U2 singer and guitarist admits he doesn’t like the band’s name or hearing his voice
“In our minds, U2 was like the U-boat, the spy plane. It was futuristic,” Bono explained in the interview, admitting that he still “doesn’t like the name.” “Paul McGuiness, our first manager, was the one who said, ‘It’s a great name! It will look good on t-shirts! A letter and a number,’” he recalled.
But it’s not just the band’s name that makes him uncomfortable. In addition, the vocalist doesn’t like to hear his own voice: “If I’m in the car and start playing one of our songs, I even blush.” Despite this, the artist stresses that the rest of the band “is great”.
Bono also shared an event from the 1980s. According to him, British singer Robert Palmer even said to U2 bassist Adam Clayton: “For God’s sake, can you tell your singer to calm down a bit? For his own good and for those who have to listen to him.”
