Default Re: Larry Mullen

[quote=Stu_Strib;69698]I find Larry Mullen's drumming extremely boring and uninspiring. His drumming, however, does fit the music, which is most important. [quote]

I feel the same way about Ringo Starr. Except not many people cite Larry Mullen as an influence, while everyone who has come within 10 feet of a drumset cites Ringo Starr, including my cat.

Larry plays exactly what the music needs. He's not flashy - no one in U2 is flashy - but U2 is like the Beatles in that they have great songwriting but pretty simple music.

That's the stuff that endures, like it or not.
