U2 Brief Biography

U2 are the most successful rock band to have come out of Ireland, and since their memorable performance at Live Aid in 1985 they have been acknowledged by many as not only the best stadium rock band in the world, but also as the best rock band to have emerged in the past 30 years.

Musically, U2 have produced a string of notable songs such as 'One' and 'I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For', and their 'The Joshua Tree', released in 1987, is one of the greatest of all rock albums.

Formed in Dublin in 1978, U2's line-up has remained constant - with Bono's pleading vocal style, The Edge's unique, melodic, chugging, Keith Levene-influenced guitar style, combining with Adam Clayton (bass) and Larry Mullen Jnr. (drums) to produce that memorable, sweeping U2 sound.

U2 in their pomp. I thought Bono really seized the moment here and showed an appreciation of what Live Aid was meant to be about, when he danced with the girl - love, humanity, etc. Okay, the event didn't stop world hunger, but at least Geldof tried. - P.R.
