Edge on Macphisto and Batman

| No Comments

As for Brian Eno, he's currently producing the next U2 album, due out this summer -- while the band itself, according to the Los Angeles Times, beats the bushes for financing for a tour it wants to mount in the spring of 1997, which it figures will cost nearly $100 million. U2 management would only say that no tour plans have been confirmed. The group is also nominated for two Grammy Awards this year for its contribution to the "Batman Forever" soundtrack, "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me." Here's U2 guitarist The Edge on why the band got involved in the soundtrack project in the first place.

THE EDGE, U2: One of the things that interested us about the project was Batman, the icon. And we wrote the song about the super heroes and the fact that they're the ultimate stars. So we wrote the song kind of about stardom. And when we were thinking about doing the video, it occurred to us that it was kind of interesting and legitimate to include some of the super hero characters that we've created along the way: Mephisto and the Fly. And we felt that the best way of doing that was animation.
