Instead of making records, U2 are now serving on a board of directors for Fender Guitars. Which is fine--people have to eat and make deals and whatnot. But are they going to make cheaper models? Add computers? Do something about finally adding effects to the actual body of the guitar instead of making people buy expensive pedals?
For those of us who used to care, this is just another WTF moment. I do enjoy working out my issues here. And the NME is always there to oblige me with the same photo of the members of U2 in their tuxedos, not playing music again.
