I'm Tara and obviously, I'm a U2 fan, been so for about 6-7 years. I "discovered" U2 in a fairly interesting way: I had a teacher in 9th grade who was a huuuge fan. She had pictures of when she actually met Bono and Edge in a London air port hanging on her bulletin board. Anyway, one day I was standing by her desk to ask a question after class ended, and I noticed under her desk, taped to her drawer where only she or something stand close could see it: a picture of Bono. (I found out later that during boring class moments she would lean back and stare at it. lol, she's a cool lady) I asked her who it was, and she was so surprised I didn't know, she told me about the greatest band on earth, U2. She took right out of her purse Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby for me to borrow. So, I went home, listened to Joshua Tree and it was love at first listen. Achtung pretty much sealed the deal. I think that weekend I went out and grabbed those two albums along with October and Pop.
Unfortunately, I have never been to a concert, so I live vicariously through everyone else's experiences. I actually had the chance to go to the Philly one with surprise guest Bruce Springsteen, but due to a cell phone debacle, I got the voice mail late and thus, could not go. >< I'm working on it though, I have a friend who is determined to get me there, lol.
Achtung and ATYCLB are my favorite albums...can't possibly have a favorite song, I decided long ago it's impossible. As far as videos, I am partial to Electrical Storm, due to the fact that Larry is the most beautiful man on the face of the planet XD
aaaand...that's me! ^^ I really like this community so far, you guys rock!
