Saw an older video where RS must've interviewed Bono talking about songs from the Joshua Tree. He was talking about how the Edge sort of approached Bullet with a Jimi Hendrix feel on the solo. I get that, it's a definite nod to Hendrix's Star Spangled Banner (which, gulp, I have to say I appreciate, but never really dug. Too chaotic for moi...kind of like, well...I'm not in to bebop jazz either. There, I said it ;oD). Anyone else get the "When the Levee Breaks" by Zep vibe from the song. Is that too easy? I wonder if the guys acknowledge that. Maybe that's an oldie but goodie topic.

Without a doubt.

Led Zeppelin's John Bonham was a definite influence on Larry for Bullet the Blue Sky and I'm almost certain Bono states that on the TV programme Classic Albums - U2: The Joshua Tree.

It will be somewhere on YouTube and is well worth a watch.
