Download seventy minutes of Bono in this Rolling Stone podcast. 'Twenty nine years ago...this note appears from this kid, wants to start a band, plays the drums...

'Larry Mullen is in this tiny kitchen, drum-kit set up, Dave Evans is there, brother Dik is there, card-carrying genius who has already built his own guitar...

'Larry, starts playing the kit, its an amazing sound, he hits the symbol, it's like silver...'

Chatting to Rolling Stone founder and editor Jann Wenner, catch Bono musing on growing up in Dublin, the early days of U2, the first rehearsals in Larry's kitchen the subject-matter of early songs, faith in God...the conversation wanders all over the place and it's a great ride.
