I've been a U2 fan for 25 years. I got into the band in '84, saw them for the first time in '87, began taping shows in '92. travelled to Japan to see them in '93, raced back from my Dad's wedding to see a show the same night in '97, and since 2001 have only seen 4 shows. I have four kids now, so I don't travel to shows anymore, but the memories of my glory days are very special to me. Road trips all across the eastern U.S., partying with U2 fans, late nights, loud music and freedom. Happy times.
