OMG, it's been more than 25 years…
« on: May 30, 2018, 05:01:58 PM »
…of loving this band. Sheesh. That's a significant portion of my life.

Looking forward to E&I next month. This is maybe my 10th or 11th concert? ZooTV OB did me in…

30 years for me! 73.17% of my life. Lol.

ZooTV OB is probably my answer, however technically incorrect it may be, to the question "what is your favorite album?" I remember waiting for it to begin, fingers poised to hit play/record on the tape deck. Then I spent the next two hours transported to Dublin. So glad I have a clean digital recording today.

Which show (city) are you going to see?

Oh, duh. DC of course. Also I realize I answered your other thread too. I'm actually not the only person on the forum, believe it or not. I'm new but probably have the highest average post count right now, a fact that I am NOT PROUD OF.

I've been a fan for 21 years now. Heck, I've been on this forum for a large percentage of that time!(2008)  21/39=54 percent of my life has been spent in avid u2 fanhood. That doesn't even count singing along with my Mom's JT tape, using a hairbrush!

Going to see both DC shows. Seated tickets on the first night, GA the second night.

I was actually a member of "Wire" the e-mail discussion list that was originally hosted out of Univ. of Kentucky, I think. Back when only limited numbers of people could be on "reflector" as opposed to "digest." Good times.

31 years.  I just turned 46 so that is a huge chunk of my life!  I tried to describe "life before kids" to my 15 year old son and I could remember very little, lol.  But I told him that there was one constant, and that was the band U2.  I have had nothing nearly as long as I've had my love for this band.

I've been a fan for 35 years.  One of the longest significant commitments of my life.

What family member likes what song? Just curious.

I have "only" been a fan for 13 years.

But what percentage of your life is that? I am sure you are younger than me.

Yes, I'm younger than you. I'm 28 years old.. So a little under half of my life I've been a U2 fan.

About 22/23 years for me. 31 years old. 74 percent of my life. Did I do the math right?
