"We are far better at getting Amnesty International's message across in music than press conferences. We're just good at very noisy rock 'n' roll." — Bono

R.I.P. Larry Mullen, Sr.


This is the kind of news we hate to report: Larry's dad, Larry Mullen Sr., passed away Sunday at Bons Secours Hospital in Dublin. He was 92. The death notice doesn't list a cause. It says that donations, if desired, may be made to St. Francis Hospital in Raheny.

You may recall that Bono lost his dad in 2001 during the Elevation tour and Adam lost his mom shortly after the 360 tour ended. Edge's mom died most recently, in the summer of 2012.

On behalf of the entire @U2 staff, including a few who also lost our dads recently, I'd like to extend our deepest sympathies to Larry and the entire Mullen family during this difficult time. You all will be in our prayers and thoughts.

UPDATE: Fans in our forum are leaving messages of support for Larry and his family. Feel free to join them if you're so inclined.
