Meeting U2 gave MacDonald a "strange feeling"

In an exclusive interview in today's Hot Press, Scottish singer/songwriter Amy MacDonald admits that meeting U2 gave her “a really strange feeling".

The Hot Press Newsdesk, 08 Apr 2010

MacDonald explains: “I was at a German awards ceremony and I came back to my dressing-room and there had been a note delivered to my room saying, 'Amy, come and say hello to your fan-club', and it was signed ‘Bono, Larry, the Edge and Adam’. For me, that was unbelievable. I spent some time with them in their dressing room before the show and they were just down to earth, and so nice.

“I’ve learned a lot from them,” she adds. “But if there was one thing that I would say was more important than the others, then that would be in how I talk to the people who buy my records.”
