Yep. I thought Sula would get that, though not everyone will. I am a long tenured hater of Pop and lover and defender of Bono's hair, so he did that just to annoy me, but in the most lighthearted of ways, so I'm not mad. Just glad I had a chance to straighten it out before U2 read it and got the wrong idea about me :!!

lol. *phew* that's what I thought! But things being as crazy as they are these days, I start to doubt my own gut feeling.

Hey Stormy...I just wanted to give you some support...for whatever...this is also in response to your DO-YOU-DON'T-YOU-CHAT thingie in PLEBA...I get the sense that you feel out of place/time/whatever with most of the folks who post, and I can empathize with you. Though it doesn't bug me, it is amazing how young and how many new U2 fans there are these days...which is good, but can make you feel out of touch sort of and feeling like you don't have too much in common with the majority of folks who post in, at least, these two forums...PLEBA and ETYKIW..I ramble, but your comments touched me and I sense a kindred spirit in you...and I love the pictures you post!

Wasn't that the point of the joke?

hey *Stormy*
It's AWESOME that you had that experience with STP! I try hard to relate to people who came to U2 as a mega-band (as I did to the Stones or the Who), since I found them when they were still coming up... Your insights into your 90s band (I followed so little of rock'n'roll in the 90s) have expanded your frame of reference -- when music becomes more than music, when it becomes tied up in history, in a kind of real "relationship." When you and an artist grew up together... there IS an emotional tie, to the public person(s) if not the private one.

We also tend to assume that Big Stars are somehow assigned their place in the culture, that they "know" they're making art for Top 40 radio or whatever -- but of course, they don't. When even established artists create something new, they are perhaps MORE exposed than unknowns would be; and when they create something that defies public expectations, they're even braver. They make themselves more vulnerable than most of us will ever feel ... write a poem from your heart, from your messy life, and then stand in front of 20,000 people and recite it, not knowing if they're gonna get it or think you're full of shit...

Man, I think about that when I look at the clip of Miami on the Elevation DVD: that night, they had no idea how they would be received. They were coming off POPmart in the public's eyes (Irving Plaza et al notwithstanding), Bono was prepared to work his ass off to reach those people -- he took nothing for granted. How exposed is that? How scary is that? I have little time for folks who write off performing artists as egotists -- yes, in their way, but only because they are willing to risk their egos entirely everytime they step out onstage.

Sorry, didn't know I had a soapbox under me. But *Stormy* your post was inspiring. Thanks!

I know exactly what you are saying Stormy. It bugs when fans dismiss a bands newer, or different works, and say that they were better before. Specifically with U2, I have said this before, Pop and Zooropa are Excellent albums, if ya don't care for them fine, but they are NOT CRAP. I guess people don;t like change in their music, but change is what keeps a band fresh. Another great example is Pearl Jam who's later work in far superior to there earlier work. Aww man, I probably pissed of someone now but whatever....
