First heard of U2 from my dad (huge fan since Boy) but it was when Vertigo came out when I was a little kid. I remember just loving the song as a child, and then it was Beautiful Day and so on and so forth.
Lover of U2; including you, too.
"I'm not stupid, I'm aware of the futility of rock 'n roll music, but I'm also aware of its power. We're only coming to terms with our trade. We've yet to become craftsmen. Well, maybe we should never become craftsmen. It's great fun being in this band."
- Bono, 1984
