I just finished reading "Killing Bono" (I was Bono's Doppleganger [sp?]) last night. I thought it was incredibly intresting and makes me want to hear more early pre-Boy stuff.

Has anyone else read it? WHat was your thoughts?

Both excellent. :-) I love me some U2 books, but I'd read those any day over non-fic.

Pre-Boy stuff is funny. It's so hard to believe that the band responsible for Zooropa is the same 4 guys playing "Street Missions."

I LOVE that book! Neil McCormick is too awesome.
I remember reading the beginning and laughing so much. This book makes me laugh way too much.

I keep seeing that at Barnes and Noble, and were I not a poor college student, I'd get it... ::small sigh::

I thought it was excellent, definitely gave me a different view of pre-anything Bono especially. And he and Ali! So cute!

It's the first ever U2 book that I owned. I LOVED Adam in that book, everything from streaking naked down the Mall to selling his bass "It's got good action." :)

Neil McCormick's self-depricating life and humor really made it an enjoyable read. The book also gave me a lot of insight into the surroundings the band grew up in, much more so than many of the U2/Bono biographies around.

It's the ultimate loser-that-turned out to be a winner-book.

I saw it in a bookstore somewhere, but by some brain malfunction I didn't pick it up. Now I can't find it...le sigh.

I *really* enjoyed that book. And I think non-U2 fans would as well, because it's really about Neil and his struggle both as a musician and as just a human being trying to figure out where he belongs. But as U2 fan, I was amused at how you identify with Neil's emotions of "I love Bono. He's such a great friend and an amazing person. But I hate the bugger because I should have his life!" Plus all the insights of who the guys are over a 30 year span is really cool, too. :)

I love the book! It's a very interesting read. I was so amused by all the U2 trivia, and it made me understand what the band was all about more. It also had a lot of great insights about the music industry. I recently posted about it here. :)
