Things you made because of U2

Have you ever done or bought sthg, or took up an activity being entirely inspired by U2?





For example I took up playing the drums

I had a baby.

Just kidding. I learned guitar cause of Edge. He's my hero and will always be inspired by him. Thank you Edge!

I don't know if this counts, but I can't tell you how many other bands/musicians/writers, etc the guys have led me too. I don't think I would even be a writer without them.

I learnt the guitar because of Edge. And also, I've listened to other artists they've turned me onto.

I'll most likely think of some more later.

I started playing bass because of Adam. Since discovering U2 years ago (my first real musical obsession) I've grown to equally appreciate and in some way emulate many other bassist's approaches, but I still think at the core my playing style is most influenced by his.


Oh, I also once made a little Popmart Adam lego figure.

I learned English because of them, well Ok, I started learning English because I wanted to understand their songs, and learning English changed all my world, I lived in Ireland and UK, and my present job is also influenced by it.

I made a scrap book of my trip to Ireland. I would have never probably gone to Ireland if it wasn't for U2.

I started liking music. Seriously, I hated music before I heard Pride the first time back in 2000 (16 years late to the party, but what the hell ). Before I heard that song I never cared for music. On the radio there was only pop and nothing else with catches that I thought relied too much on the vocals and the chorus. Very little emphasis on the instrumental-parts, they just felt like sounds in the background.

Then I heard Pride with its simple, yet powerful and beautiful riff and I was sold in an instant. I even started caring about the vocals that I hated so much before. The vocals and the lyrics actually felt personal for once. I also started enjoying other bands because of them, I wouldn't have found out about them if it wasn't for U2 (and Guitar Hero ).

Well, The Cure get 50% of the credit for this; but it was because of the two bands that I started writing poetry....

same here. It's just so much easier with hotels and stuff.


And I started playing Guitar and later Bass guitar because of U2. They changed my life drastically with that, they made me appreciate music.

i bought some similar fly shades at the beginning of 1992 and i also bought some similar popmart shades in 1997. the popmart glasses i used at skiing in the alpes when the sight was grey in grey. orange glasses are great on bad weather days.
