Rock and Roll is a young man's game
U2 is now irrelevant. I'm sure the music is nice and layered, polished up etc, but as I've said on many forums here relating to U2, they somehow lost something very real in their music. Maybe most rockers run into this as the money makes the angst go away. I guess the Rolling Stones fall into this category too... 20+ years of music production and not much to show for it. Rock and Roll is a young man's game.
