Didn't they change the key for MJB?

But the thing is, it t sounded pretty good. Don't judge what you haven't heard. I know you don't like the Beatles, but Yesterday is one of the greatest pop songs ever written bar none period. You can't go wrong with it.

Vertigo was neutered because of the solo and bridge being knocked out so that was unfair

and they performed with MJB, who is cool and all, but drowns Bono out in every live performance

Macca had 2 unchanged songs, and the random appearance w/ Jay-Z and Linkin Park

what is going on there?

My guess is they didn't ruin it, they butchered it.

I hope I never have to hear this. Just the thought is bad enough. And I don't even like McCartney, but come on, Jay-Z and Linkin Park?!

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

Maybe painkillers for the back?
