On Sale: October 9, 2006
Add to Wish List
In 1975, four teenagers from Mount Temple School in Dublin
gathered in a crowded kitchen to discuss forming a band.
The drum kit just about fit into the room, the lead
guitarist was playing a homemade guitar, the bassist could
barely play at all and nobody wanted to sing. Over thirty
years later, Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen
Jr are still together, bound by intense loyalty,
passionate idealism and a relentless belief in the power
of rock and roll to change the world.
In a epic journey that has taken them from the clubs of
Dublin to the stadiums of the world, U2 have sold over 130
million albums, been number one all over the world,
revolutionized live performance, spearheaded political
campaigns and made music that defines the age we live in.
From the anarchic days of their Seventies punk origins
through their Eighties ascent to superstardom with the
epic rock of 'The Joshua Tree', the dark post-modern
ironies of 'Achtung Baby' in the Nineties and their 21st-
Century resurgence as rock's biggest and boldest band,
this is a tale of faith, love, drama, family, birth,
death, survival, conflict, crises, creativity . . . and a
lot of laughter.
