so basically what we are all saying is that Adam is the only decent member of the band  :P *ducks*

Everytime you say "duck" are you:
--> Eating a duck
--> Chasing a duck Chief Wiggum style
--> Playing Duck Duck Goose
--> Looking at a picture of Daffy Duck

If you answer correctly, you are garanteed a choice 32,000 or a pet duck  ;) ;D

Oh no Angel, I don't mean that Adam is the only member of U2 that is worth anything.  I just happen to love the bass line in Boots and just am so excited to see a song showcase his talent. .....U2 is a cohesive team; they are not U2 without each other.........They each rock!!

I think Adam Clayton is a fine bass player. Many people have said it before; although is basslines are often simple they seem to fit perfectly in the song. Now I'm not a musician, so I won't make a judgement on that. The fact is, he is original. U2 have of course always been known for their original sound and I think especially Adam is highly responsible for that.

I still wonder if he'll ever develop his bass skills more, so that he can play a better solo than Gloria. It should be possible I think, just listen to Lemon, Do you feel loved, If you wear that velvet dress (50% of that song is all about Adam!) and of course PLEASE. I really love that bass line and especially the studio version seems quite difficult to play. It sounds to me the most as Adam shortly after his kind of 'renaissance' on top of creativity.

I last read about a hypnotizing bass part in a new U2 song on No Line on the Horizon (Edge called it like that), so I'm looking forward to listen the new album!

Adam is to me really a cool guy who just loves what he's doing and he's very relaxed. He doesn't force to give his opinion on whatever the subject is and that shows wisdom.

Yeah....I guess I appreciate him.... ;)
