Missing the point about the U2 age

Some of you are missing the point of the post about being of U2 age. I guess
you read into it what you want.
The point is this:
YOU WHO DID NOT LIVE IN THESE 36 to38 YEARS DON'T HAVE THE SAME BOND AS US WHO
CAUSE YOU DIDN'T LIVE THROUGH IT!!
It is very simple!!
I am sorry that you don't have a group like U2 to identify with for your age,
atleast the 20 year olds have Pearl Jam. You others are stuck with prolific
groups like hansen and back street boys to identify with your era!!
It is really nothing personal it is just the way it is. My point? I am sure
you who are not our age, mine and U2's are very good fans of U2. No one is
questioning that. The deal is this, there are somethings you just wont get
because of your age, just like there are somethings I wont understand about
being a Rolling Stones or a Beatles fan. This is not a Bond one can have by
reading books or listening to U2 music It is a bond we share because we are
the same age.
Why so defensive about being children. Don't be so much in a hurry to grow
up!! If you were the age of U2 you would have a better understanding.
I mean it is like being born on Halloween. It is my birthday and Larry's
birthday. It is not close to Larry's birthday. Me and larry share the same

went looking for soul and I bought some style. I WANTED TO MEET GOD! to sell
me religion." Bono POPMART
