  3. The Beattles not rock?? U2 not rock?? (Edge, please forgive them) I am now blasting: Revolution (The Beattles) Bullett the Blue Sky (U2) Sounds like Rock N Roll to me!!

Everyone says that the 80's hair group Whitesnake is a joke, so to have a laugh, I went to see them live 3 years ago, and I saw men with open shirts and washboard abs doing a kick-ass performance. I wasn't laughing. I was enjoying them! Last year on the Van Halen tour, David Lee Roth had the body of a 20 something, and I think he's about 50. David Lee Roth was truely inspiring to see LOL...I had to
  7. Thanks for the link Coquelicot..that was very cool to see!!! I have mixed feelings on the remix. As a House/Electronic music fan, I think its very cool! I think they released a dance version of the song in Europe,and are supporting it on the tour. I have a feeling they will go back to the regular version on the American leg of the tour (IE: Like how they left"Fast Cars" off of the American version of "Bomb", as Europe is way more into dance music then Americans are). On the other hand I have grown to love this song! I hate how my favorite part of the song is cut out..."Baby Baby Baby, yo
  8. It is unbelievable that U2 has stayed together, and put out relevant music for 30 years. Something no other Rock Band has ever done. This brings up thediscussion, where do they rank all time?? Are they the greatest "Rock Band" of all time?? Rank your "5 greatest Rock Bands of all time??" 1) U2 (30 years of killer/relevant music, gotta be #1) 2) The Beattles (Abbey Road might be the greatest album of all time) 3) Led Zepellin (If only they could have stayed together/alive) 4) Queen (I think these guys were way underrated!) 5) The Doors (Morrison was brilliant) Sorry "Stones"...I have to l
  9. As Bruce himself said in the U2 Hall of Fame Induction speach..."U2 is the last band we will know all the names of" (John Paul RingoGeorge......Bono, Larry, Adam, The Edge) My fiance is from Croatia (ex Yugoslavia), and she moved to the states 8 years ago. She had not heard of "Bruce Springsteen" before moving here.Being European, she definitely knows who U2 are. Not sure you all realize how big U2 is in the world. Keep in mind they are a "European Band" who are as big as Bruce in his own country (I saybigger). Around the world, its really not even close.
  10. Great pics girl...love them...again I have mucho admiration for the boss...not that into his music, but lots of respect! He is way bigger on the East Coast then West....we are about the same age (40), at my high school on the west coast there were no hard core "brucefans"....Im sure there were where you live. (Close to Jersey) and I think Ive heard of that Saxaphone guy!! (teeeheee) Cheers!
  11. Only on the East Coast (Northeast) is Bruce as big as U2...in other area's of the country, and around the world, they are not at the same level Really not threatened...just reality...as much as I respect "The Bruce".... Can anyone name a member of the "Eaststreet Band"???? (probably not, this proves our point) Cheers from the West Coast!!
  12. Super Cool Post Kennyu...I had not seen that performance...awsome! What a frenzy that crowd is in!!
  13. One last point on "Crazy Tonight"...my last 2 cents in regard to this song...which has grown and grown on me over the past few months....for thefirst few weeks of the album it was towards the bottom for me on the "top songs on the new album list"....it seemed too basic to be one of myfavorites....I loved the more complicated stuff like "No Line" and "Breathe"... Then I realized Edge's guitar at the end of the song was one of those "Edge Moments"...in which his guitar became more then a guitar, but sang amelody along with Bono to create something uniquely U2! Now over time it has become one o
  14. My Apologies Fortitude....I officially give you your U2 Fan Card back......you are overly analytical about the music, but DEFINITELY A FAN . Sorry for ever suggesting. I respect most of your points. For whatever reason, people like to come down on Bono about the lyrics on this album. He loves to write about spirituality, and I find the lyrics to be aspassionate as they have always been. I guess Im not one to sit around and wonder "what does that mean", I rather just feel the passion of the wordsalong with the passion of the music. I find that they blend well as always on this album.
  15. LOL...you are confused by your close to New Jersey location....Bruce is not even in the conversation of "Greatest Rock Bands of alltime"....hmmm...this would make a good topic!! (U2, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Doors...these are the bands that come up in this discussion) Bruce isa solo act. The "Eaststreet Band" backs him up. His name resinates large in America, but not so much World Wide. "Born in the USA" madehim famous in America. Not so much around the world. U2 are the godfathers of "Alternative Rock"....they built the format....you must not be a fan of "Alternative Rock" if y
