In 1975, four teenagers gathered in a kitchen in Dublin to discuss forming a band. The drum kit just about fit into the room, the lead guitarist had a homemade guitar, the bassist could barely play at all and nobody wanted to sing. Over thirty years later, they are still together, bound by intense loyalty, passionate idealism and a relentless belief in the power of rock and roll to change the world. U2 have sold over 130 million albums, revolutionized live performance all over the world, spearheaded political campaigns and made music that defines the age we live in. From the anarchic days of their Seventies punk origins, through their Eighties ascent to superstardom, the dark post-modern ironies of the Nineties and their 21st-century resurgence as rock's biggest and boldest band, this is a tale of faith, love, drama, family, birth, death, survival, conflict, crises, creativity--and a lot of laughter.--From publisher description

Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais adapt journalist Neil McCormick's autobiography for the big screen with this Irish rock 'n' roll comedy. Ben Barnes and Robert Sheehan star as Neil and Ivan McCormick, two brothers who form a band in Dublin in the late 1970s with the dream of becoming internationally famous rock stars. Unfortunately, they are quickly overshadowed by their schoolfriend Bono, who has started a band of his own: U2. The McCormick brothers must now stand helplessly on the sidelines of greatness as they watch their old rival soar into the musical stratosphere. Krysten Ritter, Pete Postlethwaite and Marty McCann co-star

ROCK & POP. "Squirm-inducing, excruciatingly honest and painfully funny". (Joseph O'Connor). We all went to school with friends who've turned out more successful than ourselves. But they don't all phone from improbably glamorous places and drive us mad by telling us about it. And they're not all Bono. Neil McCormick always dreamed of life as a rock star. Instead, he had to watch while his friend became one of the most famous men on the planet. "Killing Bono" tells the story of the less-than-successful rival band which he set up with his brother Ivan in the late 1970s. While the young brothers struggled to find success Bono and his friends went on to achieve superstar status. A heartwarming story of friendship, loyalty, rivalry and ambition, read it and weep - with sympathy and laughter. Film tie-in edition
