One Life No Regrets

I try to live my life pursuing my passion and by the motto, “It’s better to regret something you have done than to regret something you haven’t done.” Especially since it’s all about the journey, not the destination. Along my travels this past summer on the U2 360 tour, I met a guy who was…

U2 360 SEATTLE 6.4.11

DAY 22 – JUNE 4 – U2 360 #3 – Qwest Field SEATTLE The U2 360 show in Seattle was better than the previous two shows I had been to in Denver and Salt Lake City. Even though it was the same set list, the audience was much more into it, the band was having…

One Month After U2 360

One month ago tonight my musical journey on the U2 360 tour came to an end, and I finally found what I was looking for. After driving over 18,000 miles through 31 states to attend all 16 U2 shows in the US wearing my ‘Larry Mullen Band’ shirt to each one, Larry hugged me on…

I liked the book better. In Killing Bono, Neil McCormick…

U2360USA Days 19 & 20 – Portland to Seattle

My stay at the Hotel Vintage Plaza in Portland got even better and better. I literally made my upgraded luxurious suite our haven for 36 hours, only going outside to walk the dogs to the park – but I got a good feel for this liberal, dog-friendly city. It was nice just to do nothing…

On the Road with U2 – finally!

Tomorrow I leave for the U2 360 tour, a journey that I have been planning for over a year. I am so excited! For 2 ½ months I will be driving with my 2 dogs, Elvis and Cilla, across America to all 16 US shows. Along the way, meeting great people and visiting great places…
