U2 if U2 never formed?
« on: February 22, 2011, 09:35:09 PM »
What would the fabulous four be doing otherwise?

I could see Bono as a world renowned journalist and activist

Edge as a high ranked technician for NASA

Adam working in the fashion business

And Larry as an actor  ;D

Edge - music teacher (I think he has a lot of patience for the job!)

Adam - art gallery manager

Larry - motorbikes store owner ;D

Bono - activist or politician :-\

They've told us during one show once. I only recall Edge saying he'd be a male model. I can see that. ;)

They'd probably be victims of the Irish economic calamity and be signing on the dole right now.

Bono would be down the pub drinking and smoking (outside), chattering away to anyone that will listen; Larry would be a bare-knuckle fighter, and be down the gym pumping iron; Adam would be a drug addict; The Edge would be the responsible one, still working for the state as a taxman.

Their kids would have to leave their country to look for work and a better life.

Larry's also said he'd be working in a shoe store.  I don't remember where that came from but I do remember reading it and thinking "A store with cute shoes AND LMJ?  HEAVEN!"

Thats what I was thinking, except I'd say they'd all be at the pub every weekend...maybe singing acoustic guitars in the corner.

I've pondered this quite creative question all day.  At one point I thought I was going to cry.  I just can't imagine a world without U2 in it.  It would be almost like if Jesus went another direction and decided not to go to the cross.  Honestly, I would not be here today if it wasn't for U2.  I remember reading the initial boi's in the beginning of the book Unforgettable Fire and where each boy was headed BN (Before the Note).  The only studious one was Dave, Adam liked to party, Bono wanted to become a comedian, and Larry wanted to make his mom proud.  But they all had musical leanings and artistic aptitudes (and attitudes, ha!)  And as many are the possibilities otherwise, I have faith that U2 was meant to be.  

As for the McCormick brothers, if U2 were not here, would we be listening to them?   8)

Adam said he would probably be a gardener if he wasn't in U2.

I could see Larry as a Harley mechanic.
