what they said
"Adam was very persuasive. He had printed cards with 'Adam Clayton, manager of U2', and he was calling people. This was the post-Geldof world in which it was ok to hustle and hassle for a place at the front of the queue."
- Bono on U2's early days

During a concert in Atlanta in 1985, Bono shined a spot light on his dad in the audience. His dad, Bob Hewson, responded by giving his son the middle finger.
