And you're totally right about hot cross buns. I just can't do them without butter. I feel for my mother, as she isn't allowed butter any more, so she doesn't have hot cross buns as she says the butter's what makes it.

5. He hold it long

Pick correct, you win special 20 minute clip of Bono voice highlights.


"He hit it brief"

That was perfect!

Classic. It's like he doesn't really have a clue about what Bono's doing either. So many of the comments are so generic, in an "I actually haven't much of an idea about singing" sense. [/B]
I know, exactly! If he's trained to identify notes easily, I'm not sure why he'd bother with Bono anyway. My brother states that Bono barely even sings at all, and he's on to something there.

Exactly. Bono has nothing even approaching true technical ability - his singing is often all about the emotion, and that's such a subjective thing that it's hard to identify a performance that even half of Interference will agree is incredible.

A site like this is just ridiculous. It's one thing to have sites like U2Wanderer or U2VT. It's quite another thing to essentially stalk Bono's singing, and make a website dedicated to "great" moments that would really be just another day at the office for truly fantastic technical singers.

Guys, should I make a cartoon about all of this? I mean, it wouldn't be very hard. Just have him (or herrrrr, of course...that's always a possibility ) follow Bono around with a box of throat lozenges, and offer to pay for extensive vocal cord scraping when Bono misses an E above middle C. They can also show him their extensive collection of bootlegs recorded directly from the mic feed, with all of the music cut out.

This cracked me up:

2005 July Amazing Grace The song is a snippet on songs serveral times on 2nd leg on Vertigo tour. The word "Me" is powerful.

2005 Ocotber and November Vertigo Bono screams crazy the "Rock 'N' Roll Nigger" snippet.

Just ... no.

Dude, definitely. As long as it doesn't distract you from finishing the next part of your current McGuinness saga, though.

Frankly, I'd like to see you parody a whole bunch of us in cartoon form. I don't doubt you could do a whole series on me and my setlists/UF/OTH/Heartland.

Oh, you'll love that. McGuinness forms a new band of second-rate punks he found living in a cardboard box and challenges U2 to a battle of the bands. Meanwhile, Eno makes it his life's purpose to find the center of music itself, deconstruct it, and put on the new U2 album.
