Where's the fun in subtleties?

OK, so I just made a post on WTAHNN where I mentioned Paul McGuinne$$. Every time his name comes up, I'm reminded of a comment by somebody here (lazarus, maybe?) that it's very telling that we can actually name U2's manager. He's central to numerous discussions and even the more casual fans amongst Interference's membership can name him.

Think about any other band you like a lot. Can you name their manager? No, didn't think so. I've no fucking clue who manages Porcupine Tree or Pure Reason Revolution or Crowded House or Dream Theater or Pink Floyd or whoever, nor do I care. Whoever made the post I'm thinking of mentioned that they couldn't name Radiohead's manager either. The managers people tend to know are those who are ... less than ideal people. And have a look outside the U2 fandom. When non-fans bring up McGuinne$$, it's routinely just to slam the guy for being a complete fool. We've discussed it before: the guy does the band more harm than good nowadays. He should have quit while he was ahead and passed the reins to somebody whose brain has managed to move beyond the 1980s.

Sometimes I dream at night that Larry and McGuinne$$ run off together to live on a farm.

I wake with a smile on my face

There are probably PLEBAns who have the same dream, but in different directions.

Personally, I think they should just go deep into the jungle, build a shack, and spend the rest of their lives as hunter-gatherer hermits.

PS Can you name Springsteen's manager?

My brother... on the front

Then bullet points of some of the thread ideas we came up with way back in Passengers survivor (i think) on the back.

Collect the set again!

I think the "my brother.." thing came up just after Andrew first suggested the whole Kunstmuseum thing.

My favourite was always "...'s name is Mittens."
