I feel like everyone has met the band except me

it seems like 50+% of the people who post here have met at least one of the members of U2. When's my turn? I'm not asking for much.

Don't worry, I haven't either. But I have met 5 members of another favorite rock group, ASIA.

I haven't met them, either. It would be nice, but is not a goal or something I have much desire to do, and I have never made any effort to meet them. I have met so many famous people through my work over the years that unfortunately I am very jaded by it and turned off by the scene of how people respond to famous people. Still, I think U2 might be the one experience where I wouldn't be disappointed--I've just heard too many good things!

I have never met them either...... I dunno, I have mixed feelings about the whole thing. I would like to meet them more by chance, not by stalking. Sorry, but it seems too many people now are taking advantage of their goodwill towards their fans. Meeting U2 is a privelage, not a right, and it doesn't matter how many times you say you are not a stalker, it doesn't make it any less true.
Meeting the band while on tour is cool, because that's when it's expected by them, but hanging around their haunts in their hometown and at the studio day in and day out, is plain old invasion of privacy. It just seems wrong, and no I am not jealous.
I'll probably never meet the band and that's ok. I like the mystery and hell, it's all about the music anyway. What's the point if I can't have a *real* conversation with them. Talk about what made me like them in the first place--> the music. It seems the music has been forgotten in all this frenzy.
Autographs mean nothing to me.

Anyway... didn't mean to go on, and I am not trying to disrespect those that have met them lately, it's just my personal feelings.

Maim me, tame me, you can never change me
Love me, like me, come ahead and fight me
Please me, tease me, go ahead and leave me..."
