U2’S THE JOSHUA TREE TO ENTER THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS

Rock and Roll Hall of Famers U2 can add another impressive accolade to their already extensive list of accomplishments now that the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry will induct their 1987 album The Joshua Tree. According to the organization’s website, the U2 album was chosen because it was deemed “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant” and represents “an important part of America’s culture and history.” Additional music masterpieces selected for induction include Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Fortunate Son,” Linda Ronstadt’s Heart Like a Wheel album, Isaac Hayes’ Theme From Shaft album and Elmore James’ “Dust My Broom.”

Some of the acts scheduled to perform at the event billed as a “10-day summer extravaganza” include Black Sabbath, Soundgarden, Motorhead and Neil Young and Crazy Horse. Black Sabbath singer Ozzy Osbourne said of playing on the hallowed grounds of Hyde Park, “The first time I came to London I didn’t have a pot to piss in and I spent the advance I got for the first album on a new pair of shows and some Brut aftershave.
