All of those options say that McGuinness is good, though.

How was he responsible for Achtung Baby being recorded? Did the band not want to release music from the sessions? Please elaborate.

Also, Paul is a dick, though I do dislike illegal file sharing if one loves the music but has no intent to buy, especially for unpopular bands.

Damn you McGuinness for wanting to make money for you and your clients, damn you to hell!



The amount of McGuinness bashing that goes on on this site is beyond ridiculous.

So true.

Where's the neutral opinion option?

Great for U2 and for us. Cause if didn't managed U2 all these years probably there would be no band for us to talk about right now.

i met him once in Atlanta, he was a nice enough guy to put up with my drunken ass for a bit. I'd day his track record for success is pretty good, so on that note i would have to say he is great for U2.

As much as I teasingly make fun of his... he's a great manager for U2, and I have nothing against him.

I didn't like the way he criticized Radiohead's approach. It's like he felt threatened or something, and he rushed to call it a failure, when actually Radiohead said the results were much better than some company report said and which everyone publicized.

I don't like how greedy U2 has gotten (u2.com, little on deluxe DVDs, highly priced tickets, etc) and he's at least partly to blame for that.
