cant find something
« on: December 14, 2004, 05:19:03 PM »
I know there was a page at one time on this site that explained what Bono was talking about during some of the VHS and DVD releases.... specifically, who is Jason MacAteer (example, I know who he is) and stuff like that.  I can't seem to find it.  Was that part of the lyrics section?  

Anyway, what is Bono talking about when he says "ring those bells... Edge" during the Boston DVD?  I have seen that referenced several times since then.

the info backgrounders are/was part of the lyrics section, yes.

ring those bells refers to the harmonics that Edge plays during that part of the song.

Thanks, I knew it had something to do with what he was playing, but I wonder why Bono refers to them as "bells".

Because harmonics have a very "ringing sound" unlike normal guitar tones.  You can hear them in the beginning of the last verse of UTEOTW, throughout NYD, etc.
