Gerry Ryan RIP
The Irish broadcaster Gerry Ryan died on 30th April aged only 53. He was an institution in Ireland and a champion for U2 over the years. I have many fond memories of listening to Gerry's morning show when I have been over in Ireland. He was funny, irreverent and had a wonderful rich voice. He was taken far too early. Below is the live tribute U2 sent from New York to the funeral in Dublin on the 7th of May. It's a fabulous version of With Or Without You, that was full of emotion. I like Bono's words at end. "Goodbye Gerry - see you down the road."
