Up until 1987 the band probably did not make very much money, in fact 1983 was the first year they made money(enough to buy a house for each of themselves). But after the Joshua Tree was released, there was an explosion in sales worldwide of the Joshua Tree and their back catalog at the time. It was enough of a sales explosion in addition to the tour revenue's that by the end of 1987, the members of U2 had more than enough money to live lavishly without being in the band again for the rest of their lives.

some people really do talk out of their arse! if U2 was in it for the money they would of given up years ago! As if they really need to make a few more millions! It sounds like you are wobbling as a fan, how long have you been a fan for? for me I celebrate 20 years as a fan in 2003
if you are gonna suggest U2 are fake, fair enough, but you might as well suggest that things we hear and read in the news is fake! like Sept 11 never happened, the two world wars didn't happen

To even suggest U2 could be fake, you should look elsewhere and enjoy some "fake" manufactured band just to ease your concience, at least you will know they are fake for real!

They began this crusade when they "were 15, 16....Larry was 14, still is". There are times when a celebraty, no matter who they are, will have their words and the meanings they had behind them taken out of context. They've been true to themselves. PopMart was the result of pressure!...And, they said they'll never do that again, and I believe that they won't. I don't think any of their albums have come on the shirttails of the one prior to it. Nobody truly knows if they ARE or ARE NOT fake except those close to them. However, I haven't seen any indication of this.....and fact, I keep seeing more reasons to believe that they are really TRUE.
Well said!

(I hadn't been joking when I told him i could talk the whole way home about this band, and then some!!) His basic gripe was that Zoo/ Pop was the EASY route to take after AB.. sonicallly similar and stuff, which is so odd b/c i've never come across that opinion before.
