Bono gets all Literary About the Spider-Man Musical

Posted by Jason Diamond

Bono likes to drop names from his expensive book/art collection when he’s talking about his really expensive musical:

“We’re wrestling with the same stuff as Rilke, Blake, ‘Wings of Desire,’ Roy Lichtenstein, the Ramones — the cost of feeling feelings, the desire for connections when you’re separate from others,” Bono continued. “If the only wows you get from ‘Spider-Man’ are visual, special-effect, spectacular-type wows, and not wows from the soul or the heart, we will all think that we’ve failed.”  (Via NY Times)
