Band membeer's best individual perfomance in a song
« on: December 22, 2017, 12:27:01 PM »
so title is self explanatory, I will go first

Best Vocal
Bono : WOWY

Best Guitar Work
The Edge; The Fly/UTEOTW

Best Bassline:
Adam Clayton : New years day/The Blackout

Best Drumtrack
Larry Mullen Jnr: Mofo/Streets Have no Name/SBS

Feel free to add more than one track, the above is what i can think of right now, i'm sure others will add their own to this...

Sorry but Edge wrote the bass riff for Blackout. Adam said it in that radio interview with the girl (Chris Moyles?)

Um... Lately I'm been amazed by Larry's drumming and I love his occasional off-beats: Iris, 13 (There is a Light), Get Out oyow.

Hard to argue with any of those.  I'd submit Adam's bass playing in the live version of "Please" and Bono's vocal in "Heartland" for consideration.  Actually, I think Bono's guest vocal on "In a Lifetime" (Clannad) is the best vocal he's ever laid down.  It will be interesting to see what others think.
