U2 are so much more than a band for me. Since I first heard them
in 1979, they have spoken to me thru' their music and helped me
articulate my own confusion about growing up in such a divided
country. Yes, the music is ethereal and magical, but U2 have also
been able to offer a still small voice of sanity to the few like myself
in northern Ireland who despise terrorism and murder.

Thank you for your time,

Stephen R. McBride

Stephen, I really liked this comment a lot. I believe U2 will write music
(ie, Please)
to specifically pin-point a needy group (needing emotinal or
spiritual support in times of war, etc.) AND will always touch each
and every listener in a broad sense. Yes, U2 is definitely more than just
a band. U2 carries a message of peace, love, understanding which most
bands (especially a lot of really self-centered American artists) could
come close to making as sincere, honest, and direct.

Thanks for the post,

Chris Anderson
