how about this bit of self-indulgent garbage from the church:

Catholic Church bans footy theme songs at funerals | Herald Sun

has me seething.

agreed.
If they're trying to push people away then they're spot on!

I read that the Pies' song is the most requested. In which case, he might have a point...

Yep. But he was fanboy #1 at one stage.

I used to work for a record company, and rumours/stories about Bernard Fanning being a twat were rife, a favourite topic, and the most popular were stories of him getting put in his place or not getting his way. The U2 story comes from them simply being lined up as one of the support acts for Elevation, and Edge had a say in who got the spot. His reaction to Powderfinger was along the lines of - - and he asked if it were possible to get someone... interesting, exciting, GOOD? And remember, their album at the time was Odyssey # 5, what many/most consider to be their biggest and best. Quite a put down.

Word got back to Fanning. He was fuming. Problem was, Rolling Stone were about to print an article where he names his ten desert island discs or whatever, and he had a U2 album included - I think it was AB - with a blurb where he gushes about both the album and U2. He wasn't having it, got in touch with Rolling Stone and tried to the point of ridiculous diva threats ("You don't want to get offside of with the greatest band this countries ever produced" sort of thing) to get the article pulled and/or amended. It was too late to do. The story shot around, too brilliant. The Almighty Bernard dismissed by U2, and then the massive immature tantrum. And yeah, ever since then, he acts as though he's always hated U2.

i like Odyssey #5, but i can definitely see where Edge is coming from, they aren't the MOST interesting band going around, musically.

i would have bought a ticket for their farewell tour but $100 is too much for a band i don't love.

Wow, thanks for that. What a drama queen. I guess we won't be giving him tea and sympathy anytime soon.
