[SL] In January 1993, when the USA were celebrating the inauguration of
Bill Clinton's office, there were
several 'Rock&Roll Inaugural Balls'. On the 20th, REM's Michael Stipe and
Michael Mills joined U2's Larry
and Adam in a performance of "One". This is recorded and some bootlegs
actually include this rather unique
reunion. The union of these artists was immediately labeled 'Automatic
Baby' (as in 'Automatic for the People'
and 'Achtung Baby', their latest albums).
[SS] The song has/will be released officially on various discs
including the Childline disc.
