It wasn’t too long ago when you found you had an extra album in your iTunes music folder. An unexpected and unwanted album that you didn’t ask for and could not get rid of. Basically it amounted to musical spam and Apple had to set up a special website that users could visit to get rid of it, because you know, no one wanted the thing.
Well, now U2’s frontman Bono has come forward with an apology. In an interview on Facebook, Bono was quoted as saying, “Oops. Um. I’m sorry about that. I had this beautiful idea and we got carried away with ourselves. Artists are prone to that kind of thing. Drop of megalomania, touch of generosity, dash of self-promotion, and deep fear that these songs that we poured our life into over the last few years might not be heard.”
Okay it really doesn’t sound like much of an apology, but it will have to do. Remember Bono, (this goes for Apple too) people don’t want spam, even in musical form showing up on their devices out of nowhere. A free turd may be free, but it is still a turd. Sorry U2 fans. Most people did not like it one bit.
