The Hollywood Reporter published a new interview with famed producer Steve Lillywhite. The interview mainly focuses on Lillywhite's upcoming releases and bands he's worked with lately - he talked about his working relationship with Dave Matthews, gave major props to Brandon Flowers and Jared Leto, and admitted he's still hoping for a job as a judge on a television talent show.  But the most revealing portion of the interview was Lillywhite's brief discussion of how he "got the U2 job" because of Martin Hannett:
