"I truly have no favorite song, but Streets is the best song live by any band ever. "
I'm a long time fan; married to a fellow U2 fan and we have three wonderful children. (All have been to shows :) I'm a teacher and soccer coach. U2 have been a major part of my life in all areas of my life, from faith to family to politics and beyond. I first heard U2 as a young teenager in 1982, attended my first U2 show the following year in Los Angeles for the War tour. I've been to each tour that followed except Lovetown. One last fun fact; I was fortunate enough to be included in the U2 - ZooTv Video Confessional (From ZooTv Bonus DVD).
"As a teenager, Bowie was our Elvis. They shared the same birthday and they both took music somewhere no one thought it could go. It was his otherworldliness that took us all away. A sense that we are not just earth bound creatures..."
- Bono, 2016, after David Bowie's death
