U2 by U2

In 1975, four teenagers gathered in a kitchen in Dublin to discuss forming a band. The drum kit just about fit into the room, the lead guitarist had a homemade guitar, the bassist could barely play at all and nobody wanted to sing. Over thirty years later, they are still together, bound by intense loyalty, passionate idealism and a relentless belief in the power of rock and roll to change the world. U2 have sold over 130 million albums, revolutionized live performance all over the world, 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, the dark post-modern ironies of 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.--From publisher description.

Ive just started reading but it is insightful into the complex musicians and how they have put their musical talent to let the whole world know how they REALLY feel about the troubles in Ireland and everywhere else. Читать весь отзыв

Great Book -- actually met the entire band at an exclusive book signing and got the book signed. It has some rare photos and interesting anecdotes about the band and their time together. Читать весь отзыв
