In the Bible, Adam is a figure from the Book of Genesis and supposedly the first human God created from the earth. He lived with Eve in the Garden of Eden until he ate a forbidden fruit and was expelled. In the US the popularity of Adam started growing in the 1960s and currently it is a very popular masculine given name not only in the English-speaking world, but in other languages as well. Because of its profound etymology, harmonious sound and religious connotation, Adam is a perfect name for a man of strong character, charitable personality and pure heart – the name for a true man.

The Current in Minneapolis did an hour long tribute to The Edge, including playing some of this influences. It was pretty good with some surprising choices...search for Transmission to find it!

+Calum McClintock although it's not my favorite, I can see why the producers of the Mandela movie would ask U2 to make a song. They made the song to fit the love that was Mandela!
I find it a beautiful tribute.

Do you wear any special U2 gear on red letter days to honor the band?
 
Today is Walk In My Shoes (Adam Clayton is an ambassador) and tomorrow is Bono's birthday. I believe I'm dressed appropriately. My love for +U2 is evident. .

Why not like the professionals, the first three songs and then enjoy the music?
 
Matt McGee writes this week's OTR column, with thoughts on the use of cameras and phones at U2 shows.

I personally think that having loads of people trying to get a good photo or video just stifles the show, the atmosphere and energy just isn't the same. I went to MK Bowl in 1985, and 3 shows on the Joshua tree tour, all amazing concerts. Then I went to Manchester in 2005, even Bono at one point asked if anyone was out there! Yes there was, they were all taking videos or photos, was the worst U2 show I've seen, because of the crowd, not the band.
