U2's inspiration

August 15, 2004

I really enjoyed the songwriting article on U2 ("Where Craft Ends and Spirit Begins," Aug. 8).

From the band's comments to Robert Hilburn's, it really captured the creative process and how it uniquely works. It was great to read an article on the process rather than on branding, clothing line tie-ins, etc.

Unbelievable U2 story. As I listen to their new album for the first time, I will be thinking about Robert Hilburn's story and how they came up with these songs.
