Growing up the one band I heard most was U2. Moms car. Dads car. In the house. Everywhere. I remember listening to my dads U2 records being super careful not to scratch them. U2 was seriously like a part of my family. They will always be a favorite of mine and the beginning of my interest in music. I still think The Edge is a highly underrated and creative guitar player. I prefer the earlier music they made, but I will still get everything they release. It was more raw and honest and I don’t know, it just made me feel a certain way. Two summers ago I got to see them in concert because my uncle broke up with his girlfriend a few days before the show and he knew I would really like to see them. It was at a outdoor stadium at the U of M and it was a night I will never forget. We had a massive thunderstorm and rain was just pouring down, but they marched on and played for 2.5 hours. It seemed to bring the crowd and band together somehow. No one left and even though we were all soaked to the bone, people were having a lot of fun. This is a picture of the giant stage thing they had that night. Also this is one of my favorite songs by them.
