Hey Everybody...
« on: February 18, 2009, 08:42:40 PM »
 I'm going to be using, ITM, but my name is Ian.

 In the early eighties there was a video show called, "Toronto Rocks," hosted by John Majors,(or maybe it was Major?) The first time I saw "Two Hearts Beat As One," I was hooked. There's just something about acrobats in red leotard cartwheeling through Paris that always gets me.

 My most memorable moment as a fan occurred at The Palace Of Auburn Hills in Michigan in late March of '92 or '93. I was in the 23rd row, just close enough to smell but not taste the pizzas the band ordered for the first twenty rows. It was my first U2 concert, and for me the jump from The Joshua Tree to Achtung Baby took a little getting used to. "The Fly," which is now one of my favourite tracks was a bit of a shock as I remember, but the album was unmistakably great.

 When "Zoo Station," kicked in, Bono a silhouette, DANCING, against giant television screens...It was there that I "got" Achtung Baby. 

 And when he blew the roof off of the Palace transitioning from "Running..." into "Hallelujah," it was as sacred a single moment to me as were all the stories I had heard from those that had been to a U2 concert before, who would say that going to a U2 concert was what church could be like.

 Looking forward to participating on the boards and to March 3rd and NLOTH!

 Best,

 ITM
