Larry Mullen Jr – my U2 A to Z

I love Larry Mullen Jr, U2’s drummer. He is my favorite drummer, and my second favorite man – a close second behind Elvis. And ironically Larry is a huge Elvis fan and even named his son Aaron Elvis. I have been a U2 fan for 25 years. I was a freshman in high school when The Joshua Tree was…

Larry Mullen is The Man on the Train

In his 50th year, Larry Mullen Jr makes his acting debut in the remake of The Man on the Train. Not only is this his acting debut, it is the starring role – along with Donald Sutherland. Larry also produced the movie and composed the original score. It would have been perfect to watch The…

Larry Sings in Oakland! U2 360 6.7.11

The U2 360 show in Oakland had the same set list as the previous three shows in the US, but was a little different. First, the baseball infield was fenced off, so the GA area was smaller – as was the inner circle behind the stage. Second, there were two opening bands, so U2 didn’t…
