Spent my early teenage years listening to Boy, October, War etc..finally got to see my first live show on 13 June 1987 at Wembley as an 18 year old. 2 more shows later and I didn't think they could get any better so I sort of fell out of love for a while. Fast forward to April 2004 whilst on a trip to NYC accompanied by a copy of ATYCLB which I played over and over as I explored the city...I fell in love with their music again...30 years after that first show and I'm still feeling the love!
