well yea partly and I think Adam went from simplistic(80s) to complicated (90s) and back to easy again... Tho as Mia says, AMAAW is really good...
Ha, yes. I just went off breakfast foods, myself. But if I'm going to have 10am lectures next semester, I'm going to need to find something quick and easy that I like for breakfast. Bah.

As much as his playing in the eighties was simplistic - well, Gloria. I'd love to see Adam take the spotlight like that again. That'd be really cool.

Ah yes, Grace is a great one too.

Hey GG, which songs do you know on bass? I used to play a few, but it's been awhile, I need to start all over methinks. Which is an easy one to begin with? I think I remember Desire just being like, 4 notes or something.

I still wonder wether Adam was the one who thought up the riff on MoFo... that IS a killer bassriff, but yea, synth... wish I could play that fast


Never forget Adam has big hands and has years of plucking experience

Do you mean the one in this thread? Not a total waste of time.

The stuff on YouTube's meant to be fake though, right? I haven't actually bothered to check it out.

if you want easy, go WOWY! it's four notes.. D, A, B, G

One day I shall be able to play Gloria

that's the next song i'm gonna bring up for my basslessons, we worked out Streets completely before and now I want him to teach me one of his ex-band's songs after that I'll request Gloria!

if you need a complete basstab for Streets mia, I can give you that..
Ultimate guitar still hasn't put it up while I submitted it months ago!

They played Gloria when i saw them in Boston in 2005, Adam was awesome

It wasn't until witnessing Adam technique up close that i began to appreciate his skills

i'm looking forward to seeing people from other shows again, and meeting more. and your site kicks ass, btw.
I'm not one for camping out really, but I did have some good times on Vertigo. Especially in Auckland with Utoo, his wife, and this Danish couple. That was an excellent day, and I'd certainly look forward to hanging out before a U2 gig with the Melbourne Interference crowd, who I unfortunately didn't really know last time except for bono_man2002 (I saw the second show with him). Though I won't be travelling nearly as much, if at all, for the next tour. Finances are bloody limited, and really Porcupine Tree is the one band I'm most motivated to travel for.

And thanks. Hey, I love the site too. Honestly, although I've been working on it for over three years now, I still think of myself as a fan of the site rather than one of the owners. Some of my best U2 fan memories are of wasting study lessons at high school in 2003 and 2004 just surfing what was then elevation-tour.com. That's how I got my setlist knowledge!

Which Boston show? I saw it there on 26 May 2005, though it was also done on 5 December 2005. I'd say the 26 and 28 May Boston gigs are the two best U2 shows I've seen, though the best specific concert moment would be One Tree Hill within sight of One Tree Hill, without a doubt.

I was there for both the December shows, front row elipse on 5th. I wanted to hear two songs that night i'd never heard live Gloria & Crumbs, I got both

I'd say Toronto 4 and Boston on 4th Dec were my two favourites, althought Dublin is always special

Wow One Tree Hill, and to think i was offered a ticket for Auckland(for original date) and said no
