    A lot of his drumming with U2 is buried in the mix with so much over dubs and producers adding their own effects ,maybe he was getting frustrated with it and needed another outlet.

    his work on Cooper's album is just awesome !
  3. After 7 seconds I expect to hear the words....... So you never knew love, Until you crossed the line of grace
  4. New album next February. Can't wait, there's always a few gems on every album. Hopefully the rest of the album is closer to Paranormal than what the first single (cover of Lou Reed's Rock and Roll) is ... ick.
  5. “When we put the record together, we said, ‘Let’s do something unique that no one would expect.’ Well, Larry Mullen Jr. from U2 on drums was really a great idea only because he doesn’t play drums like your normal rock drummer. He’ll go to a hi-hat/tom-tom, rather than a hi-hat/snare, and it changes the whole bottom of the record. Even though it rocks as hard as anything, but it sounds differently. It just has a different sound to it. And I’ve never had a drummer ever come to me and say, ‘Let me see the lyrics.’ I went, ‘What?! Why would a drummer want to see any of the lyrics?’ He said, ‘That’s how I interpret U2’s songs. I listen to the lyrics first, and then I write the drum parts.’ And I just went, ‘This is going to be great! A guy that actually cares about the lyrics!’”

  6. Is Larry on Alice Coopers new album ? Sure I read that
  7. I don't think people my age, (born 1975) realise just how bad ass Alice Cooper was in the 1970's and how he galvanised so many misfits from rock, metal, punk, etc.
