My parents are indifferent and they think I'm completely insane....which I am
My sis likes them, but she' s nowhere near the fan that I am. She is more into bands like Nirvana and Hole. One of her friends is a really big U2 fan and a little of it rubbed of onto her. I think she is more of a fan than she likes to admit

my favorite smilies are and

just casual appreciation

My mom and I both started listening in the early 80's...she likes them but not the way I do

My Dad thought thought they were "a bunch of English sissy's" matter how many times I told him they were Irish

My husband and kids tolerate them because of me

The rest of my family thinks Beautiful Day was their first hit song and thinks this is a new band I discovered

I like and

they are musiclovers too

None of them feel the way I do, but they certainly appreciate U2's talent and their place in the scheme of things.
My dad has always known which bands we love and will tell me he saw "Bone-o" on the news. I keep them updated on the important stuff( and they deserve full credit for listening...with interest).
Mum and dad gave me a ticket to see Emmylou Harris for my 40th Birthday and and IOU ticket fior my 41st, to the next Australian U2 concert. They know they matter to me.
My hub has on occassion played U2 songs in his band ( he's more into blues) and my 17 year old LOVES Achtung Baby( hu' hmmm can I have my CD back, please?)
U2 are living legends in my family and have their respect and admiration.

Favourite smilie? just one?


just one? OK........

My wife and kids all like U2 - but not to the same level I do.

My son, who just turned 8, can frequently be heard saying "Let me guess - you're listening to U2 again." Yet he will rock out to some songs (like Elevation).

My daughter (2) loves to dance to U2 in concert.

Big Grin

My sister is a casual fan. I send her vids, bootlegs and cds. I might have sent her too much though. Enough for a casual fan to get sick of them. She avoids asking me questions about U2, for fear of me going on and on about them. When I sent her a non-U2 video, I just HAD to insert MW on Zoo TV for to see. I never got a response.

My favorite smiley? Can't decide. Maybe

My dad and sister got me into U2..

My mom is not really a rock music fan.. She sticks to Celine Dion-type nonsense.

My family likes them, but not as much as me. They like them enough to be interested in new songs, interview blurps, remixes, etc. that I share with them. That's all I ask for- the opportunity to share new tidbits of U2 information and music with the casual fan!

My hubby likes them, but rolls his eyes at my excessive love for them and their music. Bono fascinates me, and he jokes that I like Bono more than him.

When someone asked my hubby who I could be if I could be anyone, he said jokingly, "Bono's Wife!"

I thought this was a "merged" or "moved" thread or something.

My mom like Celine Dion and Enya. Enough said.
My dad has a casual appreciation for the band, nothing big. He couldn't name any songs. He bought JT in 1987 on vinyl and never listened to it. He like Coldplay better. He's a huge Beatles fan, Pink Floyd, etc. My dad is basically me in male form.

My bro...started off as a gino dance music loser. I hated that stage. Then, something wonderful happened and he made himself a U2 cd and now LOVES them. Not like I do, but to the point where he CAN recogmize them on the radio. He made me burn him a copy of The BEst Of (the old and new ones). I just lent him Pop. Bono is his hero. He listens to ES EVERYDAY...he told me he'll never buy the cds tho cause he can just steal them from me Grrr.....he's not quite into the whole B-sides thing yet, so I'll always have my B-sides.
..and he keeps trying to analyze the meaning of ES...I swear, he's driving me mad!

And my sis...she's 12. The happiest day of my life is when she came in and said, 'Can you play The Sweetest Thing again? And then Elevation?' *tears of joy*
She's my little protege. She can name all the band members.
