Tempus Fugit

It was twenty years ago today that U2 played their famous -and controversial – gig on the roof of Los Angeles’ late Republic Records:

It was the video that brought on two reactions from me:

  1. I’m not so much afraid of heights (I used to be a lighting gaffer) as I am afraid of edges.
  2. Speaking of Edge – I think this was the video that first made me wonder if he was turning into a male Irish Greta Garbo.

  1. Had to play the Replacement’s Kids Don’t Follow after watching that one.

  2. I don’t have a fear of heights either. I prefer to call it a healthy respect for gravity.

  3. Is this some kind of test? 2013 – 1987 = 26.

    “Irish rockers U2 performed their new song “Where the Streets Have No Name” on the rooftop of Los Angeles’ Republic liquor store (now closed) for music video footage on this day in 1987.”

  4. Swiftee … you must have forgotten their heritage. If they were at a liquor store they wouldn’t have made it up to the roof …
