"I actually remember Bono sharing with me a story of when he was probably about 15, was on a holiday in Wales and went on one Sunday morning to chapel and was swept away by the music, by the singing. And he joined in with gusto. And he remembers one of the first affirmations of him as a singer occurred right there and then, when people in the row ahead of him turned around and like gave him the big thumbs up as he was letting rip!"
