Exclamation Rolling Stones versus U2!

Well these two long established bands are both touring this summer, and surprisingly enough they've never been matched against each other on this board. Which do you prefer?

Rolling Stones



U2

Re: Rolling Stones versus U2!

In regards to this year live show?
u2 is my vote could careless about seeing the stones live.
Loved the Stones in the 60's and early 70's since then they have been a lousy band milking money on live tours. Although you could say that about a ton of 60's-70's bands.

Granted the 1965-69 period was my favourite for the Stones' and their more recent output is but a shadow of what it was in their glory years. Not surprising though. That kind of thing happens with age to all entertainers. Nonetheless it's just not true that the Stones have been a lousy band since the seventies. Here are my top twelve Rolling Stones' tunes since 1980:

1. One Hit to the Body
2. Harlem Shuffle
3. Mixed Emotions
4. Love Is Strong
5. She's So Cold
6. Start Me Up
7. Doom and Gloom
8. Almost Hear You Sigh
9. Blinded by Love
10. Going to A-Go-Go
11. Rain Fall Down
12. Out of Tears

if any other band had half that many tunes since 1980 that I like as much I'd be pronouncing them to be a very good band indeed. Yet for the Stones it seems to be a big comedown, but that's only because in their peak years they made themselves such an incredibly tough act to follow.
