I have talked about U2 a lot before on my blog, they have been an almost constant in my life since I first heard Elevation in the back of my dads car while on holiday in 2001, I of course fell in ‘love’ with Bono and his voice and as it turns out his large nose too haha.
I have had a lot of criticism with my loving of this band, everyone I have known has talked to me in disgust about them and how snobby they are, telling us to donate when they sit in mansions.. and while I agree, these people often don’t see the side of them that shows how much they do for people.
I managed to meet many friends through the bands many fan websites back when the internet was more than just social media and some big money making scheme, I did manage to meet one of these wonderful people and got to see the band live together back in 2005 which I talk about here
Some girls had popstars, I had a bunch of rock stars with large egos, and I honestly don’t regret one bit learning and loving this band, who have kept me sane during bad times and helped me connect with thousands of people across the globe.
until next time
