"I think this is the reason why I started to play music. The genius of Edges guitar playing on this song during the live version. The unique tuning and the ebow, blended with delay and shimmer. It's beautiful."
"MoFo...to me, that's a reason to go out and play live, that song."
Many musicians have been influenced by the work of U2. There are several cover versions of U2 songs by bands such as Pet Shop Boys, Pearl Jam and The Chimes, and musicians such as Cassandra Wilson, Joe Cocker and Johnny Cash.
