It's from a Freddy Mercury vs. Bono thread from way back. Some dickhead was basically saying that Freddie Mercury was a lesser performer than Bono because he was gay, and relied too much on "showGAYship" rather than a more proper type of performing art.

I can't search for it, sorry.

I love how Peterrrrrrrr has just ruined the appreciation of Bono's vocals for everyone. As soon as you enjoy some of his singing, you suddenly think "ohhhhh shittttt, Peterrrrrrr" and then your mind is assaulted with thoughts of the smoke sound, the low hmmmmmm, and so forth.

He's almost as bad as One, really. Simultaneously overblown and boring, and taken seriously by some crazy people. One is only good when you add "Tree Hill" to the title. I don't know how anybody could favour One over One Tree Hill. The performance of One Tree Hill on 26 December 1989 owns so fucking much.

Really, everything on Lovetown absolutely ruled. The setlist variety is just incredible. It had six unique openers! No other tour has had so many openers. And those openers included Hawkmoon 269 and God Part II. FUCK YEAH. We totally need those songs brought back. Same goes for The Unforgettable Fire and A Sort Of Homecoming. The Unforgettable Fire album needs to be represented by something other than Pride or Bad. It's just too good to be ignored. And while they're at it, they should finally play Heartland live. The world needs Heartland live. Urgently.

That's cool, I get it now, thanks

And I thought gay people were supposed to be naturally better performers
