Never really found them that grand, just my opinion - just of a different era. I can only imagine how much of a mindfuck they must have been back in their day, but from my own point of view, my interest in them only really stretches to snippets in U2 gigs and covers etc. Just never felt any kind of urge to check them out - couple of my uni. mates are into them, but what they've played me never grabbed my interest. Anyway, back to topic:
Just listened my way through most of Zooropa whilst having a mini-workout before bed. My god I love this album.
"There was a time when I would have thought that being in a band meant sex, drugs and rock and roll. It would have been an aspiration originally. But, in a way, once I found myself in that situation, I wasn't so keen on it."

Larry Mullen became Larry Mullen jr. around 1984, to prevent his father getting his tax bills.
