Yup, Born To Run is a good read.

I would like Bono to write an autobiography. As a matter of fact, I think each of them should do so, without consulting with the others during the writing. Then we could get their own personal viewpoints on themselves and each other...that could be interesting!

That would be great and I think Adams would also be a very interesting read.
Yeah, Adam has been through a lot...plus, he was the "bad boy" of the band during the early years, so that would make it a fun read.

No I honestly think he'd hate to do it. Bono on Bono is a great read and the closest we'll get. But I like the idea of journals or even shorter diary like entries - that A-Z he did was wonderful and he should post something monthly on their website.

I think Larry would write a revealing matter of fact autobiography but again think he'd hate the idea.

Is there any space on the Autobiography shelves these days...what with all these people who have been "famous" for 5 mins....and not forgetting all these youtube vloggers taking up all the space.

I'd love to read that. The B man has a way with words indeed, and the viewpoint of all the band members would make it interesting to read.

I think it would definitely be an interesting read but I'm not sure if I can see Bono doing it.

I'd trust Larry most of all. He'd cut through the hyperbole and revisionist history to give us the raw thing. After U2 by U2, Bono: In Conversation and U2 at the End of the World I don't think there's much else left to tell.

I think we have a long wait as he is not retiring anytime soon, but yeah we've all read so much about him,
what else do we need to know, sometimes the super personal stuff would be interesting i suppose but would
he write more than he's already put out there? I dont really need to know about his wife or family anymore, i
feel thats his personal life...

I always figured that if there was to be an autobiography about Bono, he should definitely write it.

You remind me of that joke: footballer A to footballer B: I liked your autobiography.  Who wrote it for you?
Football B to footballer A: I'm glad you liked it.  Who read it to you?

Just for fun, what would Bono title his autobiography? Man? Something else?

So I'm reading Born to Run, Bruce Springsteen's autobiography, and it's a great read. Supposedly Bruce wrote it all himself, no ghost writer. We know Bono has a way with words. Do you think someday down the road he might write an autobiography?

no.
