Kris July 19, 2017 Blog, Music News Comments Off on The Edge from U2 recounts his first experience with magic mushrooms

U2 is currently on tour behind the 30th anniversary of their landmark album ‘The Joshua Tree’ and while chatting with Zane Lowe on Beats 1, Edge talked about a crazy moment he had with magic mushrooms. Bono, talking about the past, said “there were no drugs” but then Edge corrected him

“Well, this was a bit later, but I ahd one funny moment with the mushrooms. This was a metaphysical experiment, you understand? it was very spiritual”

“I took a few, waited 40 minutes, nothing happened” explaining that he had been offered ‘srhooms at bassist Adam Clayton’s house “So I doubled, trebled down. It’s even worse because I actually went to bed”

“So I’m in the middle of a dark room watching firework displays that are happening in my imagination. Then I started to understand the secrets of the universe. I had this moment of insight and was I was thinking to myself ‘I will never remember these tomorrow, I have to record these insights’. So I crawled across the floor, which took me about 25 minutes and got to my recording walkman, got back to my bed, hit play and then the red light came on so I spent another 25 minutes looking at the red light”
