It looks like U2 drummer Larry Mullen, Jr. had the same reaction that we did when we heard about Bono and The Edge’s Spider-Man musical. He told STV Entertainment, “I’m not convinced about that. I think it’s a Bono and Edge project and I think that’s really valuable and really good. But I wouldn’t have chosen ‘Spider-Man’ as my theatrical debut.”
This is certainly not the first time Mullen has publicly disagreed with other members of U2. Late last year, Mullen spoke out about his discomfort with seeing Bono meeting with former British PM Tony Blair and former U.S. President George Bush. He even added, “Do I think George Bush is a war criminal? Probably.” It’s no wonder we don’t usually see Mullen doing interviews with his bandmates.
