I love this guy and you can tell if heís a real fan. He does a great piece Iím in gods country, and in his list of top 10 drum intros of all time, Larry is named twice (bullet and SBS)

Great song on the album of the 80's. Second single off TJT & number 1 in the US. One of their most universal songs.

I follow Rick but when this popped up in my feed I thought it was the older IGC ep, same thumbnail pic.

Great video! Had several new things for me.

That 7th/11th# note Edge plays? Literally never heard it. Sucks to have hearing loss but those who judge me can suck it. Awesome to hear it now.

Love Rickís appreciation for Larry. All the drumming demonstrations were awesome but I know them... but the Streets one. Sounded totally different than I expected. Will have to listen again.

Love how he noticed Adam jams his bassline sometimes. I think I had actually noticed it in Found before, and certainly other songs. It gives Adam part of his sound.

Mind BLOWN on how the vocals were tuned DOWN?? That clip with Danny is amazing. I want that audio. I really do. Bono is cringeing and wanting to die listening to his own angelic voice. Sheesh. Bob, you didnít have to be such an asshole.

I've really taken a liking to his videos over the past year or so.  Good stuff here.

Highly technical (for a non-musician like me), but highly interesting, nonetheless. This guy is a great communicator. Must be a fantastic teacher too.

It's always been one of my favourites.  Third favourite 1980s U2 song after WoWY and RHMT.
