    A mate of mine said U2 are shit after I chose an album of theirs as a favourite of mine. I agree that they probably are a Marmite band, but I've seen them play live twice and they were great. I dislike Def Leppard but that's my opinion after watching them once, but they are a popular rock band. I recall someone saying Bowie was overrated on here but to me he is a legend. It's all down to taste at the end of the day. I love Motorhead but to many they were just a loud metal band, but I also can listen to bands like the Eagles and the Moody Blues and enjoy their music. So what bands/artists do you like and dislike ?

    I can't stand Adele. Mariah Carey warbles too much.

    Slightly different, as there’s loads of music I don’t like. But it really annoys me when someone says a particular type of music or an artist is “shit”. Not liking something doesn’t mean it’s shit.

    “Real music” is even more annoying.

    My 2 favourites are (don't laugh) Kate Bush and Enya, could listen to their albums for hours on end.

    U2 have some decent songs but mainly crap, same with Nirvana.

    That annoys me as well now I’m at it. You can like whatever you like. “Don’t laugh” shouldn’t be necessary.

    Coldplay seem to get a lot of stick. My lad loves them, and me personally I reckon they are okay. Otis is an Elbow fan and they are another band that divide opinion !

    Try High n Dry as an album, very different to their later stuff. The first one On Through the Night has a few decent tracks too, but tyhe production is dire.

    Some bands don’t age well for me. The afore mentioned U2 being one, thought they were ace when I was younger whereas I just find them mediocre now with a handful of good songs, one or two great. Considering the size of their back catalogue that’s why I tend to think of them as mediocre. Muse the same. I think how well music ages tells a lot about the quality of an act.

    They were on at Monsters Of Rock and they came across as a pop band. But the crowd went wild for them, then again that could have been the booze and drugs !

    Just to add the only artist I tend to think shit are the ones that come through “talent” shows. There’s a reason nearly all of them disappear without trace as quickly as they arrived.

    I'm not as fan but saw them once at a festival and they were great to be honest.
    I was a bit hammered admittedly.

    Saw Leonard Cohen at a festival around 2006/7.
    Had my son with me who was only little and can't remember a thing.
    I've told him you'll never see a bigger legend than you did that night.

    As it was my son's birthday coming up I treated him to a ticket to see the Who as I was going with a few people. I told him he was going to see one of the best bands of all time. Anyway he told me a couple of years later he didn't like them, and just went along as I had bought him a ticket.
    I appreciated his honesty but still can't understand how anybody dislikes the mighty Who ?

    I don't mind their earlier stuff but they just weren't doing it for us and we knew if we left then we miss the big queues for buses back to town.

    I said to a Paul McCartney fan in the pub once that Paul hadn't done anything good since Wings. And added in fact his best work was in the Beatles. He got the hump and never spoke to me again for about a year !

    I was always a massive Beatles fan (John Lennon in particular) and when they broke up, I never thought things would be the same ever again in the music world. But then Lennon became God and McCartney formed Wings. I loved the Wings albums, 'Ram' and 'Band on the Run', my particular favourites. But as BBR said earlier, McCartney just faded away. I saw him live when he was at Knebworth in 1990 as part of a charity concert. It was outside, and just getting dark by the time he came on stage. He ended with a brilliant rendition of "Hey Jude", and attributed it to 'my best friend ever, John Lennon'. That got the crowd into a frenzy. Just try and imagine 120,000 people singing along! Fantastic! And then to be followed by Pink Floyd!

    I don't like saying McCartney isn't to music that he once was but I just don't think he's done anything worthy for years.
    Venus and Mars and Band On The Run I really liked, but can't think of any decent music from him for a long time. Him and Lennon are legends though and deserve all the plaudits they get.
