Technical proficiency is measured in a unit called moggios, guys.

For example:

ARPEGGIO CHORDS
Rush - 55 moggios
U2 - 12 moggios

SUSPENDED CHORDS
Rush - 45 moggios
U2 - 6 moggios

LIVE MUSIC SCALE
Rush - 46,183 moggios
U2 - 19 moggios

That's FACTUAL, thus, Rush rocks and U2 sucks.

What made me laugh was earlier in the thread where someone suggested that Edge couldn't play what Lifeson plays. Any good guitarist can mimic another good guitarist. Edge might not choose to play in that style, but it doesn't mean that he just picked up a guitar for the first time last week, and he's struggling to made a d chord. I'm sure he's proficient enough to play what Lifeson plays.

PROFICIENCY
Lifeson - 88 moggios
Edge - 2 moggios

I'm sorry, you're wrong.

Working Man's guitar riff sounds like something Tony Iommi left on the cutting room floor.

I can never keep that fact vs opinion thing straight. Here's an example: if I said that Bono's mullet looks like a dead beaver, but that Geddy Lee's looks like a dead beaver that suffered from mange for the last 6 months of its life, what would that be again? Fact or opinion? Please clarify.

Give the guy a break. It takes time and effort to bold and underline a word and maximize its douche-y quality.

Let's recap, shall we:

Apart from U2 being more popular than Rush, Rush have EVERYTHING OF IMPORTANCE that U2 don't have anymore, or never did in the first place:

~ Artistic integrity
~ Vehemently refusing to "sell out"
~ Ultimate musicianship
~ Continually innovative/original compositions
~ Affordable prices (tix, merchandise, etc.)


Rush sit at the top of the mountain looking down on U2.
