MY FAVORITE CONCERT EXPERIENCE: My favorite concert experience was at a U2 show. I was standing beside the stage, right in front of the Edge. The second or third song into the set, Bono comes over and puts the microphone in my face. I sing along for a bit before he goes back to center stage. Wow, I think, very cool! Next thing I know, he comes back, grabs me by the shirt collar, puts the mic back in my face and we sing together for a bit more. For the rest of the show, he kept coming over every couple of songs and doing the same thing. It got to a point where the people standing around me were asking if he and I were friends! Too funny. No, we’re not, BTW. I also happened to noticed that the Edge was doing a lot of singing during the show. Huh. In the days after the show, I asked a few insider industry friends what up with all of this and learned that Bono’s voice was shot that night. He was looking for all the help he could get!
I WROTE THIS SONG BECAUSE…: It was a moment of inspiration that fell into my lap.
