Who is the leader of U2?
« on: May 04, 2009, 05:12:25 PM »
Who do you think really is in charge of U2?  who is the one that decides what they do?  i know its a group effort, but who do you think has more of a say?

I think Bono talks the most, Edge does the most, Adam goes along with whatever happens and Larry doesn't change his mind once it's made up. Now that sounds totally irrelevant, doesn't it?

I believe its a group effort with everything. But I think Larry and Adam have alot more say than people think. Especially Larry. I really believe that he keeps them grounded. IMO.

I think Bono does a lot of leading, but that Larry holds everything together. He's the glue, so to speak. So I guess it's between the two of them in my opinion.

I think Edge's opinions are more important than the fans realize! ;)

It depends on which aspect we are discussing
In my opinion:
The Edge is the main leader in the studio
Larry is the glue that keeps everything together and if he absolutely say no to something, the band will not do it. I think so even more since POP
Bono is the public frontman and the leader onstage
Adam hmmm maybe art and artwork, I'm not sure

I agree with this. Maybe that's why they've been known to (occasionally!) clash  ;D

I'd say Adam is the most laid back of the four in the studio. The other three might hussle and bussle and debate. Adam would work on whatever comes out of the hussle and bussle. Although Bono's the front man, I'd say larry'd be the most assertive. If any of them cam up with a bad idea, it'd be Larry who'd be the first to stand up and tell them where to go I'd imagine.

I am an Adam girl, but I think that Larry is the "leader" of the band.  He strikes me as the kind of person that does not say a lot, but when he speaks, people listen.
