I was listening to a lot of Jackson Browne and Simon and Garfunkel at the time I met them.

Oasis, and Red Hot Chili Peppers before that.

I still really enjoy those two bands, but I think I got the good out of those two bands and moved on to U2 as being my favorite, and it's been a joy to get into them & discover such an amazing discography like theirs.

I too am old enough to say the Police.  Once I connected with U2, there has never really been another.

Iíve never connected with any other band the way I connect with U2. But before them my favorite bands were probably the Police and Heart.

Itís interesting that many mentioned The Police.

At the last concert of the Conspiracy of Hope tour, The Police famously passed the torch to U2 during the last song.

U2 has never been my favorite band, but they were pretty close in the late 80's.

Nowadays, they are probably in the 11-15 range if I had to rank my favorites.

I was a massive Smashing Pumpkins fan. Actually, the Pumpkins kind of got me into U2.

There is no way I'd be posting on a fan forum for my 11th or 15th favorite band.

So I guess you read and post on all your top 10 bands fan forums as well? You've got 200 post on a fan forum for a band that you only rank around 12th in your favorite list?

Bruce Springsteen is a very close second. Can not believe he hasn't been mentioned yet.
