How long have you been a fan??

So how longs it been? Me, since the late 80s I think around 87-88. My highschool yearbook pic even had a U2 quote

This belongs on EYKIW since it's U2 related.

My cousin introduced me formally to U2 when Achtung Baby came out, in 1991. I was going on 13 then. That ended up being the first U2 CD I bought myself.

somewhere between seeing the video for 'sunday bloody sunday' in 1983 and hearing 'bad' on my brother's copy of UF in 1984. i was pretty young, but not too young to recognize truly great music.

Hmmmm, I think you know this answer.

1983 War. At least I finally got the year right.

21 years and Oh, your welcome for giving you an obsession that would last a lifetime.

Since I first heard 'em in 1983. Sunday Bloody Sunday and New Year's Day won me over quick.

My next-door neighbor lent me Rattle and Hum in '92. Then a French exchange student turned me on to War in '93. I was 14, and I became bait to this day.

I guess Joshua Tree era, around 87, maybe 88. I would have been about 12/13, I became a oretty big fan, but it wasn't until I was about 16/17, about 1992 when I became a ridiculously big fan.

I am one of those fans who loves U2's whole catalogue and prettu much all of their 'eras' but I would be lying if I didn't say I lean HEAVILY towards the Zoo era (91-93)
