A giant HTDAAB display that my brother (who was a manager at Tower before they closed down) gave to me. It takes up a whole wall in my room.

(I also have a big Joshua Tree store display too, but it's too big to put out anywhere in my small house)

Just my plain old, normal All That You Can't Leave Behind CD. It's the album that really got me into U2 and music in general, and my 2nd CD ever bought (How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb being the first)

Maybe my pic of Bono with Maddy last September. Or perhaps her getting pulled up onstage in Hawaii with the whole U2 world watching/listening. And that includes a certain someone (Daryl) who let her stand where she did for that show, which led to her stage appearance. His kindness still brings tears to my eyes

My wristbands from inside the Elipse

I know this may sound kind of absurd, but it's not any kind of physical thing that I own, but their music in general that is my most prized possesion.

I would have to say there are about three things that I am really glad I have, in no certain order.

1. My 12-inch single copy of "The Fly" that I purchased in Stratford-On-Avon when I was visiting some friends of mine in England. It had just been released as the first single off of AB and I bought it about a month before the album was released. Had to make sure I got the record back to the States without breaking it somehow.

2. My near-mint copy of "A Celebration" single I found online. I don't care what Bono and the boys say, it is a great song with a CLASSIC early U2 vibe. One of my all-time favorites.

3. My VHS copy of Under a Blood Red Sky. I got it back in 84 or 85 and seemed to watch it endlessly. I felt sorry for my friends who would come over to hang out with me, because invariably I would say, "Hey, let's watch my U2 concert video!" I probably drove them crazy because of that. I still watch it every now and then, and to this day it never fails to get my blood going.

I got the rattle and hum movie book from a friend, that meant a lot to me... he got that book for his 18th birthday, and gave it to me for mine and for my graduation...

and it's in a surprisingly good condition!

Probably my Elevation T-shirt that I got at the Phoenix show in 2001. A memento of my first ever U2 concert, and even more special since they skipped Australia on that tour.

I was at this concert and Diamond kept stepping on me in the heart (ya rat bast*rd! ).

People thought it was planned, but I can assure you, it was not! Poor Diamond was tackled hard before by security before he got on stage to lift Bono.

As for my favorite U2 item... hmm... This is tough because as a collector, I have so many things that mean a lot to me. However, I think my favorite is a very personal item - a photo of the Edge and me by Edge's hotel after a Chicago PopMart concert. Edge aqlso signed the "Pop" CD booklet for me (drawing glasses over his face). These two are probably my most favorite U2 items. But I do have quite a few other items I really enjoy having.

It was a ill advised move that was done impulsively.

Immediately after leaping onto the catwalk before I even landed, I had my regrets-like "I shouldn't be doing this" and "what have you got myself into"?

My heart was pounding, and I knew only one fellow in the arena could save me.

I didn't realize how how quickly things would spiral out of control in an adversarial way.

Incredibly Bono took over a situation that resembled a train wreck and steered the situation into one of jubilation, triumph and joy.

In his presence he was quick witted and friendly, mastering this precarious situation into something memorable.

His clothes were very supple and soft (deer skin leather) and he was extriodinarily light.

I don't know if it was my adrenaline, extra supernatural help-so that I wouldn't drop him, but his body weight seemed very light, like I had kid in my arms.

One of the last things he spoke to me in all earnesty was a line from the song Walk On,(that was being performed) and he looked at me intently and said:
""Be safe tonight"

What I took from the whole event years later is a lesson in charity.

Wherever you find somebody that needs a hand up, emotionally, financially or that is in a bad way- you help them the best way you can-in that moment.

Charity, that is the most important work we can do on earth, whether it's your time that you give, your talent that you give, or your compassion that you give-Charity is the most important gift God gave all of us to use.
