Uncomplimentary U2 quotes on other celebrities

We all know that our boys usually say nothing but kinds things about other entertainers, even when the Henry Rollins of the world ooze venom in regards to them. But there are times when our heroes are not saints themselves.

I can come up with at least two from the Zoo Tv tour at the moment:

"Definitely not the brains of the group."

-Bono on meeting Dave Grohl

"Lovely girl, but I wouldn't go for her."

-Adam on meeting actress Kim Basinger at a an after-show party

Can anybody come up with any others?

it's just a tongue -firmly- in- cheek thread about funny U2 quotes about others. They are funny guys as we all know and this is just further proof.

I guess I just don't understand a need for seeking out unkind words.

Bono famously called James a bunch of "rip-off merchants" that were "full of shite" in the early 90s.

Check EBTTRT from Popmart Yorkshire, He's got a few kind words for George Harrisson there.

I believe the exact quote from Adam was "I wouldn't fuck Kim Basinger with The Edge's dick."

Wow, never heard that one. That's a naughty Bono!

Where's that clip from whatever awards show where they appear via video and are drunk and slagging off (or making fun of?) Phil Collins?
