"My all time favorite song. Isolation, separation, desolation. Bono spoke to me at a certain point I’m my life, where those words hit home. Not that I was ever alone or in desperate situation, but isolated enough where it hit home."
Hello from the middle of nowhere. I’ve been a “hardcore” U2 fan since 1989. Prior to that I was familiar with the band as I vividly recall the videos for New Years Day, Sunday Bloody Sunday and Pride. The first album I bought was the Joshua Tree, but it took me a couple of years to explore the band further and immerse myself into their music. I met Bono after a Popmart show in Chicago.
