About this product
- Description'U2 fans will eat this up.' - Booklist 'Jobling presents a researched, kwing and briskly paced saga.' - Publishers Weekly 'Everything there is to kw about U2, good and bad ... A definitive, behind-the-scenes look at the band.' - Unshelved The result of over a decade of exclusive interviews with U2's closest friends and business associates, this is the most explosive and comprehensive biography of the biggest-and most secretive-rock-and-roll band in the world. Author John Jobling charts their compelling rise to the top of the music industry, from their early days in Dublin as DIY post-punk champions to present day stadium rock behemoths, reveals the driving force behind singer Bo's high-profile politicking, and offers intimate insights into the making of their most celebrated albums, including The Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby. This work throws new light on U2's complex personal relationships and controversial business moves, and discovers a music empire at war with itself, struggling to preserve its soul in the face of unimaginable power and wealth. Crammed with startling revelations, this is the definitive account of an iconic rock band-both brilliant and flawed.
