Great listen (if you have about 90 minutes).

Shocked Stern who's always poked fun at them had them on the show

One of the best U2 interviews I've ever heard. Bono and Edge were relaxed, candid, funny, smart and us longtime fans heard some new tidbits - who knew that Edge and his brother used to steal chemicals from high school to make explosions.

forget what you may think about Stern, he has evolved somewhat and does great interviews, even if he has never been a fan.

I think even Howard Stern realizes all of the hit songs they have made and he was overwhelmed by that fact in the moment.

Bono is really uncomfortable with the 'brush with mortality' questions.  I guess he kind of wishes he hadn't said as much as he did about it.  Particularly when Stern appears not to know what the actual event(s) was.

Such a great interview. Howard covers a lot of topics i've been dying to hear about for years. Especially the early days, with Bono and his father and Edge kicking his brother out of the band.
Howard seems to have a great knowledge of the bands history, impressive.

Who does know? Bono and the band both seem determined to keep it from the public i.e., in the liner notes and interviews). Even the article I saw that claimed to reveal the cause did nothing of the sort. The privacy is not a bad thing, IMHO.
