On November 11th, 1987, U2 played a free show at Justin Herman Plaza, San Francisco. During that show, Bono spray painted “Rock n roll stops the traffic” on the Vaillancourt fountain. This resulted in Bono receiving a rebuke from then San Francisco mayor Diane Feinstein, “I am disappointed that a rock star who is supposed to be a role model for young people chose to vandalise the work of another artist”. This short press conference is Bono’s response to the situation. Special thanks to Sue Fell for providing this interview. Recorded November 1987.
