The Edge Says That U2 Doesn't Want To Be A Heritage Act
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.13.2014



In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, U2's The Edge spoke about the band's future and says they don't want to be a "heritage act". Here are highlights:

On the band's future: "We don't want to ever be a heritage act. It might happen, but we'll go kicking and screaming into that mode. We feel the place for us to be is part of the conversation of contemporary culture and music and film and everything else, and we don't see the reason why we can't, because it's been possible for various artists in different forms. Frank Lloyd Wright, to the day he died, was designing the most incredible things we want to be part of that rather than grow old gracefully."

On providing a song for Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom: "When we got the call from Harvey to say, 'It's happening, are you in?,' it was like, 'Oh man, really? Now?' But we just had to do it, with the history that we have with the man and the cause."

On overcoming pressures of success: "We are designed to survive success. We've never had the attitude that a lot of bands did around our era, which was that the record business was the great Babylon and to be a collaborator was to compromise your values. We've always wanted to know the people in the label, the people representing what we do."
