2 questions about Rattle and Hum

1) The songs that are featured in the soundtrack-are they taken from several shows or just one particular concert?

2) "Don't believe the devil, i don't believe his book" - does such a book exist? (as opposed to the Bible?)

Any diet book!

Eat what you want, when you want in moderation and exercise! Throw the diet books out the window.

There is a book called the Satanic Bible. It's by Anton LaVey. It is actually an interesting read. I read it for a freshman seminar. The ideas in it are not necessarily what people may think when they hear 'satantic'. It is just a different perspective.

I've always taken that as a figurative use of the word "book."

I heard that Kathie Lee Gifford is writing her biography, so that would qualify.

Adam: Look guys, I got a Springfield spoon for my spoon collection.
Edge: Oh boy, here we go...
Bono: Wow, how many is that now Adam?
Adam: Nine. If I didn't have my spoons, I'd go insane.
Bono: Can I see it?
*adam gives bono the spoon, bono throws it away*
Adam: My spoon!

I think Pub be right here. Its more just a term for Bono not believing in the devil and his songs.

haha PopFly

They are taken from several concerts, but most of the tracks come from 2 concerts:
- Denver, McNichols Arena, 8 November 1987 (almost all B&W footage except All Along The Watchtower & When Love Comes To Town)
- Tempe, Sun Devil Stadium, 20 December 1987 (all colour footage)

The other two songs are from:
- San Francisco, Justin Herman Plaza, 11 November 1987 (All Along The Watchtower)
- Fort Worth, Tarrant County Convention Center, 24 November 1987 (When Love Comes To Town)

C ya!

U2girl, here is the book Bono is referring to in the song God Part II



"Don't believe in Goldman
His type like a curse
Instant karma's going to get him
If I don't get him first"

Albert Goldman wrote a most unflattering book about John Lennon.

There are interviews with Bono talking about this book and the song.

LOL @ Likeo2 and Popfly.

EP and America: Oh, so THAT's where he got the "Goldman" from. I thought he was just referring to corrupt riches in that line.
Thanks for solving my "mystery"!

So as the "devil" line continues "but the truth is not the same without the lies he made up" - is that a referrence to Goldman too?

that's right, God Part II is about Goldman. He's dead now. He wrote that book about Elvis at that time that was revolting, and Bono was vocal about how he felt on raking Elvis over the coals. Have that book, found it at a garage sale. That's one of my favorite songs, the music is great as well as the words. It was the Elvis book by Goldman he was talking about.
