Question for drummers

I noticed how often in a U2 song, Larry will hit a particular drum when Bono starts singing. (for example, at "green light" lines in Stay) I think he hits the same drum for example in COBL when the verse starts.

Is there a name for this particular drum hit - I mean is this a regular drummer technique or is this internal Larry cue for Bono it's time to start singing?

i think your talking about a crash cymbal, and it's in every rock n' roll song, but it's not necessarily a cue for the vocals.

I *think* it's a cymbal, the same drum Larry hits at the end of Stay.

Thanks for the info, discotheque!

no snare on that first beat, just crash and bass. you don't find many u2 songs that slow with a crash and snare hit on the same beat.
