|U2 - The Rolling Stone Files
The story of U2 is a dramatic one, and nowhere is that more apparent than in the pages of Rolling Stone, which has covered the band since its inception.
Part of the uniqueness of this volume is the diversity of opinion found throughout the interviews and articles, allowing the reader a much broader perspective than a traditional biography could provide. With the collaboration of U2 expert Elysa Gardner and the magazine's top editors and writers, U2:The Rolling Stone Files provides everything U2 fans want to know and everything Rolling Stone has to offer.
|U2 - At The End Of The World
U2 at the end of the world is the strange, intimate and very funny story of the biggest rock band's biggest tour, a two-year extravaganza that took U2 around the planet and dropped them at a cultural intersection where the most powerful people in art, politics, film, fashion, business and rock & roll all throw their arms around each other and pose for photographs.
Here is U2 conferring with Bill Clinton and Bill Burroughs, recording with Frank Sinatra, partying with Naomi Campbell, philosophizing with Salman Rushdie, jamming with Bob Dylan. Here is U2 trying to get a Red Cross flight into Sarajevo, visiting Tokyo strip clubs, joining a Greenpeace action on the Irish Sea, being mobbed in Mexico, attacking neo-Nazis in Berlin, and attending the inauguration of the US President.
Here is U2 at home writing songs, in the studio recording, and on the set of making movies. And here is the most honest portrait ever of the most popular rock band of the 1980s and 1990s, by the author to whom U2 have given complete access with no restrictions or controls.
|A Conspiracy Of Hope
U2 have proven with phenomenal success that where there is wilful intelligence, a willingness to experiment and to pick up on new ideas, there is great rock music.
It was as much their closeness as friends as any musical ambition which drew U2 together initially, a factor which engendered a distinct voice of their own as they tackled universal themes close to their hearts. And yet as they espoused a creed of tolerance in public, they also recognized that they had no magic answers to give as they wrestled with their own personal demons.
In A Conspiracy Of Hope U2 now have more than just a simple linear biography. The book traces the prevailing conditions which shaped their music at each stage and analyses some of the inherent contradictions and frictions which motivates their songwriting. Featuring exhaustive and extensive interview material, the book chronicles U2's journey to date in a musical, political and social context, giving a wider vision of the work the band have done and what they have yet to do. For a band that's dangerous because it's honest, there's always more work to do.
