"I hate the word celebrity. I would say celebrity upends God's order of things and mothers and nurses. These are the really important things. You might think singers love the sound of their own voice, why else would they be out there? Actually, people will step onto a stage to try and find their voice. It's the strangest thing. You’re actually trying to find out who you are. Art is an attempt to identify yourself and hopefully, when that job is done, you can fuck off."
- Bono, 2020

In September 1976, Larry Mullen, Jr. posted a notice on Mount Temple Comprehensive School's bulletin board to form a band. With seven responses to Larry's note, the band which were known at the time as The Hype, The Larry Mullen Band, Feedback and later U2 is whittled down to four as seen from 1980's debut Boy to the current day.
