I'm currently hearin: Zero 7 - Out Of Town

Hello all!

I just have a quick question. I was looking through my HTDAAB booklet a few days ago, looking at the lyrics to "One Step Closer". As the song came to a close, my eyes traveled down to one small line, "Special thanks to Noel Gallagher." Now, I am a huge Oasis fan as well as a huge U2 fan, so I was wondering if anyone had and idea of why Noel was thanked for this.

Bono was having a conversation with Noel about his (Bono's) father, and he mentioned that toward the end of his life his faith was shaken, and perhaps didn't believe in God.

Noel responded, "Well he's one step closer to knowing now, isn't he?"

From that Bono wrote the song.

I knew Bono and the Oasis duo were friends but it does make for a curious friendship: Bono the straight laced, good family man vs. Oasis: drugs, alcohol, and bad attitudes. Interesting... I love Oasis too, quite an odd pair if you ask me.
