The last time I was rehearsing with my half-assed "band" (a work thing, I don't really have a band), the bass player started noodling around with something that sounded really familiar.

It was New Religion! Ha. Then he and the drummer started talking about JT's awesome 80s bass riffs. I had no idea he liked them.

DD was MY before U2. I knew all the debut album singles, but I really fell hard when "Rio" came out. I can't tell you how many times I used to listen to 'Hold Back The Rain' and 'New Religion'.

And don't even get me started on the 'Save A Prayer' video.
count me in with the old people group.. I have been a fan since 1982 when I was in high school. I know that is old! Played the hell out of Rio. But it was the vinyl that I played over and over..

John Taylor was one if not my main crush when I was in elementary school in the early 80s. He is still hot.

I am now watching the videos from last night, they are a bit trippy. Not sure about that Leopard song and the floating masks that were part of the video from last night.

yes! JT has always been my big fan girl crush since day one.. and he sure is still hot! So a while back when he responded to my tweet I turned into a teenager and swooned/squealled, the works..

I remember everyone having crushes on various boys in school and writing "I love (insert name here) and I would always write "I love John Taylor" hahaha

16. Tiger Beat. Bop! My favorite was Star Hits, which had all sorts of great stuff in it, like U2, REM and other "cool" stuff. I think it was the US version of Smash Hits. I was so sad when it went away.

I was a Simon girl, after a brief stint as a Roger girl.

From everything I've read/seen clips of last night's show, I'm not sure I want to watch it. The Lynch visuals and overlays just sound irritating.

^the overlays were annoying..but the other two cams would of made me sick.. One was a fishbowl lens cam the other was called funhouse cam.. So the David Lynch cam was the only other option.

btw having Gerard Way dueting on Planet Earth annoyed me cuz I can't stand him as a singer and his band...

I think the only bit I really want to see is Beth Ditto singing with them on Notorious.

The show last night was fantastic! It rained pretty miserably, so we had to queue for about two hours in the rain. Thankfully they let us bring umbrellas inside.

Highlights for me were The Man Who Stole a Leopard, and A View to a Kill. Great stuff. Girl Panic was also really great! kelis came out twice to sing and I also enjoyed Beth Ditto dirtying w Simon. Mick Ronson wore white jazz shoes ala 1982! he played guitar on a few songs.

Wish they had play Runway runaway from the new album, but oh well. We got Careless Memories!!!

The rhythm section was in fine form last night! Going to Jimmy Kimmell tonight for the outdoor concert. Let's hope it stays dry!!!
