I have just finished reading "Killing Bono" by Neil McCormick, and wish to recommend it to the forum. It is the story of the author and his teenage fantasies and ambitions to become a world renowned rock star, and how he battled with the music industry to fulfill those dreams. And oh, by the way, two of his classmates are Bono and the Edge, and that part of his story that intertwines with their's is essential reading for the U2 fans amongst you. The book is written with wit and includes a liberal sprinkling of tales of U2 and the '80s music scene in Dublin and London. Even if you're not a fan of U2, the author's angle on the music industry is quite rewarding. And if you're one of those people who despises Bono, it just might make you reconsider. By the way, "Killing Bono" is the US title. If memory serves, the UK title is "I Was Bono's Doppelganger".
