Great find, Jen - thanks for sharing. Neat to see him speak at length like that.

This is great! U2 should send Larry to speak when they win awards.

Sounds like Bono's speech writer.   :)

Very good speech, especially loved the politics comments. He and Bono really are on opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to that sort of thing.

One of the best u2 speeches I've ever heard, from the "quiet one", no less!

Larry is an impressive public speaker.  Nice mention of his own team at the end.  Generous compliment to his bandmates.   But he already knows this because he can read minds.

This is why Larry is my favorite band member (and I don't just say that because I'm drummer!). He has a warmth and sense of humor that often goes unnoticed. I wish he'd do stuff like this more often, yet it's special because he so rarely does it.

Great job, Larry!

He really knows how to entertain people when he gets on stage. Instead of acting, he should be a stand up comedian. Very warm and personable.
