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!
"It doesn't have to be illegal substances. You can be addicted to applause, you can be addicted to being on the road. I mean, being in U2 can be its own addiction. We have to recognize that. And there's a part of that in the lyrics. The image of Daddy is one of benevolence and in this song it's twisted around and become the thing that you're dependent on and that you look for support from."
