"I was studying in college overseas in Berlin (East) in 89, hearing rumors U2 was in Hansa Studios making a new album, heard some of the Salome tracks from the a person selling bootlegs at a local flea market, such a cool moment to be in the same place as U2. Will always hold Berlin moments dear to myself."
