Hello Hello!!


March 20th, 2003

Glad I found this community... @ 03:07 pm

clayboy103177:
I'm currently feelin: awake

hello everyone I guess I should introduce myself and such...
I am a BIG U2 fan...pretty much love all of their stuff
I am the biggest Edge fan hes my #1 Fav guitar player followed by:
#2 Reeves Gabrels (from David Bowie's Band)
#3 David Gilmour (from Pink Floyd)
Heres my most surreal experience with U2 in Concert:
During the last nite at the Elevation show in the L.A. Staples Center, I was fortunate enough to position myself right in front of Edge to pretty much watch him all night (im a struggling guitar player) During PRIDE I was setting up for a camera shot when I noticed that for some reason, Edge was LOOKING DIRECTLY AT ME, I immediately motioned with my hands in some sort of sign language "give me your pick" And he smiled a big smile and as he turned, he kind of pretended to toss the pick at me real quick. Anyone who has the bootleg video of this concert could see this (barely) And no, I didnt get the pick, but at least came out with this story...
Thanks people!

*blink blink*

we must've been like right fucking next to each other. i was on the bar right in front of him that night.
i too am a guitarist, and have studied his hands closely at each of the shows i was at. [btw, if you're in LA... you might've heard of my band? we're EXIT, the all girl U2 cover band. well, we're not really a cover band anymore, we're moving on to originals.]

welcome to the community! :-)

yep, on the first night (11/12)!

our singer's name is nikki. hehe, yeah, a long time! the things i've done for that band.....

hmm.. i do have a vague memory of it, but to be honest i'm not sure - there were so many people who came up to me! help me out tho.. where exactly were you standing during the show? on the bar? were you more to bono's side, or more near the side of the heart? do you remember standing next to three girls - me being the one in the middle?

i've been on lj for two years now, actually!

ya nikki that was her name. I just remember you talking with someone else and i just passed by real quick and said that. But my friend and i were talking to nikki a lot in line. I had long jet black hair that was probably tied back and my friend also had/s long jet black hair (she looks like sally from nitemare b4 xmas) we were probably the most "gothic" looking people there..mind if i add you to my friends list?

Hi Roland, welcome. My friend Ron (ooyayootay) and I were 49th & 50th in line for LA 3. If you want any audio boots from those shows let me know. I'm a big Bowie fan as well. Some of us also are Coldplay devotees as you might have noticed.
