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."
