1983 The Beginning

I can clearly remember the first time U2 came into my life. It was very late one night in the summer of 1983 when I watched U2 at Red Rocks on TheTube. Until then U2 had passed me by. The programme started on the TV and I watched it (I didn't intend to initially)and was impressed by some of the songs, but I was impressed even more by the dialogue the young band had with the audience and the earnest lead singer who I later found out was called Bono. Odd name I thought, and a guitarist called the Edge? Mmmm.

I watched the programme to the end. I didn't become an avid fan then, but I never forgot them.
