I know how to play Everlong on guitar, I learnt it because a friend of mine wanted to record a version and wanted me to play guitar. I never got into the song that much, but I quite liked it. Thanks for the heads-up Matt, I'll give a listen to that songs and report back
"You preach what you need to hear. You sing your life, and you want it to count, I suppose. I'm hoping people are tired of singers whose mouths are filled with words that were written for them and they don't believe. Their arms and legs move in directions that other people choreograph."
- Bono, 2000, Rolling Stone
did you know
Bono sung in the 1985 Band Aid, but wasn't allowed to send his voice over through tape to be allowed in the 2005 Band aid 20. He had to fly over and perform for his position.
