Bono, 37, told a sell-out crowd during PopMart  at Leeds: "Good people of Yorkshire, you are making a terrible mistake.
"George Harrison says you shouldn't be here. He said it's all about big hats, lemons and egos."
Then sticking his finger in the air in a rude gesture, Bono barked: "This one's for you George, pump it up!"

The crowd cheered U2 and jeered Harrison.

When U2 played the Popmart concert at Leeds Bono said someting like George Harrison says you shouldn't be here, it's all big hats and lemons before sticking a middle finger up and going in to a song ... if memory serves correct. The crowd applauded loudly.

"After I moved to Hollywood, I was mired in a series of degrading, soul-crushing menial jobs. For a while, I was a professional alphabetizer. Were it not for this album, I would've murdered someone."

This says more about Bon Jovi and it's cult of personality around Jon Bon Jovi, than it does about U2, but when Richie Sambora left the band in the middle of a tour and Jon called his bluff by continuing the tour, Jon told the Guardian newspaper that it wasn't like Richie Sambora was the Edge, and the tour couldn't continue without him.

Sambora retorted in the media a few days later that Jon should simply hire the Edge.

I think they worked it out....

BTW, Bon Jovi, and Jon himself, are nothing without Richie...

Wasn't Harrison actually there that night, watching from the soundboard?

I don't know about that but his comments had been printed in the UK tabloids that week. I was there though! It was great!

Can't find the quotes, but I do remember that Weezer said they wished they could be like U2 around ATYCLB in that U2 still had so much passion and energy for the music after that long. I also remember reading an interview where whatsername from Evenesence said she didn't like the countdown to Vertigo.

I remember John Lydon really slating "One" on a radio review show way back when it first came out. He seemed to absolutely despise the song and the band. Made me laugh as he made a sort of obscene comment through a euphamism on live Radio 1!
