question about Slane

I'm not sure where to post this (so mods, feel free to move if necesary) but at the end of angel of Harlem when Larry keeps playing the drums, than Bono calls him Angel of Dorset street.

What's the connection between Larry and Dorset street? I've wondered about this ever since I saw the dvd but I hesitated to ask. Is Dorset street in the red area of town or what??
I guess curiosity killed the cat.

I got really curious about this awhile back and went looking around... I found something saying there's a pub named the Angel on Dorset Street.

Thanks

So basically Bono was saying that Larry was

Well he was quite out of the loop, first starting too late and then he just won't quit !

I hate in SBS when Edge is playing in the afternoon AND in the night... with a purple AND a red shirt...

I hate when they inserted images from the 25th show...



"oh, look Edge... a beachball"

That's the part when we see why Bono is not a soccer player



talking about soccer... when Bono wraps the flag around him and says "imagine... it's Jason McAter" and then screams... for a moment I thought that it was ROBIN WILLIAMS (they're the same )


PS: who noticed that the DVD Editor's name is McCUE ?...

I have another question. Maybe this is silly but I have no idea, so don't shoot me, but what is the "duet of the silver fish"??

Oooh that answers my question of what he was saying. I kept putting the volume up but I couldn't understand a word he was saying!

when he mentions Edge's father and his own father walking in NY, late at night, both of them drunk as farts, singing the duet of the silver fish.

I think it' s just before he sings Kite

It probably is , but I wonder if it is something typical Irish.
Maybe the mystery will be resolved here sooner or later

I think the quote is - singing the duet "from" the Silverfish. Knowing his fathers love of opera it could it be from some opera they all knew. Just a guess however..
