Bono says he agreed with the terrible reviews for Spider-Man on Broadway, for which he wrote the score along with The Edge.
“It might have been a little hard for some other people around here to take that, but we dont disagree with the New York Times,” Bono tells “Nightlines” Cynthia McFadden. “Thats the sort of stuff we were saying backstage.”
Among those who did not believe bad reviews? Former director Julie Taymor, who was forced out.”Julie would not accept this. She got very close to it, so close, perhaps, that she couldn’t see it. We were going out and coming back and we could see very clearly what we thought were the problems and she didn’t think they were as big a problem as we did.”
