In 1976, drummer Larry Mullen, Jr. would do something that would change the world forever. He posted a notice at his school, Mount Temple Comprehensive, calling for auditions to start a band. Four people responded--Paul Hewson, David Evans, Dik Evans and Adam Clayton. Keeping change from names like Feedback and The Hype, they soon got their big break. In 1978, they won a talent contest in Limerick, Ireland. They went with CBS Records and changed their name to U2. Dik soon left to join another band. Then Paul McGuinness became their manager.
From then on it was up hill. Now having produced 11 major albums, U2 has climbed to the top and are bigger than ever.
Currently their newest album, No Line on the Horizon
, was released on February 27th in Ireland, March 2nd everywhere but the US and March 3 in the US.
