I've been a U2 fan since first hearing "I Will Follow" way back in 1980. And I've been following ever since. I was there at Red Rocks, freezing my butt off until the band hit the stage and then being completely blown away. I haven't missed them since!

Although instrumental, the song '4th Of July' was recorded on the 4th of July, it is about how they felt that day. The Edge was playing the guitar, completely unaware that Brian Eno (one of the producers) was recording it.
