Yeah...  He must have gotten all fluttery that something he wrote got a bunch of hits.  So he had to write a rebuttal to show his cred from back in his prime. Or his peak, because it seems these articles are a steep downward trajectory from that.

But...  He says he respects U2 and he's entitled to an opinion.  It's just that I find pi*s floating in a toilet more substantive than these two articles.
No, what he's entitled to is losing his job and getting his ass kicked.

^ a bit strong doncha think?

His analysis is just wrong.  I could say that about many journalists.  Especially those writing for the Guardian/Observer.

No, it's not strong enough! Sommers is excrement.

That's a quite good answer.

 They should have quit in the 90s? Edge should lose his nickname because he's over 50?

I'm glad they're tackling the important issues in the wake of the Paris terrorist atrocities.

Well, one must never pass up an opportunity to critique U2, because although U2 had no to choice but cancel their shows, U2 still obviously sucks, and one would never, ever defend them under normal circumstances.
Excuse you?? I would defend them under every type of circumstances. And I am. Now. And they do NOT "suck".

Do you not think that talking about someone having violence done to them for daring to express an opinion in a peaceful way on a thread directly related to the Paris massacres is a bit ironic?

SARCASM IMPAIRED MUCH? Wow. I'm the person who just spent half the weekend defending Bono's hair. Chill. I'm with you.

^ Thank you for clarifying. You are right; I sometimes have difficulty identifying sarcasm. I suppose I am not very intelligent.

U2 are great, and i'm glad they are fine and fans are. Maybe i'm wrong, but it does not sound like a fan when someone goes ''sucks''. Either a fan or not, if not why posting here?

Okay, obviously we have a language barrier here. Please read my previous comments before you freak out. I was being sarcastic. U2 has been my favorite band for 30 years and will always be my favorite band. If you've seen my other comments on this site, you will know that I defend U2 constantly, even against other fans.

just got round to reading this 'article'.  It's rubbish.  Who gives a sh** about it or the author?  And people want him to be beaten up?  WTF?
