favorite tour: ZOO TV
"I had never seen anything like it at the time – a multimedia assault on the senses which has influenced the way many subsequent bands and artists stage their shows"
favorite show: 2001-07-18 - Paris
"I promised myself that one day I would be right at the front by the stage at a U2 show and it happened in Paris on the Elevation Tour. We were lucky that our hotel was almost next door to the venue so we took our places early in the morning and queued for twelve hours in the rain. Being that close to the band was a surreal experience – it was a night I will never forget"
favorite album: Achtung Baby
"Songs and lyrics so full of depth and meaning that I can still discover something new whenever I listen to Achtung Baby and I do listen to it *all* the time"
I have been fanatical about U2 for 37 years, going back to 1981 when I taped a live ‘Rockpalast’ recording and was instantly hooked. If I’d told my teenage self that I’d still be as crazy about the band and their music all these years later, I probably wouldn’t have believed her! When my friends and family see or hear anything U2 related, I am the first person who pops into their heads - I probably drive everyone nuts!
