Name that band...
A fun video by U2, for their "Window to the Sky" single, featuring an incredible number of appearances by various artists... and very cleverly edited:




OH!!!! And, via beizy a great article on Billy and Beecake - and he shows the reporter pictures of baby Jack, on his cell phone!!! *squees and dies of the thought of the cuteness* *G*

Oh, and lilith? They mention Jared Leto... in a list of 10 actor/singers... Small world.

The article is here: http://www.eveningtimes.co.uk/features/display.var.1141008.0.0.php

Cool video! Doesn't sound much like U2 though--sounds more like Bono singing a Travis song. Or am I just biased? ;) hehe

Wow... just wow.

As a broadcasting major with and editing jones, that was perfect.
As a fan, that was beautiful.

I loved that they were in the audience. That's the coolest thing I've seen in quite some time.

It helped to show Keith Moon. *sigh* I love him.

Wow... that was just fantastic.

Thank you for putting that up.

Wait... when you say you loved that "they were in the audience", do you mean that you loved the audience shots... or is there actually a part where members of U2 are shown in the audience (whether for real, or added in)? If it's the latter, I had no idea - do you remember which part?

Yes, amazing job with the lip-synching, and picking various shots; ditto with the instrumental parts.

Yeah there is one shot of Bono in the audience with about 10 people around him, a close up of The Edge, and one of the other boys... The quality was. *goes to look at it again.*

Bono is at 3:28
Larry (I think) at 3:33
The Edge at 3:51
Edge again at 3:57, black scull cap.
I'm sure Adam is in there somewhere, but I can't see him with youtube quality...

Have fun on the U2 hunt!

Yay! Well, he is the first person in a looong while to make a success of going from actor to musician, although going in the reverse direction's a lot more common

I'm hoping that mean man has Ali and wee Jack with him at ORC so we'll finally get some photos of the lad. He has to be beautiful - look at his parents!

I hope you get to go, Ros, so you can take loverly photos. :-)

And I agree with lilithlotr, I wish they would have mentioned that Beecake have a great sound! They aren't just a band with an actor, nor is Billy just an actor with a band - they are a band, a really good band. I did like finding out that BJ and John have been friends with Billy since their teens and that they were in his bands from his pre-acting days.
