sleep, go to school, work sometimes. mostly sleep.
Since I was 13! I heard Mysterious Ways on some radio station and it invaded my brain and would not let go.
Okay, this puts me in the minority but ahhh the Pop era was so great. I know they went off the deep end, and what a beautiful place it was. To be less original, Bono is my favorite member. The man is so ridiculously brilliant. K bye everyone.

~ name: Niki
~ age: 25
~ where you're from: Connecticut, USA
~ what you do: Grad student (library and information science)
~ how long you've been a U2 fan: Since I was 16, though I liked their songs whenever I heard them long before that (my mom's been a fan since the 80's, but I never knew those awesome songs she was listening to were by U2 until about 1999/2000 or so).
~ your U2 preferences (favourite era, band member etc): I'm not going to pick out a favorite band member, but my favorite album is Achtung Baby and I think I like U2's 90's sounds best. But sometimes I go through periods when I prefer their 80's sounds or their music from 2000-present--one of the reasons U2's my very favorite band instead of just one of my favorites is because of all the different sounds they have. :)

~ how long you've been a U2 fan: Since 2001ish
~ your U2 preferences (favourite era, band member etc): Boy era is my favourite band wise, I'm not sure why, I guess I just like the punk look or something. Band member would be Bono. Favourite album is ATYCLB though, it's the album with the most songs that just get into my head and do something I guess.

OK then... I'm Annie, 25, from Poole on the south coast of England. I've been a fan since 1999 and I enjoy all of U2's music to varying degrees, although the '90s have a special place in my heart - they were really at their peak during the ZooTV era (image, vocals, songwriting, everything was perfect). My favourite albums are Achtung Baby and How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb. And if it wasn't obvious... my favourite U2 member is MacPhisto, I love him more than anything in the world!
