    At least, that's what U2's manager Paul McGuinness said

    Mr. McGuinness, as a Deadhead, I'd like to say "Fuck off."

    Being all anti-establishment is great, until the anti-establishers get around your established rules, huh?

    Funny, in that it's generally opposed to the stance U2 has taken on this stuff.

    One likes to believe
    In the freedom of music
    But glittering prizes
    And endless compromises
    Shatter the illusion
    Of integrity

    For the words of the profits
    Are written on the studio wall,
    Concert hall ---
    Echoes with the sounds...
    Of salesmen.

    (Yes, it's a Rush-jack. :D )

    He certainly is upset about some of these Fly By Night piracy operations.

    Most hippy music does suck. Play me a song, not a 29-minute guitar riff with accompanying bongos.

    Went to see a Phish show when I lived in Florida. Dear God that's a day and a half of my life I will never get back.

    A day and a half? They only played three songs?
