Jaysus fair play to that Bono. He hasn't changed a bit in the 30 years since The Joshua Tree was released.The man hadn't a grey hair in his head.

Neither had the Edge!   ;)

Actually, The Edge has the edge. He's youngest, so less chance of grey hairs.
I think Larry, do you know who I am, Mullan is the youngest
Careful now

Can we re-name this thread "Begrudgers R US?"
What a lad of bollix. The fact is that if Bono simply concentrated on the music, or if he practiced what ge preached as regards poverty etc then everything would be okay. But he doesn't do either of these things so that overshadows everything and that's why I dislike them. I was a huge fan for years, saw them in Newry Town Hall, but I wouldn't go to the back door to see them. The Rolling Stones, on the other hand, just class.

Actually, I lied a bit there. My brother and I wanted to see them in Newry Town Hall but we had no way of getting there.

Or how about "Bonzo is a tool"?

Could not agree more.
He is a self righteous bollocks. Was at them about ten or twelve years ago at MSG.
General admission tickets were $133 can clearly remember which I thought was a lot of money .
He spent half the night talking pure shit talking about this that and the other. I swore never again.
If the were playing in the back yard I would go next door.
It was a year or two later news came out about tax situation.
Was even angrier if that was possible.

Still the biggest band in the world.

Bono preaches a little, OK a lot.

But perhaps their campaigns just might have had some impact - Bono was the first person to talk about 3rd World countries needing Justice, not Handouts.  He spearheaded the Millennium Initiaitve to cancel 3rd World Debt. 

Bono's fortune (the vast majority of which he has given away secretly) is not going to solve third world poverty which is his major crusade.  To suggest all world problems could be solved by Bono handing his money over, is ridiculous. 

I also remember the song Walk On at 360 Tour when he got people to walk onto the stage with Aung San Suu Kyi masks.  He used this song to highlight her house arrest.  Shortly after, she was freed.  Up until then no one had a clue who she was.

During the ZooTV tour, he did nightly satellite links with Sarajevo.  After the war, they went and did a broadcast concert there.

He came to Belfast to do a concert to promote the peace process here.

Their music is also excellent and has stood the test of time.

An Irish band, biggest in the world, and making a difference.

...but sure wouldn't it be better if he was like Liam Gallagher; drugged out, can't sing, fighting, foul mouthed, acting the p***k everywhere he goes...

Spot on. We probably won't know the full scale of his charity contributions until after he dies, same as happened with Prince.

The only difference Bonzo has made is to the size of his ego.

Oasis in their heyday were a class act.  At least you saw what you got. I like some, indeed a lot of U2s music, it's Bono's hypocrisy and lecturing that gets me.

Great show at Levi's stadium. Mumford and Sons were fantastic as usual. U2 - great entrance, sound was great (have heard a few folks online complaining - but I thought it was super). With or without you was probably their poorest song of the night. Bono seemed to slip on a lyric and it just didn't sound good at all.

Is Larry Mullan Jr just grumpy looking or is he busy counting to 4 all the time?
