Happy 52nd Birthday, The Edge ♥ Born August 8th, 1961.
"Embarrassing moment! My room overlooks the park and yesterday during the afternoon I’d opened up all the blinds and taken back the curtains so I could look out over the park. Come nightfall, I was grooving to some rap record in my room, bopping around the room for maybe half an hour. I don’t know what I was doing, just messing around…and at one stage I looked out of the window and there were about 200 people looking up, clapping, applauding my dancing. That was funny." - August 21st, 1992 at The Four Seasons Hotel in Boston.
♛ Happy birthday, David Evans aka The Edge (8 August 1961)
Happy 53rd Birthday BonoThank you for the music, but above all, thank you for inspiring us to constantly rise above ourselves while looking for better answers to those fundamental questions.
Happy 51st Birthday, Larry ♥ Born October 31st, 1961.
“My earliest memory of Larry was when we were starting off. We were at our first rehearsal in his kitchen and all these girls, all these 14 and 15 year old girls kept climbing over the walls and looking in at the windows at Larry. Larry just shouted at them to go away and then turned the hose on them. He’s not interested in being a pop star. Larry likes to play the drums.” - Bono
So I know I’m incredibly behind on the U2 anniversary celebration and everything
but I just wanted to say, really simply and without going on for eons like I easily could, that if U2 hadn’t become a band 36 years ago, then I would most certainly not be the person I am today. I can sincerely and honestly say, without a drop of exaggeration, that I owe everything to them— everything.
❞ There were no jobs to get. It was like we were all going nowhere, so we decided to go nowhere together and form a band. - Larry on the beginnings of U2.
Happy 36th Anniversary U2!
Happy Anniversary, U2 ♥ Formed September, 25th, 1976.
“It was like we were all going nowhere, so we decided to go nowhere together and form a band.”
- Larry Mullen Jr.
“We are family … I go to parties with these guys, and I end up sitting in the corner talking to them. It’s weird. It’s actually weird. It’s the weirdest thing. I have other best friends too - I’m not saying they’re my only friends, but they are my best friends.”
- The Edge
“We do great work together and we do inspire each other, and I think we have a very good sense of how much further we can go in the company of each other than just on our own.”
- Adam Clayton
“There’s something we’ve had to fight for in the group, and it’s there. It’s a real love of each other and love of what we do, and it’s a flame. There’s times when it feels like it’s nearly been blown out, but it’s there.”
