I don't see anything wrong with calling them wankers. The choice of words was poor, because it sounds like "anyone who likes the Rolling Stones is a wanker", which I'm sure was not the idea.

I know there are some overprotective U2 fans, but I don't see artists being trashed for no reason on this forum (okay, maybe Coldplay, but they deserve it). I guess when your favorite band is 80 years old and is coasting on their 25-40 year old hits, you get a little defensive when a band like U2 is still putting out relevant material. When your favorite band only manages 1 grammy nomination despite being around for so long, it must be annoying when another veteran band gets much more, and in big categories.

The reason you don't see this kind of animosity on U2 boards is because our band is on top, and there's not much jealousy. Even the digs at band like Coldplay are because they are lame imitators, not because they're stealing any thunder.

So take pity on these die hard Stones fans. It's clear envy has got the better of them, and they direct their anger at the artists who are doing what the Stones could only dream of at this point.

Fuck 'em.
Maybe you aren't looking at the same posts on this forum I am, but there is the same type of animosity for other bands on this board.

What the hell are you talking about? The Stones did it all first, got fried on drugs, recovered, and Keith will outlast the War of the Worlds (and Tim Robbins too).

Just 'cause they play Midnight Rambler without a click track and a synth tambourine....that's no reason to hate em! And they actually jam live. If they faced off against U2 live, Edge would keep playing the rhythm part nervously, waiting for something to happen, Bono would try to strum some chords on his silent guitar in vain, Adam would look at his feet sheepishly, and Larry would try to end the song early ----- meanwhile Keef and Ronnie Wood would play off each other all the way to the moooooooooooooon!

maybe it should be, 'the edge has an amazin' pianist.'

come on everyone. say it altogether, real fast.
Terry plays for them live on a few songs but it's The Edge who comes up with the piano stuff on the studio.

Yeah if both Stones fans and U2 fans have a dedicated group of smacktards bashing each other, they'll cancel each other out right?

I realised I didn't like Radiohead fans on atease because they seemed like wankers.

Then I realised that U2 fans in EYKIW were no better.

Ooh, am I picking a fight here? Come on, come on! :upandatem:

Oh thisd is funny. I moderate a few Roy Orbison Yahoo Groups. Some Elvis fan came on and insulted Roy's fans. I chastised the person. Then I come on here and read all this!

Each singer/group has its fans and I don't even think it should be a cometition or comparison. All I know is who my favorites are.
