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!
"The last 24 hours were just extraordinairy. It was like Chinese calligraphy, where the monks take ages to mix the ink and then - bam! - it all happens in seconds."
- Bono on the making of the No Line On The Horizon album, 2009

The title for the song 'Shadows and Tall Trees' is taken from William Goldings "Lord Of The Flies", whose 5th chapter bears the same name. The song, and the album, is about boyhood, innocence and struggle, as is Golding's book.
