Where would Bono and Edge be without Adam and Larry?
« on: May 14, 2017, 12:04:01 AM »
Honestly I think they would both be successful musicians, but nowhere near the level of success and quality. U2 is BY FAR MY FAVORITE band and IMO the greatest band in the world.. but I can't help but always think, Bono is not the best voice, Edge isn't the best guitarist, Larry not the best drummer, Adam.. might be the best bass... buy anyway... what I love about these guys, is the 4 of them make this band. I think I got off topic, but yeah, 4 of the best musicians of all time, not the greatest each, but combined, indisputably the greatest.

They are each quite accomplished at what they do...but it's their love of music, their love of performing TOGETHER, their love of their fans, their love of each other, their love of their family and friends...that make them U2. I've known no other band that can compete in overall greatness. But, that's just me!

Love the band. Love the individuals. For me, Larry and Adam are the soul of the band.

I think Riff makes a good point.  Their love for each other (and their audience) puts them in another realm altogether.

And I think what makes them a great band is that each of them know that they rely on the others.

Each member is irreplaceable. If that happens then they are finished. I think we can say with confidence that they will be the same 4 members until they call it quits. Couldn't see them changing up members at this stage in their career.

They're one of the only bands I've ever heard who actually play off one another, he U2 rhythm section is drastically underrated and gives Bono and The Edge the foundation they need. It's a beautiful story and system that only a truly wonderful rock back like U2 can have. Marvelous
