wink u2 cover bands are lame

yes, thats right. all the pictures ive seen, all of what ive heard, it sounds to me like the biggest crock of shit ever.

that goes for all cover bands. dont get me wrong, i love it when bands do covers, but for bands to go out and "tour" as if they are u2 is just sickening.

why dont they come up with something original? i have very little respect for bands that live off of someone else who did all the work.

plus the pictures of them are unbelievably poor. dressing as the band members? what are we, in kindergarten?

not cool.

end of rant.

oh and i dont care what you think. sure, share what you feel, but this isnt even open to debate, at least at my end.

agreed

I was waiting for someone to say this.

Why impersonate a living band?

I don't even like Elvis impersonators.

If a band can do a good job, and I don't see a reason not to, but everytime I've seen a band do a cover it's never worthy. U2 happens to be a band that's extremely difficult to repilcate, especailly Bono's vocals.

noone but bono can be bono. and i can live with that. but for people to "hit the road" and go on tour or play a bunch of public shows acting, playing and BEING u2 is stupid.

couldnt they just sit at home and read a catalogue or something?

we played a cover of fake plastic trees for a month in my dads workshop. we attempted high and dry once. we did this at home, just us guys. we also did a couple of u2 songs. but, we wrote and played our own material for the most part.

me never once played in front of an audience, and we certainly did not tour. i think that answers your question.

If we had a U2 cover band near us, I'd go give them a listen.

Oh jaaaaaaaaaaaaysus, it's all in fun deathbear. Unforgettable Fire in NYC is fun to watch, and they're good at what they do. They play bars. Who cares?
