For myself, U2 were at their best at a very wet Milton Keynes Bowl on 22 June 1985 (3 wks before live aid).
Historical note, the line up was: The Faith Brothers, Spear Of Destiny, Billy Bragg, The Ramones, REM, U2
The rain stopped for U2.
Billy Bragg = cock
Ramones in the 80s = cocks
REM = Ok, you can have REM
u2 = cocks
I still win.
- it was notoriously alleged by Boy George that he and the lead singer of Spear of Destiny had had a gay affair. They had once shared a flat, and Kirk Brandon had once been in Culture Club. Kirk sued, but lost, a lot of money.
