I don't know where to begin this posting except I am continously amazed by U2. I watched the Hall of Fame Induction on VH1 last night and I was thinking about how many years I have always loved U2.
Hearing Bruce Springsteen's speech(and the fact that he's Irish-Italian like myself) was so touching. I literally was crying my ass off for at least 20 of the 45 minutes or so when U2 were on. I have a huge collection of cds of at least 600 and U2 have their own section. They are to me the greatest band of all time. What attracts them to me is first the power of their music and the deepness of their songs. They seem like four friends I wish I could hang out with. Their is a sincerity in the way they have always presented themselves. Yet, they are four friends who just wanted to play music by being music lovers. They are the reason I listen to music, why I write songs of my own, and why music is not just about the latest fashion trend. They are real to the bone and when you take away all the hoopla and big budget shows, you have four amazing musicians making some of the most beautiful music I have ever heard.
Throughout my life, I had to endure a lot of obstacles as we all do. U2 has been that one band that for anyone who knows me will say Chris-lyricist, singer, music fan, U2 fanatic. The music is what matters to me.
