Where were you when you first heard U2? Was it in the late '70s, when they were called The Hype? Or how about at Live Aid in 1985, with a performance only Freddie Mercury could rival? Maybe it was in 2014, when their new album was uploaded onto iPhones worldwide. Truth is, the boys have stood the test of time.
The band formed as schoolboys in 1976, and have led a career spanning five decades. During this time, Bono has become one of the most recognizable front men of his generation. Ahead of his birthday, let's look back on Bono and U2.
