RushFanForever Posted October 6, 2019 Share Posted October 6, 2019 (edited) I discovered this recent interview Roger Waters did with Rolling Stone magazine here. The following stands out in regards to Pink Floyd and U2 below from the above article. "I remember when we did The Wall [in 1979] being criticized by Bono. U2 were a very young band, and they’re going [affects Irish accent], “Oh, we can’t stand all that theatrical nonsense that Pink Floyd do. We just play our music and the songs unto themselves and blah, blah, blah.” Oh really? All they did for the rest of their f**king career was copy what I’d been doing and continue to do. So good luck to them, but what a load of bulls**t. If you lead them, people will follow." When U2 was starting out, they were a post-punk band.
