Totally Disgraceful......

Recommended Posts

the thing is i've been to see Radiohead, R.E.M Simple Minds (well now that Jim Kerr has stopped ranting...lol) and some other bands you could say have a "political conciense" but you dont get the preaching from them as much as you do from Bono and i really do think he has seriously damaged u2 over the years with it all.

Really I'm happy for Bono to meet with World Leaders, but FFS do it in private. No cameras! Bono doesn't need photos with arseholes like Bush and Blair. Larry was right. They have a hundred songs that cut deeper with people than anything Bono could preach about. I blame Geldof and his influence on Bono. He's fucked up both Hutchence and Bono now.

I still love em and therefore I find it very hard to poor shit on the band. I think Bono needs to talk to Larry urgently.

agreed.....i think Bono fucked everything up when he appeared everywhere.......with bush blair the labour party conferance preaching on tour i mean i believe he went to the opening of a crisp packet once.......

 

i think Larry needs to boot Bono right in the balls and say "we got together to make music"........

 

It's funny though Bash, the last album worked out fine for me, and I know you loved it to.

 

But if you married a beautiful woman, with an awesome job, who could cook you the best meal in the world but treated you like shit, then the romance would wear off.

 

I freaking love U2, loved them every day since I was 10 years old, but it's now hit the point where that means absolutely nothing to them. And that sucks.

 

And I kinda get the feeling that if Larry and the other two really gave a shit they would have told Bon Bon to shut the fuck up and stop hanging out with the devil about 10 years ago.

Bash we come here because we a real fans.  Yes i said it folks. The people in here tonight are the biggest realest fans U2 has ever had.

 

That's why we're here right now.

 

And that's why we're so pissed off.

 

Why do I personally still come here? Because in my heart of hearts I'm still a die-hard u2 fan, and a sucker enough to want my free CD and my email address.

There's also still some lovely folk in here to chat to. and I enjoy that.

 

But realistaically you can chat anywhere on the net can't you?

 

Bono is personally responsible for doing some serious damage to the bands legacy, and I find it so sad to think that the greatest band of our generation will possibly be remembered as wankers and douchebags.

 

Why the fuck are they in a position that people will be celebrating the day that U2 breaks up? Or even worse, can you imagine what peeps will be saying the day Bon Bon departs the planet?

That's fucked.

Bash. For me it's not the music and it's not their Tour whatsoever. I still love their work. It's the bad advice and down right stupid descision making. That's why I went on t a rant about Paul McGuiness a while ago. Too many people pissing in their pockets ATM.

yeah Mick loved No Line when it first came out and still do i still say its the best thing they have done.

 

now i got into them when boy came out and apart from the 10 year hiatus from them (no need to go into that one) ive liked some of the stuff they have done but some of the stuff has been horrenous i mean the sweetest thing come on what the hell.......

 

but now i dunno sometimes i think i should have not bothered coming back into u2 because if i had known when i came back that i'd be sitting writing some of the stuff i had i wouldn't have bothered coming here in the first place 5 years ago.

I'm sorry to say it lads, but they've put profit before everything else. I know that U2 is a buisness and fair enough, I accept that. But I really do feel they're taking the piss now out of us fans, who've made them rich beyond they're wildest dreams by saving up our hard earned money, going to gigs, travelling to see the gigs, cd's merchandise etc etc etc.

 

They're forgotten and lost sight of just who put them in their priveldged positions in life. And I, for one, think it's taking liberties and just isn't on.

errrr? we come here because we can. and we have loved the band for so long, knowing there is one more amazing album in them yet? and mostly because we paid to do so, so we might aswell use it? and because i love talking to my zootop mates. doesnt mean if there is a problem with u2 making $$$ i can admit the truth that u2 are not a working band anymore, they are a reunion band every 5 years who live off the joshua tree with stunning stage effects live these days?

 

i loved the 360 show i went to by the way, i thought it was a good make up for the popmart tour i missed, plus i wanted to take both my songs to see them live, more than i wanted to go myself.

 

but its not even fit enough to lick zootv's boots, when u2 were a band who brought out music not for the hype. zooropa i consider to be one of their best, and because the sales flunked, people say its one of the worst albums..............
