"My all time favorite song. Isolation, separation, desolation. Bono spoke to me at a certain point I’m my life, where those words hit home. Not that I was ever alone or in desperate situation, but isolated enough where it hit home."
Hello from the middle of nowhere. I’ve been a “hardcore” U2 fan since 1989. Prior to that I was familiar with the band as I vividly recall the videos for New Years Day, Sunday Bloody Sunday and Pride. The first album I bought was the Joshua Tree, but it took me a couple of years to explore the band further and immerse myself into their music. I met Bono after a Popmart show in Chicago.

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.
