I'm not sure if this has been discussed yet, but about an hour ago I heard Speed of Sound by Coldplay (on the radio) for the first time. I've heard of the song, but for some reason, when I heard the song, U2 came into my head. I'm not sure why, but just the overall tone along with the lyrics somewhat provides for that "U2 feel". If you know what I mean.
I hope I'm not going to get flamed for this, but I was just wondering if anyone else came under the same impression; or something like it..
A rather amusimg interview bit with Liam Gallagher.
LIAM CALLS U2 GRUMPY
Pot! Kettle! Darkness!
Miserable gob-shooting imbecile Liam Gallagher has attacked U2 for being overly serious, which is a bit like shouting at a cow for producing milk.
Apparently, the highly professional Irish rock legends like to watch a video of their performance after every gig, so that they may learn and grow and give ever better shows for their fans. Now, you'd have thought 'turn up, stand there and holler' frontman Liam might want to take a few hints here. But no!
Gallagher made the shocking assertion that this meant that U2 are "Wankers," as he mused: "Haven't they got fuck all better to do? I'd rather be out there getting pissed. I certainly wouldn't go back after a gig and analyse it." Is there a double negative in that first bit?
Liam's diversion between reality and his intelligence continued as he wombled on "This is the best job in the world. It's even better when you're the best rock star," he said. He concluded that "I'm the best fucking rock'n'roll singer this country's ever had," as his nose suddenly grew to three feet long and poked the unfortunate journalist conducting the interview in the eye.
Oasis' new album 'Don't Believe The Truth' is currently outselling everything else by a country mile, and is predicted to accompany the Crazy Frog at the top of the charts this Sunday.
Don't know if anyone's read about this. But U2 and Bono are supposed to be on HBO's The Entourage this Sunday. Apparently the characters go to see a U2 show and the boys (u2) come out as a big fan of the lead actor guy (can we tell I don't watch this show) and go to get his autograph and whatnot. Bono's got a speaking part and the others are just an appeareance.
Anyway, if you've got HBO, look at for it this Sunday.
The thread at Interference regarding the true and original Until the End of the World video grabbed at my interest.
What do us guys and girls over here know about the video? Can anyone tell me about it? Is there any way to see it without looking for the Achtung Baby video?
