Steve Brown I have no partiality to U2 at all. That being said, I don't really hear any similarities between the two songs. Not enough to warrant a lawsuit.
Ian Gray "Mullaney added that Rose has waited all these years to file suit because he felt that doing so at the time could have damaged his career." What career? All I see is some clown trying to milk some $ from U2. Rose's track is too dissimilar from The Fly which is based on The Edge's prominent guitar lick and overall groove. This case should be thrown out.
Bill Annen These clowns looking for a payday coming out of the closet almost 30 years later?? Led Zeppelin all over again. Where were you in 1991 dude?
Rick Broshear Like everyone else has said, 25 years later? Maybe Eddie Van Halen should sue him. To me a guitar part here or there sounded like Eruption.
Martin Barrows I was going to say the same....if it's a ripoff and you knew it then, why wait until now to file a suit?
Ken Gorry Stairway case was only heard last year, maybe they couldn't afford to sue before now..
Nikki Brown Bono could use his paycheck from being a Monsanto spokesperson to pay up.
Andy Walker I hope he takes the arrogant pricks to the cleaners
Don G. Heick Start writing' that check Bono!
Craig Sim They should be sued for crimes to music
Tim Stever Don't sound the same.
Behlsie RN 25 years later?!?!?!?!?

Gayle Williams I've seen Aerosmith twice and the Stones twice. There's no contest. There's a reason the Stones can sell out AT&T stadium and Aerosmith can't even sell out the auditorium at Choctaw Casino in Oklahoma.
Adam Marr Actually Charlie is a much better drummer than Joey. And In the songwriting department, Aerosmith doesn't even compare to the Stones. Since 1987 they've had to have Desmond Child, Jim Vallance and other songwriting doctors write music for them.
Tim Kelly I heard Charlie is taking applications for a new butler. Joey should take note.
Aris Chapa Joey Kramer you're a prick and a half ass drummer compared to Charlie Watts. I've heard polka drummers better than you.
Vivian Jennings JK needs to put the crack pipe down. At least I hope thats why hes being so stupid. I love Aerosmith, but this barely known clown of the group needs to ck himself into rehab, or psych ward.
Lee Underwood Joey is entitled to his opinion but personally, I would much rather see the Rolling Stones live over Aerosmith. I also think Charlie Watts is a better drummer.
Jesse Esparza I'd take Aerosmith any day over the Stones, it's just a personal taste for me. However, Joey is like the obnoxious middle child always looking for attention. The best drummer in Aerosmith is Steven Tyler lol
Andy Irwin I never even heard of kramer until today. The first time I saw Aerosmith on TV with Run DMC I honestly thought they were a rolling Stones tribute act. Not a huge fan of either but it's like oasis putting the Beatles down.
Michael Ventura Aerosmith made thier career trying to be the 1969 Rolling Stones.Maybe Joey should listen to the Get yer yas yas version of Midnight Rambler and then take stock of what he said.Apart from Toys in the Attic and Rocks,Aerosmith never even came close.
Dennis August Lange I think Watts made the band what it is. His abilities at jazz or blues or Rock, his contributions on albums like Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers, and some girls cannot be overstated. He's a master at the Jazz Rock infusion. Most drummers that learn the constant beat with no variation just do not understand Charlie Watts. The most idiotic thing repeated over time has been that locks can't keep a beat. What a joke
Robert Schramm When people talk about great drummers I've never heard the name Joey Kramer ever come up.
Jeffrey 'Jeff' Brown Saw the Stones when they were last in Atlanta. Awesome show. Performed for nearly two hours. Aerosmith isn't worth a dime live in my opinion. "Saw" them twice, '79 and around 2010 or '11. Sucked both times. Stoned to the point of not understanding a word Tyler "sang" and a 45 minute set at my last Aerosmith "show". Never again but I'd pay to see the Stones. Every time.
Michelene Jackman That's crazy ... Charlie is highly respected in quite a few circles, specifically in the jazz realm. I've seen Aerosmith at least once, after they got sober. I've seen the Stones several times and I'd be willing to see them again. They're great live.
Dennis August Lange In my view that's exactly opposite, Aerosmith drumming has been the one thing hindering them from the next level. Charlie Watts is a drummers drummer. That's why untalented people like this aeroSmith boy doesn't understand it
Jeremiah Reese Funny, thats how I felt about aerosmith. Anytime I hear any of the newer tunes of thiers, I cringe and think ugh, they just sold out! This is garbage. Steven tylers vocals are all used up and and that whole cross dressing gypsy look that he thinks woman or whoever is attracted to, NOT! And drums, don't even get me started there. Ive never really heard anything about their drummer that couldnt be replicated by a casio keyboard. Am I a stones fan? Eh not hugely. But you can't deny they still sell out huge venues and must be doing something right even if they all arent the best musicians....
Terry Wolman Joey has always been a good rock drummer. Charlie has a jazz background and knows how to swing........But to say you're better than someone who's been around much longer is totally disrespectful. I've loved Aerosmith since '76, but I'll never forget what Peter Criss said about Joey when they toured together in '03........"He was a real jerk". In my opinion technique does not necessarily make someone a better musician. Was Ringo Starr a great technician? Probably not.......But his parts perfectly complemented the songs.
Lisa Jean Aerosmith Is the Best Live Band. They sound best live . No other band comes close. I think Joey was having a twitchy moment when he said this.. 😉
Jeff Wolowiec Really now? When you're an old, angry, coked out, Trump supporter mediocre drummer this is the best you can come up with? Charlie F*ckin Watts...One of the coolest person's ever to play drums and a true original. I'm shaking my head...
Reed Barton Who cares? The Stones are great, Aerosmith is great, so many bands are great. And personally I think The Beatles and Nirvana are the most overrated, mediocre bands of all time. It doesn't matter though. Go listen to your music.
Jason Pinkney Say what you want, Aerosmith has never used backing tracks and an army of extra musicians on stage. Only a keyboard player to play what Tyler plays on the records.
Brandon Atkinson Im a huge fan of both bands. Always been my top two bands but I guess musicians draw influence from what interest them and not everyone is going to like what is big. The Stones will always Rock!!
Chris Brooks Nobody listens to either of these bands for their drummers. They're both solid but that's about it (which is plenty). For my taste, Aerosmith is much better live, and write better songs. But look at it this way - as for what Joey has to say about Charlie - if you asked Charlie about Joey, he'd say "who?"
Kelly Cordahl Aerosmith is much better live. You can't deny the Stones have written epic songs, but they never seemed that tight live. Just my 2 cents.
Greg Stossel I always thought Aerosmith was a Rolling Stones clone to begin with. Both are great live. But there would have been no Aerosmith without the Stones. Joey Kramer is a dick anyway.
Brad Young I love both bands but Aerosmith is really getting arrogant here. Seems like fellow rockers would respect music of other bands....especially the Stones.

Sean Brown Their is a bootleg of the album they were going to release instead, called "Cult In The West", that's even better than this awesome album, if you can believe that. Track it down if you can.
Bill Thornton The most intense live album of all time. I bought it when I was 14 and used the gatefold to clean the seeds out of my pot. The memories we make 😎

Jamie Corradini All of them are different levels of garbage. The best thing he did was suckstart that shotgun.
Mason Frost I guess, if I had to pick one, it would be Bleach...........since that's what I want to drink whenever I hear their music.
John J Umile If you don't like Nirvana and what Kurt did for rock music then leave this page. He was and will always be a legend of rock music.
Don G. Heick They suck!!
Mathew Ellsworth 1. In Utero 2. Nevermind 3. Unplugged 4. Incesticide 5 Bleach
Chad Cretcher That was so basic. If you put a greatest hits album in you should be fired. Lame.
Todd Zeidner Most depressing band of all time!!!

Danny Grissom This Kong is 100ft. 4x bigger than Kong 2005. Also it is geared up to battle Godzilla in 2020. Look for an extra scene at the end of the credits.

Draven K Rader Thanks for that Billy. I figured it was "Today". Glad you stayed with us. Your "Gish" cassette did me wonders as a kid. Hope to see you again someday on tour. Much love.
Brandon Millis When they were in their heyday, I remember the only fans they had were young girls into boybands and pumpkins. Maybe It was just my location, I don't know.
Terry Houton All that sad, depressing music had us all contemplating suicide in the 90's.
John J Umile Love Smashing Pumpkins. My favorite songs by them are Disarm and Thirty-Three. But they have a lot of great songs.
Steven Ciaburri How did the music go from partying , hot chicks and fast cars in the 80's to self loathing and hating yourself in the 90's lol
Scott Yancey From one of your old fans back in the day.......please, pack it in and retire. It's over.
Beaumont Miles I considered suicide whenever a Smashing Pumpkins song came on the radio...
Sabrina Moonflower I've seen some of his recent Facebook talks with fans. He's still very much depressed. There's no hiding it.
Ben Pocock I'm glad you didn't do it, Billy.
Mike Costa So why is he still whining today?
Don Barclay Listening to that shit makes me want to go for it...
Samantha Acevedo Weren't we all a little suicidey in the 90's
Timothy Stone Ultimate Classic Rock Facebook Page should consider suicide.
Michael Atherton Worst vocalist in the history of Rock!
