This was right about the time MTV was playing I will follow, New Years day and Sunday Bloody Sunday videos daily.

    Funny you should mention Cheap Trick, because I got to see them before they were famous, too. I lived in Madison Wisc when they were still a local bar band in the area (being from nearby Rockford), and I met Rick Neilson. Well, I'm not sure "met" is really the word, but I was really drunk one night and this weird guy kept talking to me and acting odd, and I didn't actually know who he was until he climbed onstage.

    my only similar experience was being on a hs committee to get a band for a party and we got a band named WILD CHERRY for about 500 bucks. A few months later they released "Play that Funky music white boy". THe next year I tried to get them again but we didn't have 10,000 bucks to blow

    One of my best friends when I was a grad student was the son of a man who owned a night club that featured some up and coming acts in the Queens area. This guy got to be a friend of Joe Strummer-sadly when they played nearby I was out of town since I was the varsity coach as well.

    Re: Vote! Top U2 Song (pt1)

    Depends on the moment I suppose...

    "One" with MJB...much better than the straight up U2 version
    Pride
    Live version of "Love and Peace or Else"
    Acoustic version of "Walk On"
    Sunday Bloody Sunday
    Live version of "Sometimes You Cant Make It On Your Own"
