When Rolling Stone’s Brian Hiatt hit the road with U2 to report on U2360°, the biggest tour in history for our new issue, he also got the band to open up about their next project — an album called Songs of Ascent — and the future of the songs for Bono and the Edge’s Spider-Man musical. Bono also revealed how the band views its haters (”They’re in the pub going, ‘I can’t stand him look at his fucking head on him. Look at the head on him. Who does he think he is? Fucking Jesus’ “) and told an awesome story about the unlikely meeting of Jay-Z and James Bond at a posh Monte Carlo restaurant. Read the Q&A here:
