U2’s Larry Mullen Jr. often doesn’t get a lot of attention, but considering he’s the one who started U2 back in 1976 by posting a notice on the bulletin board of Mount Temple Comprehensive School, he certainly deserves a lot more.

Check out this clip of Larry and Bono sitting down for an interview on The Late Show with David Letterman.  Bono may get a lot of attention for being the frontman, but there is no mistake in who the leader of that band is if you pay attention to the interview.

Bonus:  We get to see how delightfully cheeky Larry is and hear about how Bono passed on in Frank Sinatra’s home movie theater.

Rock stars:  They’re just like us, aren’t they?!

Bono and Larry Mullen talking about the album Pop, touring with a giant lemon, Bono getting kicked out of the band, their friendship with Frank Sinatra and how rock has become so boring.
