Quote from Larry Mullen jr

I was never particularly comfortable with the celebrity status that goes with playing drums for U2. I don't like to draw to much attention to myself. You might say that I chose the wrong career and you may well be right. Playing drums and being creative in the rehearsal and recording studio's are my drugs of choice. When I started out doing this, any idea of eventually becoming a rock star were laughable. I just thought of it as being a group of people coming together to have a bit of fun. It was never anything else, no ideas and no expectations.
