'This Is'
At the Olympia Theatre in Dublin a wonderful crowd of Irish musicians celebrated the songs of Aslan and paid tribute to Christy Dignam.

All the way from Electric Lady Studios in New York City U2 took part with a performance of Aslan's 'This Is'. As MC Guggi put it afterwards, 'That wasn't too shabby'.

Thank you
It does not matter- whether it's their own songs, or someone else's, U2 are the best, only equalled by four other lads from Liverpool. Beautiful. Love and peace.

Simply great!
I can't believe it. Take it on the next album, please. Right after "Mercy", for example ;). The song goes around and around... So much positive energy, especially for Christy in this hard times.

Live
Live Aid is what made me a U2 fan though over the years I probably have seen Aslan live more times than I have seen U2 live and I have seen U2 live 12 times over 6 tours and 26 years. Unfortunately an ultimate gig for me would be for both acts to be on the same billing and it has never happened. I wish Christy well and I am delighted that U2 did THIS IS, a great tune and a great version.

We miss you guys
I have listened this song so many times that I don't really remember how many. AMAZING!!!. Come on guys take out the new album. Have passed four years already. We want to hear about you, at least some studio video, a song, a single or something. Best Regards from Monterrey, Mexico. SalU2 :D

Simply amazing....
Christy is in my prayers. The guys are always so willing to help anyone in need, and they sound incredible doing so. I'm not sure how to get a hold of this but I second the notion of releasing it to raise money for cancer research and to support those left behind because of the diseases devastating consequences. Thank you to the entire band and this site for your ongoing commitment to your fans. This is an amazing cover by my favorite band and all I can say is the world is blessed to have them.

Outstanding!
I just have to play it again and again and again... Though just cover, it sounds like U2 original. Please, put it as B-side to one of your upcoming singles. Awesome song, awesome sound, awesome lyrics. Good luck Christy!
