'The Dandelion was where we really hit our stride.'

Every Saturday afternoon for six weeks, U2 played The Dandelion Market Car Park. 'Fifty pence in, all ages welcome,' remembers Larry. 'People talk about these gigs as being legendary. They were. The Dandelion was where we really hit our stride.'
Edge:' I played an Explorer guitar, which I bought in New York on a brief holiday. ...It was the zig-zag shape which set it apart but the sound and feel were great too. Everyone was playing the same kinds of guitars and I thought, we sound different, let's look different too.' (From 'U2 by U2')
