  1. For almost 10 years I have been listening to this guys covers https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBEpL4YSWig4pGhoQLy2S1g and he has vanished, left the face of the earth and he should be tracked down and put on stage to play along side edge as it would just sound awesome!!! Does anyone know how to find this guy?? He doesn't respond to messages so where is he?? These covers are incredible!!! U2 should know about this guy and get him on stage!!
  2. I can't really imagine any of them under the knife, but then again I don't know either of them so can't really make that assessment.
  3. Glad you can have a laugh, it is pretty much in jest anyhow
  4. There has been speculation in the tabloids that Bono has had some work done i.e a lower eye lift but personally I think he looks the same. However, nobody has mentioned The Edge. I think he has had a bit of work done, what do you think? It doesn't matter or bother me, just something I have noticed.
  5. It isn't a Joke, it is my opinion. The boys are simply slowing down and don't play with as much energy nor do they make music that has excitement to it. They are making music of 50 year olds and honestly who would expect anything less as they are in their 50's. I am 33 and enjoyed U2 up until NLOTH which is just a slow and very drab album. The 360 degree concerts started so drearily with space oditty and a series of slow arsed songs that it just didn't capture the imagination. U2 were saved by the light show of their stage this tour, I am a U2 fan but I can also be objective with them to
  6. Personally I think U2 have one more album to make or break them and from then on they will just be a touring band or end up doing gigs in Las Vegas forever more. Remember that U2 signed that massive deal with Live Nation for 300 odd million dollars over 12 years so there is no way they are going to split up.
  7. I must admit that I don't frequent www.u2.com in general anymore simply because I was pretty disappointed with No Line On The Horizon and the 360 degree tour. Please note these are reasons why I don't come here much anymore and I am not speaking for anyone else. I found No Line On The Horizon a pretty boring and bland album, the tone in my opinion was mellow and was an album you put your feet up and listen to and not tap your feet. The songs on their own are masterpieces but all together make for really monotonous album. I find myself listening to HTDAAB quite frequently these days and wis

    Bono's Voice

    Interesting, I think it was in Bono on Bono that I read he had had some Surgery in 1999 on his vocal cords and since that operation his voice has not been the same hence why he sounded terrific on ATYCLB but had a different vocal sound and range and probably not as crisp as we had heard him on previous albums.
  9. Just been watching a fair few clips from the 360 tour and Bono's voice at the beginning of the tour seems ok, not as good as the Vertigo tour. I know in the middle of the 360 tour Bono hurt his back so he got a bit of a break from singing but his voice seemingly got worse to the point where he almost seems as though he is wording songs and not even singing. I also heard a rumour he had taken up smoking again. Freddy Mercury had an issue with polyps on his vocal cords and it actually caused him pain hitting higher notes so he had to tone it down on stage (Not that I noticed) I just wonder if
  10. Is it me or is the guitar work at the end of Paradise a complete and utter rip of Edges work on Unknown Caller?? Coldplay really give me the shits, Anton Corbijn directing Coldplay Unstaged on Youtube, in the studio with Brian Eno. Not hard draw any parallels is it?
  11. I saw the trailer to this today and it looks like an absolutely brilliant film and very, very well done. I can't wait to see it as it looks very funny. I always appreciate humour particularly when it mocks a choice or a scenario that ultimately we know worked.
  12. Yes I saw this in the news today and all I could think of was the poor Hewson family. I am fairly certain that the Hewson family are a down to earth bunch of people and Bono isn’t a mega star in the home and is simply a Dad and Husband. Imagine Bono who is normally out and about who is now incapacitated and going to be stuck at home resting for several weeks. I have to conclude that there is going to be a murder in the Hewson household I.E Bono murdered in the next few weeks and suspect it will be one of the girl’s lol Perhaps Bono might want to read the book “How to rule the wor

    U2 = Sell Outs

    I have no idea if they are coming to Australia and frankly couldn't give a crap if I had to listen to the shite that is NLOTH. Admit this isn't the place to say anything contra about U2 but if you people all keep praising their shite they will just keep releasing it and keep taking your money for it.

    U2 = Sell Outs

    Oh sorry, you were being a smart arse. I should have spotted that. Well seeing I am a member of www.u2.com and hey have a forum Definition:- a public meeting or assembly for open discussion Seeing the majority here would buy a U2 album of Bono farting the back catalogue and who would probably lobby for that album to get a Grammy Award I thought I would add my 2 cents about the band being a sell out. I'm also pretty sure if the band thought they could make money off Bono farting the back catalogue they would release it and no doubt you would all buy it and rave about it's brill
