OTHER NOTES
In 1985 Bono became involved in the Sun City project.  After the initial recording sessions in New York, Bono was inspired to write the song "Silver and Gold".  He wrote the song in his hotel room that evening, and it was recorded with Keith Richards and Ron Wood of the Rolling Stones shortly after.

The song "Silver and Gold" would later be recorded by U2 as a B-Side to Where the Streets Have No Name.  A live version would later appear on the album, Rattle and Hum.
