I'm assuming that Bono plays it on the record. I'm really not sure though. I'll have to check it out.

I believe Bono played it b/c he was the guy who originally came up with the song. He's done it in the past -- wrote "Boomerang" on keyboards which the band eventually amplified.

Well, it's not even the slightest bit difficult, so I'd hope any of the four could play it.

I can send you the Chicago Elevation (May 16th?) version when I get home if you want.



Was it played often? It was played a few times early on in the tour, right?

It was played every show for the first month of the tour, but then it dropped off. It didn't appear a whole lot in Europe and didn't make the third leg. It appeared a total of 29 times and was last played on 22 August 2001 in London.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

i saw some pics of him at one particular show playing a piano and it was labeled, by a fansite as him playing "sweetest thing", and i wasnt sure if that was true, or he just did it at the one show or if that was an every performance of the song occasion... and edge did it normally.

no theories.
