Arrghhhh. The pressure to give a synopses of myself!Bedroom wall was covered with U2 posters when I was 13 back in '84. Their live aid performance sealed the deal.Ripped down said posters a few years later and got caught up in a U2 backlash. Returned to the fold many many years later and here I am now.Such are the vagaries of ones teenage years. They can last a long time!
"Adam was very persuasive. He had printed cards with 'Adam Clayton, manager of U2', and he was calling people. This was the post-Geldof world in which it was ok to hustle and hassle for a place at the front of the queue."
- Bono on U2's early days
did you know
The photograph made by Anton Corbijn for The Unforgettable Fire album cover was basically copped from somebody else's photograph (a picture of Moydrum Castle). It ended up in costing U2 some money.
