U2

Achtung Y’all!

Achtung Baby was released in 1991. I had to listen to it a few times before I fell in love with it, which I did. It had a completely different sound from any of U2’s previous albums, but the lyrics were amazing. And for me, music is all about lyrics and drums. Who’s Gonna Ride Your [continue reading]

My passion for U2 started 24 years ago

I have been an avid U2 fan for 24 years. Some say obsessed, but I like to say passionate. I have seen U2 59 times in concert and met each member at least once.

the day that wasn’t

Today was a blur. I sat at my desk at my laptop at 9am and didn’t get up until 5pm. For 8 hours straight, I was organizing my roadtrip for the u2 tour this summer. Then I came back to tweak my plan for another 2 hours. I had already planned a roadtrip to include 9 shows, but I thought why [continue reading]
