More on Glastonbury

The Rolling Stone bonus article called Bono Storms Back has some additional information from the horse's mouth about the Christian legend referenced in the new song "Glastonbury." Bono explains the legend and comments that it's "so seventies" -- and indeed, if you think about it, there is maybe a little Spinal Tap vibe with the holy grails and mystic trees and all. (HT M2.)

[Edit: Incidentally, while we're talking about this song, if anyone out there has a suggestion as to whether some specific text is being referenced by the line about "celtic saint[s]" with "a thought worth keeping: Even in your dreams you can't be sleeping," I'm all ears. ]
