U2 "Songs of Innocence," Apple, and the Future of Music – Live at Hales

U2

Are we hearing the beginning of the end of U2? Whether they wanted it or not 500 million people became instantaneous owners of U2's latest release "Songs of Innocence" through the latest promotional effort of Apple. What do we love and hate about U2? Is giving away their album a corporate promotion tool, an extreme act of hubris, or an indication of the much industry's future?

In this lively discussion at Hale's Ales Brewery and Pub we review U2's newest album, where it sits in the U2 canon, and the controversy surrounding corporations choosing the music that appears on our playlists.

With host Dr. Jeff Keuss, and a panel that includes Jennie Spohr, Jeffrey Overstreet and Pickwick's Galen Disston.
