Bono says U2 came “very” close to breaking up during the studio sessions while making 1991′s Achtung Baby. On a scale of one to 10, how close did they come to splitting up? Bono says, ‘Nine”. The Edge says, “What was really at stake was the end of the trust that bound the boys together. It was pretty close.”
Bono says, England’s Q magazine had commissioned an entire covers album of Achtung Baby songs, featuring Jack White covering Love Is Blindness, Depeche Mode doing You’re So Cruel, Patti Smith’s rendition of Until The End of The World and Damien Race covering One.
U2’s documentary is called From The Sky Down and showed on TIFF’s opening night in September.
