‘I nearly quit U2 before we found fame’ says Bono
BONO has revealed that his religious convictions almost led him to quit U2 before finding stardom. Interviewed by veteran broadcaster Gay Byrne, pictured, for RTE programme The Meaning of Life , the Dubliner also spoke about being a member of a Christian group known as the Shalom Fellowship along with band-mates The Edge and Larry Mullen in the early 1980s.
After the group’s first album Boy was released in 1981, fellowship members persuaded the young musicians that their Christian beliefs were not consistent with a rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle.
