Bono - U2 Hated Living With Bono

Bono "drove mad" his U2 bandmates when they lived together.

Three of the 'One' hitmakers - the singer, Larry Mullen Jr. And Adam Clayton - shared a house in Los Angeles in 1987 and while they had fun in the US the rest of the group admit it was "very hard" being around the frontman all the time.

Adam said: "It was a mad house. I think Bono drove us mad. It's very hard to live with Bono.

"It was a house that was due to be demolished and was built in blocks around a pool. We each had a bedroom and living area; it was basically a commune. Bono would find all these things to do late at night, all these underground clubs."

Only guitarist The Edge opted not to live with the band and he was relieved to have a "refuge" away from the group where he could work.

He told Q magazine: "It was a strange time for me - things weren't going great at home.

"Then up the road, the others... People were really enjoying the fact they were in a rock band that was a big success. It was like being in a candy store - a lot of partying, a relatively hedonistic time. It was more of a refuge for me, I was throwing myself into work."
