Alter-Egos or Distant Cousins to U2?

Off the top of my head here's what I have:

Feedback
The Hype
The Dalton Brothers
Band Aid
Automatic Baby


Does anyone know other names of bands that featured at least two U2 members?

Cheers,

J

- The Virgin Prunes (in its earliest incarnation they also employed The Edge and Larry, IIRC)
- Passengers

Thanks so much for the information. Does anyone know anything else? What was the name of that boy's band Larry was a member of when he was in school before the U2 days? Also, what's the name of the group of all-stars who did What's Going On? What about the ones who did Perfect Day? What did these alliances call themselves?

Cheers,

J

IIRC, the marching band Larry drummed in was called the Artane Boys Band.
The alliance that did What's Going On is credited both as All Star Tribute (at the spine of the CD case) and as Artists Against AIDS Worldwide. Bono is the only member of U2 performing on the main version, although The Edge did help out on the London Version (which is basically a duet between Bono and Chris Martin from Coldplay).
Bono was also the only U2 member to perform on the Perfect Day single. This single is just credited to Various Artists.

C ya!

There's Artists Against Apartheid, who did "Sun City," but I think that only involved Bono, not any other U2 members.

Was any member of U2 ever involved in the Million Dollar Band?
