I am a surfing, filmmaker that is a life long U2 fan.
what they said
"No one knew we had a sense of humour, we had become glum rock's leading lights. Zoo TV opened up all the possibilities of theatre; role-playing, irony, satire and farce, and finally killed off the old idea that we were a band of painfully earnest people who didn't know how to have a good time."
- Adam on ZooTV
did you know
A local violinist, Steve Wickham, approached The Edge one morning at a bus stop and asked if U2 had any need for a violin on their next album (the War album). In the studio for only half a day, Wickham's electric violin became the final instrumental contribution to Sunday Bloody Sunday.
