  1. I've been listening to Songs of Experience a lot lately. I would have to say it is one of my favorite albums. One thing I notice is that Adam's bass playing seems to be more prevalent in the songs on this CD than in most of the rest of U2's work. Normally, I don't notice the bass very much. Usually, I am focused on Edge's guitar playing. I am sure if I heard songs by U2 with the bass cut out I would notice, but usually the bass is more in the background, except for maybe songs like "With or Without" you. But Adam's bass playing seems to take a more noticeable role in Songs of Experie
  2. Hi, Lately I have been listening to U2's Live Under a Blood Red Sky album. One of the reasons I love U2 is they are such a great live band. So many other bands are horrible live, but U2 are even better live than they are on their studio recordings. I have a lot of their concert DVDs and actually converted my favorite live versions of songs into mp3 format so I could make CDs with my favorite live performances of songs. As good as their studio album recordings are, the band always takes it up a notch and outdoes the studio versions in their live performances. They either mix it up, add
  3. Hi, I am interested in finding good biography of the history of U2 and the lives of the band members, and their development as musicians as well. I know there have been quite a few, but some of the ones I am aware of are probably out of date. Are there any recent, comprehensive, well researched and composed biographies of U2 and the members of the band? I am also interested in any books written about the band that are good and interesting. Thanks for any suggestion.
  4. As for other bands I liked and listened to a lot but in general do not listen to now. Aerosmith, AC/DC, Boston, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Pink Floyd, The Who, some Led Zeppelin and Rolling Stones. Most of the stuff they would play on "Classic Rock" radio stations until they started adding 90s bands and musicians to their playlists. Newer stuff (relatively) I used to listen to somewhat would be Rage Against the Machine (although I think The Edge still has cooler guitar effects than Tom Morello), Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers. There could be other ones I ca
  5. Hi, I am looking for some good music besides U2. I find that they are all I really enjoy listening to. I have most of their CDs and I have some burned CDs where I mix my favorite songs by the band. I have tried listening to other bands and musicians and nothing really interests me as much as U2's music. Usually the only thing I listen to besides U2 right now is classical music, mostly by Mozart, but also Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Schubert, and Schumann. But I get tired of classical music sometimes. I have been listening to some house music, which is somewhat enjoyable to me, but I stoppe
  6. Hi, I am interested in the history of Ireland, myself being part Irish and also my favorite band U2!!! being Irish as well. Does anyone know of any good in depth books on the history of Ireland? Thanks for any suggestions.
  7. Hi, I don't know if there already has been a thread on this subject, so please link me to such a one if there already is one posted. I like to learn about new music, especially stuff I have never heard anything like before. But honestly, U2 is the band I listen to the most. Recently, I have been exposing myself to jazz, blues, punk, and most recently house music. I am wondering what music the members of U2 themselves like to listen to. What are the major influences on their music, and who do they derive inspiration from of other musical artists? Is there a website or list somewher
