U2 were awarded the 'The Greatest Act of the Last 25 Years' in an online poll celebrating Q Magazines 25 year anniversary at the Q Awards overnight. The entire band turned out at the awards with Edge doing a short interview. Historically, Q has always been in the U2 camp when other elements of the UK music press have not always been quite so positive about U2's commercial success and size.
As a part of the Achtung Baby re-release Q have a U2 cover story in their October edition as well as a cover CD, 'AHK-toong BAY-bi Covered' . The CD has a wide array of bands and performers performing Achtung Baby tracks. CD's accompanying Q magazine releases are typically available in Australia/NZ when the magazine eventually comes out downunder a few months later. If you want the disc and don't want to risk missing out you can buy copies from the U2.comshop.
