Confirms what I thought already. We need more men to stop making music.

Michael Flatley’s autobiography is amazing, he’s the most charmless and arrogant man in the world, which makes for hilarious reading.

I saw him in Lord of the Dance a couple of years back, it’s an impressive show, he only does one appearance a week now because he can’t keep up anymore, just came out at the end and did a jig, the rest of the crowd went fucking mad, women literally climbing out of their row screaming at him, was brilliant.

Bono and The Edge have their money squirrelled away separately abroad. This entry is for Adam Clayton and the drummer, who as we all know are a single being.
