Me too. When I looked up that pic just now, I found this mini article. According to this guy, it may have been in reference to rumours from a few days earlier that Axl was found dead. I have no idea if thats accurate though? It sure doesnt appear to be Axls silhouette to my eyes.

for those wondering about that "ghost" pic- it is from Axls Twitter on dec 3 2014. he was referencing a fake story that came out that he was dead the day before.  the tweet before this pic said "if I'm dead, do I still have to pay taxes?"

 

the pic appears to me to be on a computer monitor in the studio which he could have googled. in between takes of "rock the rock".

 

or it could be a double talkin jive reference to finding a head and an arm in a garbage can outside the music studio. 

or more likely it is paul tobias' cryogenically frozen body waiting to be thawed out for when Axl is ready to have Slash leave again. lol

Shinedown is one of my worst concert experience. I saw them at Rock im Park (sister festival of Rock am Ring) in 2016 and they had like 60 minute slot and the dude, singer, whatever his name is talked for like 25 minutes. 

Bono could talk for 60 mins! :facepalm:

A friend of mine is a big U2 fan, saw them on every tour since Achtung Baby and after the concert in cologne in 2017 he said it was his last one because it felt like 'a lesson in politics' 

I like U2's music but Bono made me sell the tickets I had for their last tour (best choice I ever made)

That's weird, man. I've never been to a U2 concert, but I can't imagine that his political statements or speeches (whether I'd agree with it or not) would ruin the music experience for me, unless his speeches are longer than the setlist, but I doubt that to be the case.

Yes. I cannot listen to Floyd/Waters much these days because of all of the hectoring to be honest, well that and them being pretentious studenty wankery.

Roger got booed out of stage here in Brazil because of his little known in the political situation around and trying way too hard to SJW Brazillians. 

Everybody chanted "shut up and sing", he kept talking then got booed.

I agree with most, if not all, of Waters core positions. But I will say that in his role as activist he is not as gifted as he is in his role as a songwriter. As mentioned, he doesn't always seem to do his homework and has a fairly surface analysis of the current events in the many cities he plays. But also its like him and Bono can feel the power and potential of these musical gatherings and so they do their best to harness the energy of the moment to inspire people. Thing is, often times their speeches are more didactic than inspirational. 

Im struggling to form my thought, but basically theres something to the "those who cant do, teach" thing. Like, actually inspire me to act rather then tell me that I should be inspired to act.

All that said, I saw The Wall tour 3 times and loved it and was inspired. I felt represented in the images of resistance. Only one incredibly brief talk. The music, lyrics and theatrics did all the messaging. At the intermission pictures of soldiers and civilians who'd been killed in the current and recent wars were projected onto the wall. During Another Brick, intercity children came out to sing the refrain. Who can argue with any of that.

And during the climax of Bring The Boys Back Home - a peak moment of the show - this Eisenhower quote was dramatically displayed, line by line, in synch with the music:

"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed."

Was very moving. And then Comfortably Numb played and, just, on with the show. I wouldnt change one thing about it. But he's so chatty and literal of late.

Haha... seriously? So you get, like, two hours of music, and three hours of Bono going on about the EU and Africa?

So The Simpsons got it right.

Is Bono also a EU fan?

Fuck me, there is another reason to hate him and U2. The guy constantly exceeds expectations.

Why are we talking about U2?

Because they are a fine band and Bono is a wise man and you can only fill so many pages with a rumour about Slash going over to Axl's house.

I would sooner stick knitting needles into my ears than listen to U2 attempt to play music, or Bono pontificate.

I love how these threads devolve- How does the original topic of discussion (namely the delusional idea that new music from this band might well be on the horizon) mutate so drastically into bashing other completely unrelated bands (most of whom- like 'em or hate 'em- have at least put out more that 4.5 LP's of original material in the last 35 years ).

Oh yeah- coincidentally this is what Bob Dylan thought when he saw Axl sashay up to the mike in boxer briefs and combat boots demanding some reggae back in '92:
