Bono= Glaring inconsistency

Bono gives George Harrison "the bird" after a rant about him in the Leeds UK date on popmart tour at the beginning of the fourth song.

Then by the 21st song, he includes snippets of the self same persons 2 best known songs.

WTF is that about?

Can't someone not like the person but like the art? Why is that inconsistent? I can think of a lot of artist I'd give the finger to, but like some of their songs...

Because IMHO, you do it on front of 80 000 witnesses then celebrate their work smacks of inconsistincies in my book. Thats my opinion and you wont change it, as I wont yours!

The same day or before Gerorge Harrison wrote in a paper:

"Look at a group like U2. Bono and his band are so egocentric - the more you jump around, the bigger your hat is, the more people listen to your music. It's nothing to do with talent. Today there are groups who sell lots of records and then disappear. We will remember U2 in 30 years? Or the Spice Girls? I doubt it"

Well Spice Girls was a girlband and Georga where a member in the biggest boyband of all time.

Because, in spite of his ridiculous opinion of U2's music, George Harrison friggin rocks.

Well, I guess there was no point in posting the thread of you didn't want to hear his opinion.

Good luck with that.

Well, when one person disputed it, you insisted that his opinion didn't matter to you, that you aren't changing yours and your not changing his. Sort of defeats the purpose of the thread, don't you think?

And you didn't even address BVS's point, that enjoying his music doesn't mean liking the person.

Wow, who said that? You sure have a wierd way of twisting things.

So if Bono = Glaring inconsistency based on one little thing he did ten years ago, that wasn't really that inconsistent. Can we judge your posts based on this one dumb thread?

Gman, all I'm saying is that you started this thread, and suddenly are shocked that there's discussion. I thought that's what threads were for.
