"Just about the only song I truly loved from the first ever listen"
acerca de Leeds_Wanderer
I left school in 1987, was unemployed for 6 weeks, so when the tickets came on sale for the Joshua Tree Tour, I bought my first u2 ticket for Elland Road, Leeds with my first welfare check!! I've seen u2 on every tour since.
"I had no idea about videos, none of us did. I had just bought a brand new pair of red Doc Martens boots which cost me fifteen pounds, a lot of money back then. There was a scene where the director, Meiert Avis, asked me to spash though a puddle. I said,"I'll get my new Docs wet." He said, "Yeah, well that's what we want for the scene." I told him "Forget it." I wasn't getting the boots wet."
- Larry Mullen Jr. about the video to 1982's 'A Celebration'.
The song 'Scarlet' was inspired by a thought in Bono's mind: "does God need salesmen?". The band was also in a minimalist mood that day.
