Normal

Dilemma.. I started liking them when BD came out, but I became an obsessed, fanatical fan (like I am today ) when I saw them live, in 2001.. so, I voted for 2001.

1980 - The song was "I Will Follow"- And I have ever since - And what a ride it has been.

spring of 2000. A lucky accident it was too, cuz I was already a fan when all the new album hubbub/rumours started to come. What excitement!

1993. R&H was the first album I bought just because I thought the cover looked cool. I didn't get Zooropa until after Pop.

What a great year that was.

The people on this board seem to be so far according to the poll are divided between those who became fans in 1987 and earlier and those who became fans in 1997 and after. Where are the people who became fans from 1988 to 1996. Especially 1992!?! I became a fan in 1987!
