Bruce Springsteen performs with Adam Clayton of U2 (R) during a surprise concert in support of World AIDS Day in Times Square in New York December 1, 2014. Springsteen filled in for U2's injured lead singer Bono on Monday evening.
"I had in my head melodies from a very early stage. I just couldn't quite get them out. I went with my mother to St. Patrick's Cathedral School to see if I could get in. And they had a choir and the head master said we've got a choir here. Would you be interested in being a part of that? I'm sort of shaking, don't know where to turn. And my mother said no not at all he's not interested at all in that. She was trying to help me out."
- Bono, 2022
