U2 frontman Bono discussed listening to Oasis with his son Elijah in a new interview with the BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show.
“I mean he listens to … I mean Elijah’s been, I’ve just been going through the 90s with him. Noel Gallagher, Stone Roses, Oasis, all that. He’s rediscovering that and I’m rediscovering it with him. On vinyl.”
And the ‘With or Without You’ hitmaker – whose real name is Paul Hewson – also credited his four children for helping him through “house parties”, as he admits they’re better at planning the events than he is.
Asked where he keeps his record player and what he uses it for, Bono said: “It’s in our kitchen. So is Edge’s. At home we do have house parties, though some of the better ones are now done by my sons and daughters. But we’ve been playing all kinds of things. Yesterday we listened to the new Eagles album. I’m not talking about the Californian band, but I think they’re from Leeds, maybe. I think they’re from the UK, which was really great.”
He also discussed his children’s partying.
“We at home do have house parties still. Some of the better ones are now done by my sons and daughters,” Bono said. “We’ve been playing all kinds of things. Yesterday we listened to the new Eagulls album. I’m not talking about the Californian band, I think they’re from Leeds maybe. [It was] really great.”
