I’ve said this before and it’s gotten me into a fair bit of trouble over the years.
Most of you will know how I feel on this subject, but some of you won’t have read my blog before and therefore might be shocked at what I’m about to say.
Here we go… I don’t like U2.
I don’t like their music and I have a bit of an issue with their lead singer!
I’ve never liked them. Never been into their stuff. I concede that there are one or two classic tracks that everyone in the world should love. But generally I find them very same-y and I’m just not into them. I’m not a big fan of Bono either. I just don’t believe the character. It’s like he’s an actor and he’s not ‘playing’ the role very well.
Most of you are probably horrified. and I’ll probably get a bit of stick for this. But that really is where I stand on U2. Minority opinion I know, but there you have it.
So what does it mean?
Well, very little really.
To you – probably that I’m a musical philistine, that I have no taste, that I should shut up 🙂
But I’ll tell you what it DOESN’T mean! It doesn’t mean I hate Bono, or the other lads in the band. It doesn’t mean I hate U2 fans. Some of my best friends are… yeah you got there before me.
Now you can head off to twitter and say what ever you like about me; but just remember… you’ll be the one doing the hating – NOT ME!
Oh and btw… you can apply this principle to anything else we might disagree on.
