nator1270 - 11 August, 2010
the start of it all for me.
I remember that summer going on vacation with my family to Shennandoah National Park and on one of our in town visits I stoped at a record store and bought the Joshua Tree tape. From that moment on I listen to it every minute of every waking hour until I got home 3 days later. Probably because I was with my family in a secluded area of Virginia , all I had with me was a Rush tape that I listen to over and over and I was 16 at the time. Then the concert came and my buddy's dad took us (thanks Mr. Barwell). Bono was right in front of us when he fell, I knew right away that something was wrong but he took a 15 minute break and kept on. It was a great show that I will always remember.

MLK at RFK -- Unforgettable (Fire) Show
There is nothing about this show that I do not remember like it was yesterday. Joshua Tree -- the last studio album of the original band before the movie (R&H) and the emergence of "The Fly" and ZOOTV -- the next great incarnation of U2. They played as well as I have ever heard them play and Bono sang with his heart -- even after the hot afternoon into evening spawned a predictable DC thunderstorm, making the stage slippery and causing Bono (hat and hair flying above him) to slip and fall, dislocating his shoulder. It was obvious that he fell hard and left the stage within minutes. But he returned with a makeshift sling around his neck and supporting his aching shoulder and arm. His voice soared through the now cooler, drier, breezy evening air. Fortunately, they'd already played Bullet the Blue Sky so he didn't have to lift the spotlight. And he sadly abandoned the guitar that never makes noise for the rest of the night. They played on, played hard and did a double encore worthy of a Grammy in and of itself -- Pride predictably closing the show with all of the Nation's Capitol singing in unison. It was a night I will never, ever forget.
