I've never read such a fulfilling, in detail description of a band from before the first note was played to the present. U2 by U2 follows the individual and collective lives of Bono (Paul Hewson), The Edge (Dave Evans), Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen, Jr.
Like most aspiring musicans, I myself, love reading about the trials and tribulations of band life. What better band to look to other than the biggest band on the planet! Four friends who have stuck together since the late 1970's in the meak Dublin, Ireland to the world.
From Larry Mullen, Jr.'s kitchen to their unsuccessful stabs at getting a recording contracts to finding their manager Paul McGuiness (who is still with them today) to recording with Steve Lillywhite to world fame. You need to read this! Any U2 fan, any non U2 fan.
