18. U2

U2 formed in 1976 when Larry Mullen Jr, a 14-year-old student from Dublin posted a note on the school notice board while searching for musicians for his new band. Mullen received six responses to his note, and on September 25th the band began their practice in Mullen’s kitchen. Paul Hewson “Bono” was chosen as the lead vocals, David Evans “The Edge” and his older brother Dik Evans played the guitars, Adam Clayton played the bass guitar. Mullen later described the band as “The Larry Mullen Band” but after Bono showed up and blew everyone away he quickly realized there is no chance of him being the front-man of the group.
