1) What was the very first U2 song that you remember hearing?
That would have to be Where The Streets Have No Name, when I was about one and a half years old.

2) If different than #1, what song convinced you that you liked U2?
Probably the entire Joshua Tree album, particularly Red Hill Mining Town, In God’s Country, and Trip Through Your Wires.

3) Name something about the song in #2 (or #1, if applicable) that hooked you on U2?
Everything. The vocals, of course, are what I noticed first, and the music gave such a feeling of freedom, of “roofless-ness,” that I was hooked.

4) What makes you stick with U2 even though they have changed or evolved over the years?
Well, I suppose it’s that they keep making good music. It doesn’t really matter that their sound has changed for me, because I found that when I was first getting into U2, and then when I “rediscovered” them last summer, every album seemed almost like a new band, but still recognizably U2.

5) What band member do you like most and Why?
I can’t say definitely. I like them all for different reasons. It really depends on which song I’m listening to. It’s hard to play favourites when without just one of the band members, U2 wouldn’t be the same band.

6) Where are you from and how much radio airplay does U2 get in your area?
I am from New Orleans, Louisiana. U2 gets little to no airplay here anymore. Actually, the last time I remember hearing them on the radio was when HTDAAB was released; one station played the whole album because, as one of the DJs said, sounding very put-upon, “We have to play them. They’re the biggest band in the world.” The DJs on this station went on to make fun of every song after it played. (Vertigo? Uh, VertiNO! What was Bone-oh thinking? That is his name, right? Bone-oh?)
All the stations here are either hip-hop, pop, or classical now, so U2 is “not cool,” and everyone I’m around in this city has barely even heard of U2.
It’s sort of scary.

Thank you!

WOW! That has to be the worst feeling in the world, to know that people do not know and/or appreciate what U2 has done for so many things, even beyond the music scene... Have you been to a show yet? I have added you as a friend.
