luckily usually with this kind ofwork you do have fun I I can't speak foryou tonight but I'm having fun good I'mglad um but but I will say having seenthis uh it's turned into a film and it'slike an hour and a half long and reallythere's so much going on but the bestpart is is the music and uh that'sreally the the reason to enjoy the musicis great and the stories are great andjust you being in Dublin where you'dnever been before never been to Dublinhave you been to Ireland I have not noI'd love to go but I've not been and tobe there with these guys who are reallyvery special people Bono I want to tellyou something uh there's a lot of peoplein rock and roll music and a lot ofpeople writing rock and roll music andthe definition rock and roll musicpretty broad it's along the horizon it'sendless these guys uh are existing andPerforming and creating at a a differentlevel and when you spend time with themyou get to appreciate that they're notjust another song that you may behearing somewhere this is somethingdifferent and to me that was a thrilland also intimidating and Bono and theedgeuhwildly Smart Guys very smart guys andreally you spend time with them wellwe've had them here on the show yeah anduh I love them I really do I mean thisfor me that you and them is like it's asif you made this specifically for mewhich I know you didn't but one of thethings that I thought just we know wedid greatwas uh after the show after the concertit introduced me in front of their hometown crowd which is great you guys go toa bar a pub as they call them andeverybody is singing along in the pubexcept for one there was one person notsinging out see if you can guessI was so worried about this because Iknew that you go to a pub and everybodyis full of Guinness and sing alongbecause you've got Bono on the edge andthen like a half a dozen really greattalented Irish musicians performing in away you're not going to hear themperform yeah so sing along and and a lotof this and I just at one point I foundmyself with a camera like about here andI thought oh[Music]so I just started doing this[Laughter][Applause]do you ever sing along do you ever seeno it was something I can remember goingto church with my parents and you knowanybody go to church yeah yeah surea lot of it is hymns and uh I would fakesinging and and periodically uh a womanmy mother's age not my mother but awoman my mother's age who should haveknown better and should have minded herown business would say well you're notsinging at all young manand then we would we would have to cuther tires yeahthat doesn't doesn't come uh naturallybut God what an experience that nightwas what about sitting there with theBono and with Edge and there they'vewritten a song for you oh my god aboutyou yeah somewhat although I read thelyrics it doesn't seem to really beabout you I'm going to be honest butthere's thank you for being honestthey're singing to youand I can't imagine any situation hasanyone ever written a song for youum no no yeah no nor I yeah and we're inthis place called the March Library it'slike from the 16th century and there'sthere's books the size of this chair andit's huge it's a well-regardedacademically and it's freezing it wasvery very cold in there so the enginebutton and they come in and Edge saysyou know I was up until three o'clocklast night writing this song and Ithought oh I'll be darned hoping thatthat'd be the end of itand start getting out sheet music andthe the band everybody's got anarrangement and and they're now they'resinging this song that the night beforethey have created and I'm thinking twothings I hope this goes awayand and secondly I'm thinking oh my Godthis is not badso it turns out to be a real deal and ifyou're going to have and these guysaren't kidding around writing songs doyou think if you had people sing to youmore you would become more comfortablewith it like yes I do Jim you know let'sdo thatI've got my guitar herehow are you when people sing to you hateit don't like it at all it doesn'tmatter how nice it is or how beautifulit sounds it just makes me want to crawlunder the that's right same with me andI don't like it when people sort ofcoerce you into everybody I don't knowyeah I know yeah I'm I'm not everybodyhave you looked into this why you areunable to enjoy moments like that haveyou do I seem like I have anyself-introspections yes[Laughter]when you're here in uh in Hollywood aswe call it do you ever get the urge todrive down the block to The Comedy Storewhere you work for so long as a youngman where you did stand up with yourfriends and get up on stage there and doa set no no no no I was never really astand-up comedian I I did stand upcomedy because I knew to be on TheTonight Show which was my reason forleaving Indiana was to you'd had to dosome stand-up comedy because they're notgoing to put you on because hey Iunderstand this kid just moved fromIndiana here he isuh so that's all I could do and when Iwould go on the road I did you you havedone yeah I found that every afternoonyou'd be in any Town any college town inthe United States I remember one timethey'd always send the guy the presidentof the student body to pick you up atthe airportso you fly all night and you're halfGrog to get off the plane the guy picksyou upand he wants he wants to talk and Idon't want to talk and I'm in the backseat and I and I look in the rearviewmirror and I see the guy drivingyeah because he's been up drinking allnight and he gets to go pick up[Laughter]pull over and I had to drive myself fromthe airport to the gig so a little ofthat goes a long way well it is uh athrill to have you here I'm not gonnathank you very much I know uh I had toask to be on this show and that'simpolite it's not this man uh in hislifetime in his career that I've knownhim has been so kind to me and thepeople who work with him are equallykind if not perhaps a little moreuh and and I love being on TV so
