Wow, I got a lot to say today. Nobody should try to pick the next U2,
simply because there will never be another. Just as there will never be
another Beatles, The Who, The Doors, Pearl Jam, Nirvana or radiohead. I
am a fan of all these bands and others like Oasis, Janes Addiction. But
each of them or unique and great in their own way. No one will make the
impact on my life as U2 did. But no one will make the impact on my life
like PJ Harvey did the first time I heard her album Rid Of Me, twelve
minutes after I witnessed somebody get hit by a truck and die
instantly. Didn't mean to take it there but my point is you like bands
for different reasons but I don't like Radiohead because they have
integrity like U2, I like them because The Bends kicks major ass.
