Ive been an obsessed U2 fan since 1983, and became a collector in 1987 after the JT was released. By 1993 I had a massive U2 collection. Every single and album on every format possible from every country and every color vinyl possible, about 10-15 items of these were signed by either the whole band or incividuals depending who I had met at the time. I had over 500 magazines and books, pieces of the berlin wall, an inflatable Trabant, photographs, gold discs, silver discs, many band awards, lithographs, live radio shows and much, much more.

Mmm...sounds like a collection that would leave mine in the dust, but if you have no photographic proof, then it never happened.  ;)

Seriously, though, that's rough (though mindbogglingly idiotic of you, if I may be so bold) and you have my (partial) sympathies.  I'd have killed the beeotch, personally...

I just have the Joshua Tree, Achtung Baby, Zooropa, Pop, The Unforgettable Fire, All That You Can't Leave Behind, Atomic Bomb, U218 Singles, and the Best of 1980-1990

The next additions to my collection will probably be the "One" single...and of course, No line on the horizon...  ;)
