Shame on me to be a newbie, but I met them last week :)

O my God, I can't believe I just found this website. I know, shame on me! Shame on me! I have to thank waynetravis for hookin me up. And I can't believe either how much I've missed during these years I've been a fan of U2. This site is amazing.....

Well, I met waynetravis when he came up to the Abbey Road studio last week. Me and some 15 fans were there, it was probably our third day together coming to the studio, waiting outside, screaming, waving, hollering, and getting autographs from the band members as they came out of the studio. Six hours of waiting totally paid off!!

And you probably wouldn't believe this. I'm from Indonesia. I happened to be in London for a course for two weeks since Monday Sept 11. And when I learned that they happened also to be in London at the studio recording stuff, I was freaking out! My heart was racing in anticipation when I came to the studio the first time. Then I saw Adam. And then Bono. And then Edge. And then Larry! I was like, this is the best week ever. And what an amazing coincidence, eh? I came for London and I got London AND U2! I got their autographs on my sweatshirt and my Zoo TV DVD.

I always thought I'd never meet them. They've never played Indonesia, or come to think of it, any Southeast Asian countries.. And voila! last week really happened!!!! And I met other U2 fans as well and they're just the best -- except for the autograph hunter a.k.a the dealers..

I camped outside the Waterstone's bookstore on Thursday night and got in Friday morning at 8. Got my book and got it signed! Edge said "someday we'll come to Indonesia". Bono shook my hand. Larry was full of smile. And Adam remembered me -- probably from the nights of waiting and standing outside the Abbey Road studio.

So there's my story. I will never forget this time of my life. I am probably the luckiest person on earth. At least, last week I was
So, hi to all of you..

By the way, how can I put up pics on my message, pics that are my own in my computer? There's IMG in the vB Code bar, but it seems to be for images already on the Net.......

Yes, they did. And they will play Japan and Australia. Australia is much closer actually, so I might wake up tomorrow and book a flight although I'm pretty sure all tickets must have been sold out

But thanks for the info!

No worries Tony... I am not rushing you, I am just so excited about all the cool new pics that I got a bit carried away.

This page may be of some help to you.

http://forum.interference.com/t153266.html

It helped me figure out how to mange my photobucket account.

One guy last week, was just turning up to see where The Beatles did the Abbey Road album. He had NO IDEA U2 were there.

He was over from Oz and just come off the cuff. Imagine his shock when he realised U2 were there He was a mad U2 fan, who was seeing them when they resumed touring later in the year.

He even helped load the drum kits and guitars out of the vans for them.

He couldn't believe his luck. Wish I had luck like that
