"Some artists become dull when they stop drinking or drugging, but Adam's not one of them. He's his old self. He loses none of his rubber-band-shooting,water-gun-squirting, public-disrobing spirit when he doesn't drink."
The song 4th of July is named after the date of birth of Edge's first daughter. It was recorded by accident, Adam was playing some bass lines and Edge just jumped in, both unaware that Brian Eno was recording.
