• What! I went to live 8! Man Bono is a good guy and you can’t stand him because you don’t like U2. Not cool 😛

  • I’m a U2 fan, but I’m annoyed at Bono. Namely because at the U2 concert, he decided to use the concert to push his own political agenda. (I put this in my post http://lascene.blogspot.com/2005/10/tale-of-two-bands.html)

    While I won’t dispute that Geldof is a great humanitarian, he also his a jerk. Back in 1985, when Tears For Fears asked Geldof to share with them how the “monies” were going to be distributed with Live Aid, he refused. TFF then delayed committing to the concert. When Geldof said to them if they didn’t play, they would be responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands – TFF resented that and pulled out. I can’t say I blame them.

    I also get a bad feeling for Geldof in the whole Michael Hutchence suicide. Many say that what drove Hutchence to suicide was the fact that Geldof was putting pressure on the mother of Hutchence’s daughter, Paula Yates to deny Hutchence custody of Hutchence’s daughter. While I can’t say how much of this is true – it does leave me with an easy feeling.

    Now I don’t like Eminem either and I do think he should have answered his calls, but both Bono and Geldof do have some spots on their track record.
