U2 Short Bio
U2, a four-man band out of Dublin, Ireland, formed in 1976 and started as a rock/punk band as many of the surrounding bands were doing at the same time. The band was made up of Bono (born Paul Hewson) on vocals, Adam Clayton on bass, The Edge (born David Evans) on guitar and keyboards, and Larry Mullen Jr. on drums.
The band, with each member still in high school, won a talent contest in 1978 before signing on with manager Paul McGuinness. McGuinness helped the band release their debut EP “U2 Three” which was very successful in Ireland but had trouble selling elsewhere.
After some trouble signing with a big name record agency, the group finally came to terms with Island Records who helped the band release “Boy” and “October” in the early 80s. Boy made it all the way to the top 70 in America while October reached #11 in the British charts. The band also took advantage of their timing by releasing videos on MTV, the new music station, which helped them earn even more fans that wouldn’t have been able to follow them while the band was in Europe.
The next two albums that U2 released would both debut at number one in Britain and would almost achieve top ten status in America. Each album came with political and religious messages that were easy to understand and helped the band gain more notoriety before the Band-Aid and Live-Aid concerts in the mid-1980s.
After becoming arguably the band of the 80s in Britain, Ireland, and the rest of Europe, the band was still second-tier when it came to the American crowd, but all of that would change soon after the release of “The Joshua Tree” in 1987. The album was number one all over the world, even being certified platinum in England in only 28 hours, and included hits like “With or Without You” and “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.” After the release of The Joshua Tree, the band took a break for almost three years before joining up again in 1990.
After some time in the studio, the group was able to complete “Achtung Baby,” an album that signified the group was in the process of a huge change. The band came to America with a punk sound that attracted a large group of people but Achtung Baby showed the group moving in the direction of trance and dance. The most amazing thing about the album was that it brought in a completely group of fans without alienating the first group that were still in the mood for punk music. The album immediately shot to number one all over the world and the band decided to follow up the release of the album with a tour that helped the fans experience U2 in the live atmosphere.
After the completion of the US leg of the tour, the group hit the studios again to work on “Zooropa” and then complete their world-wide tour with stops all over the European continent. The band then took another small break before coming back with “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me” for the Batman Forever soundtrack in 1995. Later that same year, the band released Original Soundtracks, Volume 1, under the name “The Passengers,” a move that disappointed fans across the board. After a dry spell in the late 1990s, the band bounced back with albums like “Pop” and “Best of 1980-1990” which was the first in a collection of the hits the band has been fortunate enough to earn over the years.
In the new millennium, the band started with the release of “All That You Can’t Leave Behind” in 2000 and followed the success of that release with “How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb” in 2004. The album sent U2 to the top of the charts once again and actually made them the band of 2004. The success was unexpected by many but the band was always confident they still had the formula for chart-topping hits across the world. The album’s first track“Vertigo” combined the catchy rock guitar lines of the 80s with the upbeat dance sounds of the 90s and made the song one of the top selling singles of the year.
