I am only 24 years old but I have been a fan since I can remember. I was lucky enough to grow up with a family that loved great music. In my spare time I love playing the drums which I took up 2 years ago and also enjoy playing hockey and rooting for the New York Rangers!!!!

Get On Your Boots is about Bono taking his family on vacation to France and witnessing warplanes flying overhead at the start of the Iraq War. The chant "let me in the sound" was developed late in the recording sessions and became a theme throughout parts of the album.
