Reseña del editor
The members of U2 tell the complete story of the band in their own words, in an anthology of their history, songs, stories, images and memorabilia, an accounting of everything fans want to know, from U2's birth 25 years ago and to the musicians' personal dramas and successes to the politics and emotions that drive them and their music. Reprint. 30,000 first printing.
In 1975, four teenagers from Mount Temple School in Dublin gathered in a crowded kitchen to discuss forming a band. More than 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 an epic journey that has taken the band from the clubs of Dublin to the stadiums of the world, U2 has sold more than 130 million albums, revolutionized live performance, spearheaded political campaigns, and made music that defines the age in which we live. Told with wit, insight, and astonishing candor by the band members themselves and manager Paul McGuinness, with pictures from their own archives, U2 by U2 allows unprecedented access into the inner life of the greatest rock band of our times.
