I don’t remember if it was when I moved to Memphis or right before the U2 360 Tour that I changed my social media name to Memphis Mullen. I do remember that it was my friend Jenny who gave me that name. I changed my email and twitter name to Memphis Mullen, as well as my blog and youtube channel. The Memphis was because I lived in Memphis and also represented Elvis, and the Mullen was for Larry Mullen. So there I was Memphis Mullen. I started posting my new U2 blog ‘On the Road with U2’, written by Memphis Mullen. On the U2 360 tour in 2011, I wore the same thing to every concert so I was easily recognizable – straw cowboy hat and black ‘Larry Mullen Band’ tee. (I had 3 of the same tee shirts that I rotated over the 16 shows.) I even made ‘Memphis Mullen’ shirts for non-show days – driving days. I would meet other fans who would call me Memphis Mullen, or just Memphis. Shortly after the end of the U2 360 Tour, I moved back to Maryland. I thought I could not be Memphis Mullen any longer since I didn’t live in Memphis. I thought about changing my name to Maryland Mullen, but in the end I went with Deenas Days to match my other blog and other youtube channel. But to be honest, I do miss Memphis Mullen.
This blog post is part of my A to Z April Challenge about ‘My U2′ – what I love about U2 from A to Z. Thanks for stopping by. I am also blogging the A to Z Challenge on my other blog Deena’s Days about ‘My Music’ – music I love from A to Z.
