In A Grand Madness: Ten Years on the Road with U2, Beeaff went toe-to-toe with Bono,The Edge, Adam and Larry on their Joshua Tree, Zoo TV and Popmart tours.

I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by Book Pleasures regarding both my writing career and the new U2 book. If you have time, have a look! Interview with Book Pleasures. In A Grand Madness: Ten Years on the Road with U2, Beeaff went toe-to-toe with Bono,The Edge, Adam and Larry on their Joshua Tree, Zoo TV and Popmart tours. The result was a gue that went well beyond the music. Her powers of analysis and insight into not just U2, but into music and fandom became sharpened with each new journey taken.

Zoo TV show towards an ambiguous, introspective conclusion. It became writer Beeaff's favourite live.

As such, the title evokes the image of black light or an invisible force permeating the darkness, whose connotations are spiritual and personal, as well as technological, reflecting themes of modern alienation explored elsewhere on Achtung Baby and its follow-up album, Zooropa.

This is a great book to read if you are a U2 fan. Having seen U2 six times, and seeing some of those shows with the author, I related to a lot of the stories. Dianne beautifully describes her surroundings, and I relived some great moments in U2 concert-going history! Grand memories, indeed!

Let me start off by saying that I have nothing against Dianne beeaff. But I do find it difficult to enjoy a book about U2 fandom if it lacks the passion and calenture that embodies U2's music: evocotive, captivating, almost intangible gifts to the ears and hearts of those that it has touched. Mrs. Beeaff did an excellent job in record keeping, accounting for the precise moments of her encounters with other fans and even band members and chronicling the sights and sounds at the numerous concerts she's attended over a ten year period. But...what lacks I can't completely put into words. Carter Alan's accounts in U2: OUTSIDE IS AMERICA were extremely vivid, so clear that I could picture what was happening around him, I could fully imagine and experience the emotion the fans around him were experiencing as he chronicled each concert, each fan meeting. Alan's description of the music itself was ardent in depiction and faithful to U2's true sound...he could do so as a lover of music and as a FAN of U2...Beeaff could not. Primm Jal de la Parra did an outstanding job researching and collecting material for the U2LIVE: A CONCERT DOCUMENTARY book. De la Parra also offered authoritive, insightful discussion into U2's studio work, live performances and U2's history, something which was lacking in Beeaff's AGM. B.P. Fallon and Bill Flanigan's works were just as insightful and enjoyable to read. Eamon Dunphy's THE UNFORGETTABLE FIRE was rich in history but lacked the connection between fan and performer. It was clear Beeaff didn't do her homework as was evidenced by her lack of background in U2's work. As U2 fans we admire and are enthusiastic about those we admire as Beeaff had stated. But we also dig into the backgrounds of the people, places and times surrounding U2 and their timeless music. We contemplate the lyrics, however simple of complex they may be. We wonder about their meaning and research the events that could have sparked those lyrics, be they personal to the composer, or economic, social or political commentaries of the world around them. We dig into their musical roots: The Ramones, Led Zeppelin, The Who, Joy Division, Bob Marley, David Bowie, Bob Dylan, The Boomtown Rats, Thin Lizzy, Van Morrison, and even Abba for God's sake (just to name a few). We also peek into what was culturally going on at the time of these musical giants...connections and references to these artists were made by all authors except Beeaff which is an important aspect not to be left out, not by a true fan. This book lacks the comprehension needed to faithfully be a book from a fan's point of view FOR fans. At least this is one fan's opinion.

What can I say? There's some great stuff written about U2. "A Grand Madness" is definitely one of them. And it's different. When I first read it I was in my second year of fandom - when the one thing I still hadn't experienced was seeing my favourite band in concert.
"A Grand Madness" took me on a journey ... not quite like witnessing U2 life, but the closest to this adventure I could get. And it wasn't only about the concerts. I felt like Dianne Beeaffs "life on the road" experiences could have been mine; they seemed to express my own engagement, my own dedication to this wonderful band, my own feelings about the music and the people behind, all the feelings that only a fan can have.
Now that I finally *have* seen U2 on tour (and found some great new friends along the way) I feel even more related to this extraordinary book than before. Because this is the best thing a fan can experience. A Grand Madness indeed.

Having been a U2 fan for many years and in that time seen them live numerous times during their tours I found I could relate to a lot in this book. All the excitement, fun, hardship, emotions that I have felt at times are there. And unlike other books on U2 is it from our - the fans - viewpoint, and that makes a refreshing change. It is also well illustrated with lots of photos never published before. Well worth buying.

I FOUND THIS BOOK TO REVEAL A VERY CANDID INSIGHT INTO LIFE ON THE ROAD WITH THE "BEST BAND IN THE WORLD". THE AUTHOR OBVIOUSLY HAS BEEN THERE AND SHE EXPRESSES MANY FEELINGS THAT I CAN RELATE TO BECAUSE I AM THE SAME AGE AS THE BAND MEMBERS AND I HAVE FOLLOWED THEM FOR 20 YEARS AND...I WILL FOLLOW IN THE FUTURE....GREAT WORK...

Your money can be spent better on more insightful U2 books. In this book the author does an excellent job of keeping detailed records of her journeys and the little "run-in's" with the band.(Or as I like to call them "stalking sessions") She also does an excellent job of boring me. This book for me was the equivilant of sitting at my cousin's house watching an 6-hour slide show of his vacation to Delaware. I love U2 as much as the next fan but she goes a little overboard in the way she speaks of Bono. I don't care what Bono was wearing on March 9, 1992! Or what HER interpation of the music is. How about telling me what Bono thinks about his music, life, sports, religion etc..... Oh she can not do this because she is a physco fan. It almost makes me embarrased to call myself a die hard U2 fan.
