U2

I have been an avid U2 fan for 27 years. Some say obsessed, but I like to say passionate. I discovered U2 in March 1987 with the release of The Joshua Tree. I heard With or Without You and liked it.

Drums – my Music A to Z

I love drums! I love drummers! When I listen to music, all I hear is drums and lyrics. That is what moves me – literally and figuratively.

The Muppets

I’ve loved The Muppets for over 30 years, longer than I’ve loved U2. I used to watch The Muppet Show every week in the late 1970s.
