U2 should follow Red Hot Chili Pepper example...

I like how the Red Hot Chili Peppers released an album last year, managed to make it last for around 12 months with 4/5 singles, then release a new single from their upcoming Greatest Hits compilation under 6 months after their last album. single.

No long waits. No axiety. Makes it seem like they haven't disappeared. Some might say that's a bad thing, but I think its good.

I'd just like U2 to follow this example.

Thank you, that is all...

Well, U2 kinda did those things with Pop -> Best Of 1980-1990 and ATYCLB -> Best Of 1990-2000. They released their regular album, toured it, had some singles of it and less than a year later they released their compilation album. Granted, If God Will Send His Angels wasn't that big a hit anymore, but about 8 or 9 months after that they did have another single (Sweetest Thing). Same goes with Walk On and Electrical Storm.

So there is a small difference between 6 months after their last single and 9 months, but it isn't like an eternity.

C ya!

Marty

RHCP have become kind of stale they were awesome in the early 90's, but Californication was good.
I think currenly they are overrated.
U2 don't need follow any examples to further their career and I don't believe they need to start now.

I always think its annoying the way bands toss out the albums/ singles like there is no tomorrow almost as if they arent gonna last that long and trying to get as much as possible while they are still popular

U2 have nothing to prove and I like waiting - thats half the fun imo.

I love the new RHCP stuff. How ridiculous would they be if they were still making the same kind of frat rock/punk music they used to make when they are now in their 40s, clean & sober, and all grown up. They are different people today and the music reflects that. Frusciante is doing some of his best work, imo.

And I agree that U2 needn't follow anybody's example.
