"There's a small population of U2 fans that really 'get' us. If we could play a concert to just them, that would be a dream of ours. If only there was someone who could identify and lable these fans and assemble them for us....even give them a name, that would be really helpful."

In September 1976, Larry Mullen, Jr. posted a notice on Mount Temple Comprehensive School's bulletin board to form a band. With seven responses to Larry's note, the band which were known at the time as The Hype, The Larry Mullen Band, Feedback and later U2 is whittled down to four as seen from 1980's debut Boy to the current day.
