always a time of wonder for me... and as U2's 'October' is played on the radio, a bit haunting the chord progressions on the piano ... I fall into a memory sink hole...

I was actually just looking up my hit and miss love of U2 (thanks MickeyMatt, btw...) - in the fall of 1984 I visited Sarasota with Bill, and he got me tickets for a U2 show in Tampa for May 85; I ended up home for the holidays and never made it back to New College to chill with Bill.

There was the 1986-87 world wide missing U2 tour - June at the Cow Palace, San Fran - I don't get to Monterey until September 86.

We are both in Texas in April of 87, maybe, but I go to Upstate, they go to Germany; I go to Germany, they go to Syracuse ... ah, the sweet sweet expectation.

Guess I did see them play at the Kodak in 03, so I should stop my bitching ... oh - wait - after pissing and moaning and watching too much TV on a Saturday evening (wow - shocking activity and something new for scott) I got off my ass and took a leap ... to see if the truth was there ... oh so close, just in Raleigh...

the band... oh yeah, me at U2

It sucked that I couldn't plan a rally of troops to adventure en mass, but I'm so fucking happy I went to the show ... wow.

Edit- just looked at pics - seems I left Hobbit House no earlier than 9:05pm, got into the show - after parking and a little walk and getting a ticket - at 9:49. holy shit... wow.
