Hear U2 Discuss The Making of The Unforgettable Fire on This Day in 1987

Music Features U2

U2’s fifth studio album, The Joshua Tree, is where the Irish band really hit their stride. It became one of the best-selling albums of all time and their massively influential magnum opus. Full of goosebump-inducing anthems like “Where The Streets Have No Name” and “With or Without You,” the album elevated them to international stadium rockers.

On this day in 1987, U2 were interviewed a few months after The Joshua Tree’s release. They talked about working with Brian Eno on 1984’s The Unforgettable Fire, recording in a castle, touring the world and “setting out to innovate as well as aggravate.” They discuss their symbiotic relationship with Eno, commenting that he saw them as more than just a rock band.
