I hate to seem snippy and so restrictive, but that's pretty much what it's come down to.


BC,

I really tried to redirect this discussion.. But guess it didn't work..

I know I certainly have moved on about 'it'...

I'll let you talk to gabrielvox about that one, though.
I don't see any similarity whatsoever. Let me think... ....nope, sorry.



besides a long time ago we stopped Edgy from signing autographs as "The Edge" after he admitted it was just a ploy to get laid

I say after one more airing.
I have to agree with you. I don't think this show will last to even see a winner.

To try to answer the question that started the thread:

The Greatest Celebrity Impersonator would have to be Fat Elvis who performs at the Barbary Coast on the Las Vegas strip. He does 2 shows a day and he's great. He's also so fat he has to sit on a thing that is like a cross between a double adirondack(sp.) chair and a parkbench. His voice is unbelievable at times though.
He's what Elvis would be today had the drugs not killed him but he'd kept a steady diet of fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches up.

God I hope there is never a FAT BONO out in Vegas. That would be too much for my heart to bear.

Oh and now that I have read about the guy on the show last night I am glad I missed it after all.

If you want to post "Bono is a jerk" or start a thread with that title...fire away. If you assume the right to do that, people can also assume to right to respond to that. And, yes, that will likely include people getting riled up. You can't censor who replies to your threads.

Going to a _____ (insert band name forum) and saying "_____ (insert band's singer) is a jerk" is one of the surefire ways to rile people on the forum. I don't think it's just a Bono/U2 phenomemon: try going to murmurs.com and post "Michael Stipe is a jerk" or go to Pearl Jam's biggest forum and post "Eddie Vedder is an asshole". You think "defender patrol" doesn't exist there ?

I thought that about America's Got Talent last summer. Oh, how I was wrong.

BTW, he's actually "Big Elvis" not "fat Elvis"

as someone who posts on a pearl jam forum from time to time... if the band does something that some consider to be lame (like, perhaps having some guy in sunglasses make a bunch of lame lyric changes to a neil young cover), they're called upon... some disagre, of course, and they voice their opinion... those who say "damn that version of rockin' in the free world with bono was f'ing LAAAAAAAME" aren't crucified there the way those who might say something like, oh i dunno, "bono going on american idol was incredibly laaaaaaaaame"

yes, i know... there are some who do it on purpose, there are some who are just unreasonable and seem to insult every last thing u2 does, no matter what it is... but there are some who just have a problem here and there with some of the things the band does, voices them, and would like to be able to voice them without the "bono is the greatest human being of all time he's never done anything wrong in his life" crowd from jumping all over it.

Okay, let's clarify...

We aren't to talk about the Bono impersonator anymore.

That means that Bono isn't even remotely related to this thread.

Discuss other aspects of the show, or else this thread doesn't need to continue.
