when you're a band that big do you still soundcheck or do people do it for you?
for about 10 hours.
U2 were the worst band I ever saw live.
I was forced by my parents :(
I hate U2. So, so much.
*calm down sarah, calm down*
How can you be forced to go to a gig by your parents? JUST SAY NO (follow Zamo's lead)
for parental disipline. I'd choose a whip myself
now they just give me the cut-throat sign and that's me pretty much put in my place.
U2 when i saw them were great.
Before they sucked ass and bono became worlds biggest hypocrite (tm)
if you ignore any music they played that was written post1994 it was amazing.
with his pseudo world saving BS
still do it themselves. i doubt U2 do.
its funny how you could tell the size of the egos of the musicians at ATP; bands like A Silver Mt Zion and Wilco had no problem with everyone watching their soundchecks, whilst Echo and The Crappymen had the whole area blocked off.
given that it apparently lasted for 12 hours. If you believe everything Steve Albini tells you, anyway.
company in my back 20 times through. or thats what it felt like.
my friend won a competition to see them soundcheck at madision square gardens.
but obviously they have a massive crew who basically do everything and then U2 show up and play a couple of tunes.
I don't think the rolling stones soundcheck though?
or just the soundcheck? what a shitty prize
if bono doesn't have to do it i don't see why I should.
Apparently it was some radio phone in thing. He is a brit, and was in new york on holiday.but you had to have tickets to the show anyway to be apllicable for the competiion. He did. Apparently a few hundred people got to go to the soundcheck and U2 do it all the time.
They get people to soundcheck for them. Apparently that's how Editors got started.
i hope that's true.
I know someone who knows the bassist from editors. he fancies her.
now THAT'S true.
I thought the bassist from Editors was a guy.
fancies my friend.
the ugly one from editors.
