I just went through my wire mail for the first time in ages. I saw nothing from Mod, and I found a goodbye letter from J. I guess that list is changing and shifting people too, like this forum. More and more people disappear or drift away or stop posting while new ones appear until I hardly recognize the place.

I was on Wire before running across Interference. This community is about a billion times better. Wire seemed like one big bitch-fest.

I was on there for a day, then I switched it to no-mail.

Wire really was never the same after it went down last summer and came back as yahoogroups. It's just no fun anymore. I cancelled it ages ago. It was stupid and clogging up my box. The Laz/J battles were interesting in their day.

Wire was the first U2 mailing list I ever joined and was on it for several years...but it turned into a Bon Jovi bashing ...I remember Modsavage and J. I really never understood what J was about....

It did change when it went to Yahoo...

I did learn how to deal with American bashing there though

Mod is the best...I think he's still on Wire though I met him through U2LA . He's such a nice guy, I owe him big time, he's given me pretty much all my bootlegs *kisses feet*.

I'll pass on the link to this thread when I see him online, he'd get a kick outta of it.

I had always heard of Wire, but never knew what it was - anyone want to take a minute and explain what it was/is to me?

thanks

Mod is still on Wire and also on u2-list. List is not as mean as Wire.

As far as J is concerned, I think he loves U2, but he hates POP. I think it is a simple as that.

I traded with someone recently and was given "Modsavage's U2 Live B-Sides CD" and "Modsavage's Enhanced Superbowl Halftime" on CD.

I haven't viewed or listened to the Superbowl one, but the Live B-Sides totally rocks! Mostly live songs from Popmart, a few Elevation.

Anyhow, I was wondering who Modsavage was and then came across this thread!

....were being thrown out of the studio, we spent 10 minutes writing this next song, 10 minutes recording it, 10 minutes mixing it, 10 minutes playing it back and thats nothing to do with why its called 40. Bono - 4/29/87, Chicago, IL

WIRE is one of the oldest internet mailing lists for U2 fans. it's now run through Yahoo Groups- here's a link if you want to join. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/wire-u2/

however, be forewarned that interference is, imho, a much better community!

I never particapted in Wire and don't know Modsavage, but he and his good works were mentioned in an AustralianU2 email yesterday and it made me think he must be a kind person. Coincidence, nice one
