WEBCAM ANNIVERSARY (?) Music365 told

Music365 told us yesterday that November 1 marked the anniversary of when “U2 set up a webcam from their recording studio in Dublin on an internet site so fans could watch them record their new album, ‘Pop’.”
Being webcam, uh, devotees (some might say “retentive”) this didn’t sound quite right so we checked the original fan archive. After blowing off the dust, wiping off the cobwebs and wondering “what is this mythical “Crayon” beast?”, we were vindicated. October 3, 1996. Ahh, memories.
