I’m not sure how true it is, but it’s my understanding that he blew his voice out.
Oh, come on.
Noah Lennox. Obviously.
I LOLed at “accidentally inventing Coldplay.”
It’s an obvious (and old, very old) joke, but after listening to The Bends for the first time in months?
So true. High and Dry and Fake Plastic Trees invented Coldplay. Exit Music invented Muse.
Radiohead has subtlely aped their own influences (and Thom won’t deny it) but the aforementioned instances are just hilariously accurate.
Paul Cary – Ghost Of A Man.
That wasn’t a Bono impersonation, but I liked the song. Up there with or better than a good deal of U2′s recent material. (2000-)
The singer’s voice is good, but I’d say Bono is in a different league. Bono, at the peak of his abilities and before he started smoking, had probably the best pure singing voice in pop music. He’s not one of the Three Tenors, but in the 1980s and early 90s he was the best the rock community had to offer.
