Its just as same if nobody knew who Bono was
I'm from South Florida, 99% of the population of youth here is glued to the MTV/hip-hip/rap/R&B craze. Most people know who Bono is, but believe it or not I've also got that statement before. Not knowing who Bono is! Almost as bad as (if not worse, considering Bono is still alive and an activist) than not knowing who John Lennon is.

Most of my friends are just like 'what?' because they're part of the typical teenaged population listening to the recent hits. The others have heard of U2 and like a few of their songs, but that's it, and they have no idea who the hell David Evans is, certainly not Larry Mullen Jr, though they may have heard of Bono. My best friend and I, however, are awesome because we get together and watch Rattle & Hum when my parents don't complain about it.

It pains me that people don't know who John Lennon is. I have a necklace with a picture of him on it... one day I wore it to school and this dumb girl came up to me, looked at my necklace, and said, "I like Harry Potter, too!" and walked away before I could correct her.

WTF

Judging by the picture of him, I could see the resemblance (he had his hippie glasses on, not the sharpest photo of him) but uh...really?

Hi everyone. My name is R. Clayton n i'm from East Timor. I think i'm a bit older than most of you. After a few months later i won't be a teenager anymore.

Not too many of my friends are U2 fans. Well most of them like their concerts but not the band or their music as a whole, probably because most of them don't like Bono. But everyone seems to love Adam Clayton, which is good thing for me.

So and

what counts as not getting a show? Lets ignore getting a flight, but how far would the nearest show be to drive?

I missed Tampa last year because I had to take the SAT, I seriously considered driving 4.5 hours, rescheduling my SAT to a Tampa location, and going to the show. I just simply didnt have the money.

This year though, they're an hour away in Miami. Cant miss it!

I live in Australia, so we have dirt and small towns for many miles until we reach the nearest city.

If the show doesnt come to you, money permitting, go to it. That's my philosophy. That's why I went to the 25th annual Rock n Roll Hall of Fame Benefit Concert at MSG in NYC (U2 was a performing act). One of the greatest concerts ever.

I believe in retrospective analysis through direct "stupid is as stupid does" for most youngsters, and Justin Bieber's mother should go to court just for that.

So - question - does anyone else have the misery of being an isolated U2 fan? Outside of Interference (and I'm relatively new here) I do not know any U2 fans my age.
