Where do you start when talking about an iconic band like U2? On this episode, we take a look at Ireland’s biggest musical export. Amazingly, the band has been around since 1976, with the same lineup. That alone is practically unheard of in the rock and roll world.
From their beginnings, the members of U2 have demonstrated an awareness of social and political issues and have not been afraid to tackle them head on. Bono has gone on to become extremely influential as an activist, and counts Bill and Melinda Gates among his friends and admirers. As Gates said of Bono’s activism, ‘I’ve got money, but you have influence’.
Enjoy this episode of The Stueytunes Show as we discuss one of the world’s most innovative and influential bands.
