i hate woodsman. they're way too shifty for my liking.
one person said she thought he looked like a pottery teacher.

I think if he was wandering around in the woods he'd be more apt to be looking for some delightfully illegal plants. He did write a prose poem where the main character was killed and eaten by a deaf bear.... (and I always laugh when I read that part... )


At least you didn't say he looks like Willie Nelson...

Well you said it yourself. U2 have a whole bunch of influences.

Coldplay have just one - Unforgettable Fire era U2 - which they have so far failed to emulate.

Yeah, like how they sampled Unforgettable Fire-era U2 on "Talk." Or how I have a bootleg of them doing Unforgettable Fire-era U2's "Lips Like Sugar." Or when they performed Unforgettable Fire-era U2's "Bitter Sweet Symphony" at Live 8 with Unforgettable Fire-era U2's Unforgettable Fire-era Bono.

Never let it be said that U2 fans are ever narrow minded.

I love how pissed off people get if someone criticizes a band.

It's one thing to criticize a band - it's another to keep bashing them over and over again like so many people do here.

Sorry, but I hear absolutely no U2 in a song such as "Green Eyes"

And sorry again, but your claim that Coldplay only has "Unforgettable Fire era U2" as influence is pure bullshit, pardon my language, but there is no other way to express this. U2 played A LOT of piano on Unforgettable Fire, right?

zoomerang, sorry, but you're not really in a position to complain about people in people's avatars
