7 Reasons why Miles Davis is better than U2

  • Was a founding member of no less than 4 different styles of music. It's hard enough to pull an Achtung Baby, but 4 times is incredible.
  • He had an eye for talented musicians, and the ability to help them develop to their full potential. Around 30 unknowns joined and later left Miles' band to become acclaimed bandleaders themselves.
  • Lyrics. Who needs lyrics, just play great music.
  • His amazing catalog of music. At least a dozen of his albums are seen as undeniable masterpieces. U2, The Beatles, The Stones, no one can match that.
  • He never had a mullet.
  • His concerts, setlists and songs were ever changing. The tempo, solos, length, every aspect was fair game to new interpretation.
  • He was a ture badass. He once almost stabbed Charlie 'Bird' Parker for pawning his possesions for drug money. When asked about his sidemen being drug addicts he said 'I wouldn't care if he came up on the bandstand in his BVD's and with one arm, just so he was there. He's got the fire I want'.

7 Reasons why Scott Stapp is Better than Johnny Swallow:
  1. Swallow has heard of Stapp, but Stapp has never heard of Swallow (lucky Stapp).
  2. Despite the views on Interference, Stapp has millions of adoring women drooling over him. Swallow just has his mirror as his only fan.
  3. Stapp is a singer - meaning he's loved by default (except here on Interference). In contrast, barring a few exceptions, the drummer is largely overlooked - and, of course, Swallow is a drummer. Don't believe me? Name the singer (or one of the singers) of these famous groups: The Eagles, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins, R.E.M. Now, quick, name the drummer of these same groups. Not so easy, is it?
  4. Stapp is married with children. Swallow can't even get a date.
  5. Stapp's Creed may not be liked by most here on Interference, but they have sold tens of millions of albums. Swallow's group has sold... oh wait, Swallow doesn't have a group.
  6. Stapp and Creed are regularly featured on MTV. Swallow can't even appear as an extra on TRL.
  7. Stapp adores U2. Swallow, although he pretends otherwise, adores Stapp/Creed. Enough said.

Mile's is a legend in the Jazz world. U2 will be legends in the world of rock.

You all are closet Creed fans and you know it. This thread is about MILES DAVIS and you all bring up Creed. The only logical explination is that you are really just adoring fans of the band that have yet to overcome your fear. It's ok, I once was there as well. But just know that you love Creed and accept that it's ok to rock harder than you've ever rocked before, you'll thank me for it.

Back to the subject of this thread though, Miles Davis. I just saw that I spelled 'true' as 'ture' in my post. True badass. Bono never pimped for drug money, so he's not in the same ball park as Miles.

I agree with 5 out of those 7 reasons
I don't think the lyrics and the setlist thing makes much sense
