It may frighten them into worshipping you as a local deity of smoke and sound, actually.

Ooh, well then, I do like the idea of having minions, even if I have to use a boganmobile to get them.

Just make sure you don't become one of their sacred sacrifices. Those are painful. Somehow, in their amazing, if primitive, abilities, they manage to stuff an entire human body into a 700ml empty bottle of Bundaberg Rum.

He was already mine, but that just made it moreso.

These bogans of yours have peculiar tribal ways ...

I love this thread. We can agree Paul McGuinness is terrible and not worry about it turning into 200 pages of flames. I love how some people seem to think it's necessary to defend EVERYTHING associated with U2. Paul McGuinness nowadays is totally useless. Sure, he may have been good for the band in the early days, what with making sure the band owned the rights to all their songs and all that. But he is COMPLETELY out of touch with today's music industry and is one of the people hopelessly fighting the tide rather than using some imagination to work with it. He's too comfortable with his traditional business models to give them up, and it can only hurt U2 in the long run.

Morning.

All I have to say about Paul McGuinness is that I don't even know what the hell he does that's so bad anymore because I don't pay attention to what the manager's doing, and the position's kind of useless when you're this big because there's going to be way more people than just one person trying to have a say in how everything should be run.

I agree, I love that we can amicably discuss U2 in here. There are too many nutcases all to willing to follow U2 to the ends of the earth

I say McGuinness and Larry get in a boat, maneuver it over Niagara Falls into the waiting mouth of a few crocodiles, barely escape only to be captured by a rabid tribe of French Canadians.

I don't find Larry's actual drumming to be a big deal. Most bands honestly don't have very creative drumming. Sure, he could do better, but it's not a big deal to me. The only thing that bugs me is his opinion of their work. Then again, they all have shit opinions of their own work, so what makes Larry any different?

It's not Larry's drumming that pisses me off so much, but his influence and the fact that he exercises a quarter of the band's creative control. If something's not safe enough for Larry, if it's not radio-friendly or middle of the road, he'll kill it after the Passengers and Pop experience.

How about we send them to Antarctica to think about what they've done? Note that their suitcases will contain solely clothing suited to a brief tropical holiday in Fiji.

You're exactly right in every way, there. I haven't seen a single attempt of his to innovate the industry or even go with the state it's in. All he wants is money. It's gotten to the point now, though, that it would be difficult to get rid of him, or to get rid of Larry as another example, and though I cannot say to what extent, I'd imagine a big part of it is the potential of sacrificing friendship, as dumb as it sounds.

Now that I've actually heard Passengers, I can't believe the direction U2 COULD have gone in.

They should have taken a left turn at Albuquerque.
