#U2 - #JoshuaTreeTour - #LosAngeles - 18 Nov 1987
It is not often that I wonder how different my life would have been if. But this tour has to make me wonder. If I hadn't been so violently kicked out of the Cow Palace by Mr. Graham himself would the Cure be my favorite band? Little things like that. How many times have I been fired since then? All similar experiences. 27...maybe 26 ish. I never payed much attention to my favorite band again until I was walking the Avon 3 Day in the 2000's and heard Beautiful Day and remembered what love felt like. Sick, sad, sorry, but true. I love U2 and hardly listened to them for a couple of decades due to shear weird life experience...I think it was a flashlight incident. The most popular band ever? Thank goodness I like a lot of other bands. It's good to hate for no good reason when it doesn't matter that much. Bono makes me gag. And I only missed Larry the drummer really. No regrets.
