Ultimate Revenge I ALMOST CHOKED ON MY CE- real when I read Emma Stone’s interview [RS 784] – more specifically, the part where she said she’d been told she was hindering the process of making a movie by voicing her opinion. How on earth could the opinion of a strong, confident woman be dismissed in such a way? Oh, that’s right, I forgot – it happens every day, in every corner of the world. Her success is the ultimate answer to all the chauvinist pigs who’ve treated this incredible actor in such a disrespectful manner. May their careers be over soon. Carla Bettens Mona Vale, NSW Separated at Birth COULDN’T HELP BUT NOTICE when looking at the front cover of the Feb issue just how much Ryan Adams looks like Jason Bateman (or is…

U2’s Special Delivery The Edge performed U2’s “Pride (In the Name of Love)” at the Women’s March in L.A. Five days earlier, Bono (pictured with wife Ali Hewson at Paris Fashion Week) also displayed his humanity by sending pizzas to fans in Dublin waiting all night for tickets to the Joshua Tree tour. Monáe’s Moment Janelle Monáe stepped out in L.A., where she’s on the awards-show circuit for her roles in Moonlight and Hidden Figures. But she’s not giving up music: “There will be a new album. I don’t know when.” Isbell Cranks the Volume Jason Isbell’s dark 2015 album, Something More Than Free, was one of the best alt-country LPs in years. But he wants to have more fun on the follow-up, which he’s been recording in Nashville with producer Dave Cobb (right). “The…

how u2 got back to ‘the joshua tree’

MIDWAY THROUGH 2016, U2 FACED AN UNCLEAR FU- ture. They had cut their highly successful Innocence + Experience Tour short in order to work on their next album, Songs of Experience, which was nearly finished. But they eventually decided that the material they had recorded didn’t properly address the chaos of current events, from the rise of Donald Trump to England’s separation from the European Union. “We realised that we needed to put the album on ice for a minute to really think about it,” says guitarist the Edge. “The world is a different place now, and we needed the opportunity to reconsider everything.” Instead, U2 decided to mark the 30th anniversary of 1987’s The Joshua Tree – the album that catapulted them from arena act into the biggest band…

tim rogers’ top five

Jeffrey Bernard Jeffrey wrote a column called “Low Life” in the British Spectator magazine from the mid-Seventies. I came to him via the Keith Waterhouse play Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell, though to be true, more because my hero Peter O’Toole played him in the original stage version. Though they’ve been described as “suicide notes in weekly instalments” I find his anecdotes from a life among the demi-monde of London’s Soho district to be like the skin of fat on the top of a neglected stew. The suety gloop is the succulence and squander from a life fully lived. He can be boorish but never a bore. His tales from the gutter were often lit by the stars and gave more to me than a hundred grandiloquent social commentaries. The column is…

mayer’s heartbreak diary

‘THE ONES THAT DESTROY ME are the ones I like best,” says John Mayer, sitting next to a massive recording console at Los Angeles’ Capitol Studios. He just blasted “Still Feel Like Your Man”, one of more than 30 songs he wrote beginning in late 2014, during a period of “intense sadness”. He had recently split up with his on-again, off-again girlfriend Katy Perry and was going through some deep soul-searching, which yielded his most emotionally revealing music yet. “It’s beyond a breakup record,” he says of The Search for Everything. “It’s about me. Proudly, it is, as my therapist says, a study into the metaphysics of absent love.” Mayer says he was looking for a change after 2013’s Paradise Valley, the second in a pair of more low-key Americana albums.…
