"Adam literally got me by the scruff of the neck and roped me into U2. I didn't really want to be in a band. I was only into it for the sake of the sound of electric guitar, drums, bass and singing."
Starting from Summer 2007 to Summer 2008, U2 had written and recorded 50-60 songs for a new record with Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois. 11 of these were released on 2009's No Line On The Horizon.
