"I just passed Adam, I said, Adam, you're 40, do you have anything to say? And he said, obscurely, How long do I have to sing this song?"
- Bono in the Yahoo chat, 2000
The song 'One Tree Hill' is named after the highest volcanic hill in Auckland and was dedicated to Greg Carroll, who had become Bono's personal assistant. Greg Carroll was killed in a motorcycle accident in 1986.
