"Although the real star of the band is really The edge more than anything else and I really really dig the way he plays guitar and the tones he gets out of the instrument. I can just listen to U2 and ignore bono and still get a lot out of the music."
most of his tones are just reiterations of the guitar tone in 'run like hell' by floyd, if not an exact replica.
i don't mind pretentiousness in music, but in bono's case it just sours any chance the band had at making me like one of their songs. he's pretentious to the point of snobbish, and it doesn't help that for all of his soap box confessionals about helping the poor, and preaching about the diabolical nature of greed, he owns a private jet, lives in a multi-million dollar mansion and is more than likely chauffeured everywhere he goes in a nice, cozy limousine. he's the full embodiment of a twat.
