From the iTunes release to Benedict Cumberbatch, from why Larry and Adam don't have 'cool names' ... to what rockstars smell like.

You asked. They answered.

Personalities
Although I know precious little about the U2 musicians' personalities, I can gather a general and only potentially accurate concept of each one. What I know about them is mainly from the Rattle and Hum DVD, this segment here, and other brief moments over the decades when they have slightly displayed aspects of their personalities. Bono especially, and to some extent the other band members, can go from playful to serious and back - an attribute of the happier people of the world, Adam is an intellectual with an underlying free-spirit, Larry can sometimes be intense but always good-natured, and Edge is humble to never believe himself a total master, even though relatively speaking, he and his cohorts are phenomenal musicians. I believe it is because each has his own unique primary persona that - as a group - they blend so well. I think it keeps them from getting into much competition with each other, something that can damage or disband a band.

Boys, you should not have worried about trying to get your songs through all the noise! I and many others get it, will always get it, Songs of Innocence, to me is going back to the past, listening to that first U2 song, going to the first live show and being hooked for life, I get it, love it, and always will! Well done U2!

He doesn't say much but Larry can pack t
Ironically the one time I get something for free I'm gonna end up buying it anyway. This album is SO incredible I just have to have the second disc w/ all the extras!! It's crap that you should even have to apologize. Love, love, love U2...still putting out the greatest music being made. I, for one, say THANK YOU!

Very cool
Quite entertaining, Bono you answered with tact on that question, don't worry about all the complainers you all pored your hearts out into the record, and I love it.

Good questions
Thanks guys for sitting down and answering some very good questions. Forever after for me, Benedict Cumberbatch will be known as "Benedict Cucumber" (thanks Larry). Please don't feel badly about releasing the album the way that you did. Just because a very loud minority had a problem with it, doesn't mean it wasn't a valid idea. Some people need to be shown what a great rock album sounds like. You have a quieter, more respectful majority that have taken these songs and this album to their hearts. So no more musing about relevance, please. You guys are out in front, and every other band is on notice. You all look great (love the hair, Adam); and I can't wait until the 2015 tour.

They did not reply me
I met Larry Mullen J. in Dublin. It was 2003, we were in the same bar/pub called 31. I will never forget that wonderful experience. But I'd like to meet all the band. I bought each album, I know each songs, I study all the lyrics of every single songs the have been written in their life, I spent a lot of money for their live exibitions, I have been in Bray for a couple of months and I missed their performance and I was so angry for that. I want to know all the band at least before my departure. Please

Q & A in a U2 kind of way
A little drop of humour, a touch of old school confidence ........and a dash of brilliance all mixed in together.
