    I just realized U2 has a song called "One." My bad.

    We play 1 U2 song. Streets Have No Names..

    All due respect to U2 but they are not exactly my cup o' tea.

    I prefer Pink Floyd, Dream Theatre and a zillion other bands.

    I may have never bought a U2 album but neither have I changed radio channels when they come on. I don't dislike them, I just don't like them. Know what I mean?

    We have a local U2 tribute act. Nice guys. But, to me, they aren't much more than Elvis impersonators.

    Mother is the only PF song I really liked. There are a few more that I find worthwhile. My favorite David Gilmour work though was with the lovely and talented Kate Bush.

    Oh there's plenty of good U2 songs. I do like their live versions as they often extend the instrumental.

    One good (cover) U2 song done only live is "You've Lost that loving feeling"

    I never liked TG much (I know, it kills my cred to say it). This may have to do with the fact that I have never been able to get my hands on a high quality recording of their music.

    If you are looking for a guitar band, you might like these guys.

    With that group, I think taking in the live act was part of the experience, anyway, as they were as much about performance art as they were music.

    Thats possible. I discovered this sort of music in about 1993, so its before my time.
