as well as rock ‘n’ roll but it was not complication.
The enjoyable we carried AMERICAN spirit was singing «You are rock and roll» to you … because you are. And also a lot even more.
There’s an exemplary rage that is tough to suggest with. Oh yep, there’s a righteous punch that might remove a much larger man, oh yep.
For a moment, any one of us can be that hand. We do not have it, it has us. Yet I would not want to get in the way of it.
The fact that you’re spirited, self-deprecating, along with revelatory is a note to self. I asked you at the time if you would certainly rap about where America was at, and your reply was to rap about where America isn’t at. Smart.
I really hope one day to learn more about you much better.
I hope when these years quit fleing … perhaps they’ll run towards us.
Love and also pizza,
