Now’s your chance to ask it. On The Album Archive this Sunday night at 10pm, Derek will be featuring an exclusive interview with Paul McGuinness on the 20th anniversary of the release of The Joshua Tree. Questions for the great man should go to webmaster[at]phantom.ie. Personally, I’ve always wondered when exactly the Edge deigns to remove his hat — at home, in bed, never? Ok, not a Joshua Tree question admittedly, but intriguing nonetheless…
After the jump is the official press release about the show.
Interesting to think that it’s also coming up to the 20th anniversary of another landmark album — Straight Outta Compton by NWA. Very different records, I think it would be fair to conclude.
Two videos from da boyz below…
