I have a really cool, wild idea for the interference.com community!

check this out....

A Tribute To U2 By The Memebers Of Interference.com

We've got all types of talented people here who share a similar passion: U2. Now some of us have had the chance to meet the boys firsthand, others have not, but we've all at some point or another made our point here on this site. What if we, as a community, had the chance to say Thank You directly to U2 and show the band how much they mean to us? Sound crazy? Here's what I'm thinking....

1. A tribute cd of musicians from this site doing their best cover of a u2 song. Any submissions taken, as many as we can get.

2. With the cd, a booklet of origional art and writings by any other interferenece.com com members who would like to submit stuff.

We take the cd, and the booklet, package it up with a cover letter to Principle Management explaining what it is, and then send it off.

I admit, this would take a lot of work, but I really think it would be a cool thing. U2 is what has brought people from all over the world to this site. For better or worse, this is a community, and we do all share a similar interest. Friendships have begun because of this site. I think it would be a nice gesture.

If anyone is interested in helping out with this endeavor, feel free to post your comments here or email me. I am a busy person, but I'd be willing to compile the music, master them if necessary, and put the cd together. We'd probably need a couple editors for the book, along with some graphic design people to help get it lookin' good. This doesn't have to be really fancy or cost a lot.

Lemme know what you guys think.

Would the tracks be recorded individually or would we collaborate on them? For a song like "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," for instance, separate people can submit lead vocals, background vocals, lead guitar (electric), rhythm guitar (acoustic), bass, drums, and...um, there's a guy here obsessed with cow bell, isn't there? Then someone can mix and master them. That'd be pretty cool, especially for those of us who don't have bands or for those of us that can play a mean acoustic but would have a hard time doing a song solo.

theoretically you could do that. Even if you have a simple four track tape machine, you could still do vocals, guitar, bass, and a drum track (programmed). But, if you wanted to do a collaboration with others, you could. Might be kindof difficult, but definately possible!

Cool idea!

I'll help in any way possible I don't really play... but I write and I'll volunteer to edit and such

Would this compilation also be available to Interferencers?

Cool.

As far as the booklet goes, I have no idea how we would distribute that to members since the cost of duplication might be expensive. You could do a distribution tree or something. Maybe the contributions could be posted somewhere on the site? We'll see as it goes I guess. This all just an idea right now (read...ideas anyone?)

As far as the cd goes, I figure we could post the mp3 files where they could be downloaded, and do a distribution tree as well if people need that.

this thread should be copied into every damn forum and get stuck on top until it's done
