Personal Quote:

There are things I've said that maybe made Bono worse and more like the showman, me saying from the word 'go' that I thought he was a buffoon. He obviously isn't a buffoon. He's a clever bloke and he's written some good tunes - nothing with any profundity, I don't think - but some decent melodies. See more »


He has cited Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, Leonard Cohen, The Doors and David Bowie as his biggest influences. See more »
