Bono on Worship

I recently re-read this quote from Bono in Reggie Kidd's "With One Voice."  I had encountered it before but forgotten about it.  Put on your rock-star sunglasses and see what you think:
"Music is Worship; whether it's worship of women or their designer, the world or its destroyer, whether it comes from that ancient place we call soul or simply the spinal cortex, whether the prayers are on fire with a dumb rage or dove-like desire ... the smoke goes upwards ... to God or something you replace God with ... usually yourself."
The excerpt is originally from Bono's preface to a 1999 Book of Psalms.  You can read more here:
