Watched U2 last night.  They were great – and it was like a trip down memory lane.  But there was no convincing my kids that they were relevant or great.  Watched Coldplay tonight – what a difference.  Relevant and exciting.  And my nine year  old was kind in making her allowances for U2 last night – and my identification with them.

I’ve grown up with U2, Bono, the Edge etc.  They are a phenomenon.  And they pack in the stadia with people who want to see the phenomenon.  Fantastic songs such as ‘Where the streets have no name‘ and fantastic renditions of same.  But…tempus fugit.

And the same will happen Coldplay.

Enjoy the moment.  By all means relive the moment.  But don’t be confused.
