Re: M&T Among League's Best
Being the resident U2 uber fanboy, I feel the need (now that this thread is deemed off topic) to defend my boys a little ....
To say they're not talented is just silly. These are four poor kids who were basically self taught up until the period between Rattle & Hum and Achtung Baby. Let that sink in for a second. They made one of the best selling albums of all time on raw, untrained talent then followed it up with what some folks in the music business to be the best album ever made by anyone.
The Edge is one of the best guitarists to ever play. That's not me saying it. That's people in the industry saying it. Not many guitarists can lay claim to their own sound -- maybe a half dozen or so -- but he managed to do just that.
Point being, you may not like their music, style, etc and that's fine. But to throw aside the talent is a silly stance. You don't have 35+ years of success by faking it or getting by with no talent.
