U2 makes amazing music, but the Beatles *changed* music. I can understand why some people might not like them, but you can't deny that in every possible way they are more important than any other band. And as for the people who don't like The Beatles, I noticed that most of you say you only have one album, or a best of compilation. That's just the thing - in their later years (ie their most creative period) they were an album band, n

For a start they are great friends and fans of U2, and they've written many songs that we'd be banging on about forever if U2 had written them. Bono was just being a wind-up merchant as usual, I just can't believe what a ridiculous reaction it's provoked. And why do Americans kiss the Beatles' asses so much... As for comparisons with Radiohead... an entirely different brand of genius. I am an American, and I dislike the Beatles. I like Coldplays sound, Albiet, am not ALL that familiar with it. ...I heard the comparisons t

Noel Gallagher fair play as he just recyles the same themes again and again. Bono just gives far too much credit to mediocre work, he doesn't feel the same way about Snow Patrol or god forbid Athlete. U2 spawned alot of crap lets face it, none of these pretenders are fit to lick their sexy boots. Radiohead are one of the only bands who recognise their influence but bring something completely different to the tab

It'd be fun seeing them explain what "wanker" means! Anyone see the 60 Minutes special on Coldplay on Grammy's night? The host asked Chris Martin why he thought they'd done so well in the last few years. "U2 have been on holiday" was his answer. I really don't see any anymosity between the two bands, as I said, just the press trying to make hype from shite. I'm LMAO AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Milan 2005 where in my opinion Bono performed the greatest version of Miss Sarajevo EVER in fact I think I could safely say that this was the greatest performance by Bono singing any song,I was never a big fan of the track with Pavarotti I would call it a good track but the Bono Milan version makes the hair on my neck stand up everytime. I agree! It was excuisite........
