Be sure to check out U2’s new album “Live at Red Rocks

Mark Kilmer has the Sunday morning talk show lineup and I have to poke fun at his attempt to be hip:

Host Tim Russert will talk to Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld about Iraq. And Bono, the lead singer for the British rock band U2: “Sunday, Bloody Sunday.” (His cause is Africa.)
Ahem. Well, the Irish band U2 has had a couple of hits in the two decades since “Sunday Bloody Sunday.” We’re living in the 21st century now, Mark. Get with the times.

In my humble estimation, Eric, the last hip U2 album was 1983's War (Two Hearts Beat as One, Sunday Bloody Sunday, New Year's Day. Beginning with that gawdawful live album, Under a Blood Red Sky, the got real old real fast.

This evening, though, I listened to a Swedish composer named Oscar Bystrom. No one's heard of him, but he's very good... and he's a Swede.
