The story starts with Larry, who was looking to start a band. Then Adam came, but I got confused when they started talking about David and Paul. I was trying to read kinda fast and lots of people were being introduced. Eventually, I figured out that David played the part of the Edge and Paul played the part of Bono.
What immediate hit was how they are like every other Act that made it big. Luck. Randomness. Hard-work. Determination.
They were not really that good. Then some random event made them popular locally and they had gigs, the 10000 hours of practice that they needed, more random luck, lots of people who believed in them and worked hard to make them bigger.
