"Live it's the U2 song that above all others takes me somewhere utterly unique and wonderful. Others come close but that's the one. Acrobat is my favourite recorded U2 track, closely followed by One and Mercy...."
I'm a forty-something NHS nurse born and bred in Mansfield (thats Robin Hood country). Music is incredibly important to me and I've been listening to every conceivable kind for as long I can remember. I've been heavily into U2 since the War album in '83 and love seeing them live. My other favourite bands are Radiohead and The Flaming Lips, although I like a lot of other artists too and have a massive music collection! As well as listening to and buying music I also collect live recordings and bootlegs (obsessively) and see myself as a bit of an audiophile. When not working I enjoy walking, good food and reading.
"Achtung Baby is probably the most complete record. Joshua Tree is nostalgic, it seems like a different person and a different band."
- Adam Clayton, 2001
did you know
The name Achtung Baby was chosen so that their new album could not be taken seriously because on their last album Rattle and Hum, they were critically attacked. Achtung means attention is German: "Attention, Baby," is the literal translation.
