I mean, really? Not in a million years should that have happened. But it did

I know I was in the midst of a lot of people's wishes on this forum and beyond, so I tried to be classy and have fun, say something any of us would want to tell them, get lost in the moment. It's really hard to hear on stage. And I have a WHOLE new respect for how strong Bono's voice is (maybe it was the mic volume) but I was singing as loud as I could while not losing it completely, and Bono sounds a lot louder than me. I wouldn't put it past him having that much stronger vocal power.
What a cool story - congratulations to you and Shawn!

Yep, my wife & I are there tonight for Chicago 4. I'm wearing my Pearl Jam Wrigley Field 2013 shirt for more good setlist karma. Come on boys, Two Hearts & Crystal Ballroom!!! The Fly for good measure.

I've been on this positive kick lately especially with the baby and coming out on the better side of a cancer diagnosis, then with good karma for Chicago's setlists. I've been calling this week my personal Super Bowl. I even wore my Pearl Jam Lightning Bolt T-shirt last night because they always mix up their set lists- more good karma sprinkled on the event. Plus I thought if by any chance this would happen that shirt would look kick ass on stage. I know Edge has been sporting some lightning bolt T's/graphics this tour.
Oh don't worry about it, I wasn't shocked that got a rise and I figured it wasn't a debate particularly worth pursuing (I think my last post in that thread was late at night and rotten drunk!). Sounds like you're having one hell of a good time at the moment.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."
