"I remember dreaming that it might last for ever but I do remember also thinking, 'We're in school, we're 17, in a year's time people may move on... and maybe it won't be there.' "But in my dreams I wanted to believe that these three people I was making music with, that this would be my destiny and we would be making music for the rest of our lives together."
Adam has been speaking to Perros De la Calle Radio Show in Buenos Aires, one of a series of interviews the band are taking part in this week. Over in our community area, the team have started posting audio of some of the interviews - first up that conversation with Adam and then two with Bono, one with KROQ in LA and a second with the BBC's Jo Whiley. (UPDATE: Bono's extended interview with Dave Fanning on RTE now added.)
'A U2 album never gets finished, it just gets released....' Edge was on air with Alan Cross, an old friend of the band.
'I want these tunes to be airborne, light in their feet. To be like Beatles records, you can stray into dark territory but then stray into a pop song.' Bono talked with Mary Lennartz from XRT.
'This ordinary suburban street has produced not only Bono but his childhood friends Gavin Friday and the artist Guggi...' The Irish Times are carrying a story and video featuring Bono's childhood home in Cedarwood Road - the title of one of the tracks on the new album - and fans who pay homage. They're 'mostly Italian', says owner Tom Ryan, 'There are no problems. They’re very gentle. I’d call them gentleman fans. They just come take a photograph and nick the odd flower or two from the garden.'
"What did we really want with these songs ? We wanted to get them to as many people as we can. Could we talk someone into helping us with that?' Time Magazine are carrying a second clip with the band.
