its actually neil diamond that was my first big time band interest. my first concert. bad as it might seem, he can sing. even easy listening haters know that. i learned the very basics of how i listen to music, how to feel music, how a band plays a song live different from studio version, how a live album is arranged, etc. . i lost him after the 80's to move on to other kinda of rock. but in this past decade, i have come to appreciate it more. and have used what i have learned since the 80's, and applied it to his music now. seeing things i didn't know before. like how his mid 80's stuff, was a attempt to stay cool and gain a younger audience. using some beats and snyths in his music. etc. why he wrote certain songs a certain way. but i learned the basics from him. you make a bunch of studio albums, then do a live album. stuff like that.

^ I love Neil Diamond. Don't ever apologise for listening to Neil Diamond -- he's well worth listening to.

Da na na na na na na da na na na

And re the Beatles, I still like their music of course, and still listen to the albums now and then, but nowhere near as much as i used to. Once I got into Floyd, Bowie, and probably more specifically Radiohead, some Beatles music just seemed to me to be pretty unremarkable.

Oasis

Actually, I'm listening to them now, but I rarely do these days. Considering they were my favorite band for well over a decade, that's bad.

I go through periods of discovery and re-discovery. It's not often that a band completely drops out from my rotation. I generally seem to focus on about 5 or 6 bands at a time, and focus on them for about a month.

The Sad Punk nailed it. That's exactly what's happening with my favourite band -- in fact, their new album arrived the day after I bought NLOTH, so for me, that album (and the two EPs they released just weeks before that, and the more side projecty album they released a few months before that) took precedence over the U2 album. Of course I'm going to listen to much anticipated new work from my favourite band. That's what you are doing, isn't it, last unicorn?

As for the often asked "why are you here then?" question -- I'm part of several different band forums. Obviously not all of those bands can be my favourite. I like this forum -- and there's a lot more to it than just U2. And it's not as if I never listen to U2. I just don't listen to them nearly as much as I did when I was a huge fan and they were my favourite band.

On topic, I used to listen to Matchbox Twenty and other bland mainstream-radio-commercial blah before I discovered U2.
