U2: Where the Questions Evoked No Real News

U2 did a Facebook Live chat on Thursday afternoon in conjunction with the 30th anniversary of the release of The Joshua Tree.

The 14-minute chat concentrated solely on the making of the album and what songs from it they are looking to perform on the tour this year, with no mention of the progress of their next album, Songs of Experience.

They did however, have two video questions sent in by a pair of famous folks whose first name is Chris.

Comedian Chris Rock -- Chris from New Jersey -- asked, "What song are you mad you didn't put on the album?" The Edge said "Heartland," which ended up on Rattle & Hum. And for Bono it was "Walk to the Water," "Luminous Times" and "Sweetest Thing."

Chris Martin from Coldplay -- Chris from Devon, England -- cracked the band up when he asked: "Who is you and why can't you live with him or without him?" And, "Did you write 'Running to Standstill' about the rise of the treadmill and the gym culture. And, do you think in a way, The Joshua Tree predicted that sedentary mobility movement?"
