  1. I assume the purpose of the performance was to build up the hype for their upcoming tour. I have to admit it left me feeling a little flat.
  2. Yeah, I posted this a couple of weeks ago. Nobody really seemed to care but me and PinkFloyd1973. Here's an update: The Police rehearsing in Vancouver? Every little thing The Police ever did was magic to the band's fans. On Wednesday, Vancouver's Rock 101 FM's Bro' Jake Show reported that the '80s rockers were rehearsing at North Vancouver's Lions Gate Studios, preparing for a highly-anticipated 30-year reunion tour. No one was available officially to confirm or deny the report. A receptionist would only allow that "there have been a lot of calls this morning." Rock 101 recei
  3. I gotta say, that isn't the reaction I thought this post would garner. Not with all the Bono-bashing that goes on around here. Yes, there are U2 songs that might do well sung in a church. There are, however, some that don't really have that much religious imagery, such as "Mysterious Ways" which the article mentioned.
  4. If this isn't already one of the signs of the apocalypse, it should be (and I'm one of the biggest U2 fans you will meet): LONDON (Reuters) - For Anglicans who still haven't found what they're looking for, the Church of England is staging its first "U2-charist" communion service -- replacing hymns with hit songs by the Irish supergroup. "Rock music can be a vehicle of immense spirituality," said Bishop of Grantham Timothy Ellis, announcing plans for the unique service in the central English town of Lincoln in May. A live band is to play U2 classics like "Beautiful Day" and "Mysteri

    I completely agree.
  6. Saw this commercial the other night. It's the Cowboy Junkies' version of the Lou Reed song "Sweet Jane". Came out sometime in the early 90's, I believe.
  7. For anyone that cares..... Sting May Be Reuniting With The Police It’s looking more certain than ever that Sting is about to reunite with his original band, The Police. The signs are strong, with enough clues available so that even Colonel Mustard could figure it out. Here’s one: Yesterday, former Policemen Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland were guests, with their families, at a Malibu birthday party for Sting’s better half, Trudie Styler. Their appearance caused quite a stir. And on Thursday night at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, Sting dedicated a lute version
  8. I got this game for my kids for Christmas. At least that's what I told them. I actually bought it so I could play it! I stumbled upon one in a store before Christmas and my wife had to drag me away from it. Now, everybody in the house, including her, is hooked. Great game.
  9. Happy New Year, TP. Things started disintegrating between them during their last two albums. Sting began exercising almost complete creative control and Andy and Stewart were only allowed one song each on each album. Andy had an instrumental song on Zenyatta Mondatta that Sting refused to play bass on. The song wound up winning a Grammy that year for Best Rock Instrumental. I blame Sting for their demise. All in all, it's up to him whether the reunion happens or not.
  10. Courtesy of billboard.com.... Rumors are swirling that the Police will reunite for 2007 dates in England and the United States, which would be the legendary trio's first since disbanding in 1986. Sources tell Billboard.com the reports are legitimate but would not publicly comment until final details are nearer to completion. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the release of "Roxanne," the single that broke the Police in the United States. In a statement issued last month, A&M Records said, "It is our intention to mark the anniversary by doing something special with the band's ca
  11. "Happiness..." is by far my favorite album by them. I've been a big fan pretty much since their beginning, but their last CD was horrible.
  12. I was a big Soundgarden fan from the moment I heard "Outshined". I rank their next album, Superunknown, as one of my all-time faves. I remember getting a friend of mine hooked on them by playing "Outshined" very loud at a party we were at. The song rocks.
  13. From what I understand she basically received no punishment. House arrest and probation I believe. Had it of been a man that did the same things to a 14-year-old girl, I dare say the outcome would have been much more severe for him. That being said, if I was the 14-year-old boy, I would have done the same thing. She is some smokin' hot babe!!
  14. I hear ya. Somehow I managed to get around the premise of the show and watch it anyway.
  15. Wassup Peachy?? If I was in his band, I'd probably kick him out too. Sell-out!!! Maybe they'll take him back. Of course he's gonna win the whole thing so it doesn't really matter!! You watched Rock Star last year didn't you? My wife was in Nashville this past Monday and Tuesday and ran into Marty Casey at the hotel she was staying at. Although I wasn't too crazy about the whole premise of the show, I really liked Marty. Pretty cool.
  16. Hey Peach, I'm a big fan of this guy too. I went to his band's website and his picture has been blacked out on the front page. Reckon he's been kicked out of the band? My wife has informed me of her plans to run off with Ace should I slip up.
  17. My wife's a big H&O fan. She has this album as well as just about every other thing they've done. I was forced to listen to the "Our Kind of Soul" CD on a road trip and I must say I was not expecting to enjoy it too much. I got so burned out on 80's music during the 80's that I really don't have much interest in hearing most of it nowadays. I was not aware that this new CD was a cover of soul songs. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. I, too, am more fond of the early H&O sound. "Love TKO" is an awesome song. I have never heard the original, but Daryl does a super job on
  18. Yeah, Marc, you're kinda by yourself way over there. Are we all east-coasters? Psychocatholic - Howdy neighbor!
  19. Is this guy late for everything??
  20. No problem. It was a good show, only I wish they would've sang at least one older song. I don't watch Conan but he was hilarious when he was out on the street interviewing the people in line.
  21. As far as I know it's this Thursday. I saw an ad for Conan's show on TV and it said U2 was going to be on Thursday's show. I looked at the program guide and it said nothing about U2. I then went to VH1, to their Rock on TV section, and it said that U2 was going to be on. It also mentioned one or two other folks that were scheduled to appear. Now I see this article today stating that they're going to be the only ones on the show.
  22. NEW YORK (AP) -- In his 12 years in charge of booking musical guests on Conan O'Brien's "Late Night," Jim Pitt always listed U2 and Johnny Cash as the dream artists he'd tried but never succeeded in getting. He lost his chance with the late Cash, but the U2 dream is coming true Thursday in a major way. O'Brien will turn over his entire show to the band, which is in New York for seven sold-out engagements at Madison Square Garden. "We were able to offer them something to feel enough like an event for them to do the show," Pitt said. "It's basically 'Late Night with Conan O'Brien,' the
