He's made a career out of silly shots at people. Meanwhile, what's the last song he did that you know?

He clearly needs the kind of attention U2 still gets, and the kind that his brother - due to his proximity to U2 - is getting.

People really do take all this too seriously.

Liam is just playing up to his loud, obnoxious, 'rock n roll star' cartoon image.

Is it a bit old now? Probably Yes.

Is it harmless? Yes.

Liam can say what he wants.  He's been rock n roll royalty for a few decades now.

Behind the scenes, Liam is much of a U2 fan as Noel. He's just digging at his brother and given half a chance He'd support U2 too to help sell his album.(Which Noel isn't doing right now on the Joshua Tree tour).

Huge pillar of salt needed for anything Liam says.

I did enjoy watching Liam's set at Glasto and the Wall of Glass single.

Not sure about the 'royalty'.  Liam can say what he wants and now people post comments on the news pages, laughing at him.  Being a gobsh*te won't get him anywhere these days.

I think he's royalty, even though who knows what that word means in this context.  Either way, he was the lead singer of Oasis and an icon in the UK which i think entitles him to speak him mind regardless if people listen or laugh at what he has to say.  Personally, i always thought it was funny when he said something totally stupid that was obviously not true, but that's part of his appeal for me.

Ah, sorry.  I'll explain - it's a cultural and social thing.  I'm from the Merseyside area and I don't give much credence to what Liam says (hence the slightly colourful choice of words above).  Traditionally people from the greater Liverpool area and the greater Manchester area have very often been unkind toward each other.  So yes Liam was an icon throughout the UK other than Merseyside (I should know, my better half is from Essex and they loved Oasis down there) and so they only played in Liverpool about 10 times and I'm quite surprised to see that they got out alive each time(!).  Well at least he supports Manchester City - could be worse.  But any bloke like him walking the streets might get called a 'Manc gobsh*te' by a scouser.
Title: Re: U2 a Rock n Roll Band?
Post by: 73October on August 02, 2017, 01:57:19 PM
I'll put the record straight here.  I like Manchester and many of the people there are good kind hearted people (just look at the response to the arena bombing). In fact I was in Manchester a few weeks ago at Media City UK (the media hub outside of London) and it was great to walk around the area.  There are some very talented and intelligent people in Manchester and it has done a lot to build itself up at the UK's second city.
There's just a long rivalry with Liverpool stemming back 200 years to the industrial revolution where 2 cities in close proximity were in some competition.  Much of the rivalry now is around football and a lot of the general rivalry is friendly banter. 
However, when you get Mancs such as Liam spouting forth unintelligently as he has done so about U2 - that kind of talk just shows how much rubbish a so-called street bloke can talk and it's like a red rag to a bull for some Merseysiders.

Don't get me wrong, I love Oasis (well, their early records) and Noel's still got it.

I don't take Liam seriously, and never have. He doesn't have a good word to say about anyone, aside from Kasabian which tells you everything you need to know.

But seriously Liam - calling U2 'beige'? This is a man who was frontman of post-90s Oasis and the excrement that was Beady Eye - quite simply some of the dullest rock music ever recorded in the history of mankind.

Yes Noel was better than I expected.  I'd even now go and see him again.  He's matured and got on with things.  It's just the our kid syndrome with Liam.  Youngest of 3 boys...we all know he's jealous.  I just wish he'd get through with it but I don't know if he ever will.

Noel has always been a massive U2 fan.

He's always waxed lyrical about them - he became a fan when Fire was released in 1981, his favourite era of U2 is the 90s, The Joshua Tree is one of his ten favourite albums (listed in a Quietus interview a few years back) and he's been pals with Bono for some time now.

As the only songwriting talent of Oasis, his opinions carry a lot more weight than his brother for sure!

To call something beige is to call it dull, boring or uninspiring....bland, conventional, unexciting....

For example i think ATYCLB is a really beige album.

'Bassist Adam Clayton also missed a gig on that same tour in 1993 due to a hangover. It was the first time any member of U2 had ever missed a show and afterwards Clayton gave up drinking alcohol'.

Who played bass in that gig instead of Adam. Or was the gig cancelled ?

Adam's guitar tech Stuart Morgan replaced him, as he knew all the bass parts.
It was in Sydney, around the same night of the gig captured on the DVD.
Adam got himself together in time to film the concert.

I have to agree with that statement. Other than Kite and In a little while, I don't really listen to that album anymore.....

I would not describe JT, WAR, AB, Zooropa, POP, Passengers as "Beige" and the later stuff has moments of beige but it also has moments of surrender

Back in the late 90's, I was general manager at a video store (remember those?).  One of my employees had a book that we’d read while waiting for customers.  The book chronicled  stories of rock and roll access.  Some musicians had multiple entries (i.e. Ozzy snorting ants, biting off bat heads, etc., etc.).

The only U2 entry was a story from the mid-90s of both Gallagher brothers challenging Bono and the Edge to a drinking contest at a bar someplace.  According to the story, at around 4:00 a.m. Bono and the Edge were sitting at the bar totally unphased, almost to the point of appearing to be completely sober.  Whereas one of the Gallagher brothers had to be carried out of the bar.

I haven't seen this story before or since, so can't validate the accuracy.  But if it's true, and if this is the sort of "rock and roll" Lil' Ms. Stunted Gallagher is referring to, than I wonder if he's the one who pi**ed his pants? 

*DISCLAIMER:  Vox and all subsidies of Vox do not promote or condone "drinking contests" or "pi**ing your pants" or "Liam (Lil' Ms. Stunted) Gallagher."

And to answer the question, yes....  yes, indeed, U2 is a rock band.  Even if their color is now more of a beige.

Read Bill Flanagan's 'U2 At The End Of The World'. There was significantly more to what happened than a hangover, as others here who have not read the book always say. They would likely have postponed, but they were about to film Sydney and broadcast it live on PPV, so that show was one of several used as a dress rehearsal, so the show had to go on.

Again, find that book and read it.

This is what Liam does. He opens fire when he's promoting a new album. He'll swagger around claiming there's too many false prophets and that he is the real deal etc etc.

I kind of like his attitude, too many boring bands that don't have much to say.
Liam doesn't hold back. But it's all part of his act, to be more rock n roll, ironically...

'U2's The Edge delivered the eulogy at Adamson's funeral which was held at Carnegie Hall, Dunfermline. He told the mourners that Big Country wrote the songs that he wished U2 could write.'

Big Country's 'Chance' or 'In a Big Country' would have fitted into the 'War' album.

Liam is just playing up to his loud, obnoxious, 'rock n roll star' cartoon image.

It would also help his credibility a lot if he, with Oasis, hadn't already supported U2 on Popmart.

Sugar Mouth Gallagher is echoing what a lot of people here criticise U2 for:

Quote from: Liam Gallagher
"As far as I'm concerned, whether this album's a success or not, some c… has to counteract the B.S.. And I'm that f…ing man. Whether it's Adele or Ed Sheeran… I'm not Ar**d about them, but half of these bands that call themselves guitar bands, they're in that mob, too. They're just running amok.

These c…s are just getting away with murder: you can't tell a guitar band from a pop band these days. No one's cranking it up and having a bit of aggro. They're all going to the same parties, they're all f…ing hanging out, they're all drinking from the same cup, they're all eating at the same f…ing restaurants, and, dare I say it, they all look the same, and dress the same. Someone needs to counteract that. And I'm here to do that."

I would love for them to play some kick ar*e, hard nosed rock n roll on SOE instead of over produced elevator music like they have in the recent past.
