'Loudest Folk Group in the World'

16 May 2005
'I take all the blame for us.' explained Larry to CNN's People in the News. 'It's the best job these guys have ever had. In fact, it's the only job these guys have ever had.'

Lots of great soundbites in the transcript that CNN have just published of U2's appearance on 'People in the News'.

Like this:

BONO: Larry was 14, Edge was 15, I was 16. Adam was 16. We were just kind of
hanging around with each other.

MULLEN: I could play a little bit. You know, I could play a little bit. And they couldn't play at all.

BONO: I remember Adam as being the one who had the plan. He had all the
fancy words, like action, fret. And he had a mad afro. He looked like Michael Jackson in reverse.

Edge was in the corner being sort of quiet, and interesting, and moody, as all guitar players should. And Larry was just, you know, just there he was. He was just a star, obviously.

MULLEN: It looked like in that room of chaos, if you could keep time for more than five minutes, you were a superstar.'
