U2’s record producer Steve Lillywhite confesses he fears Gavin Friday in the second part of his recent interview with U2.com:
U2.Com: How much can you remember about the early days?
“It’s a bit like when people talk about the war being the best times of their lives, when really they weren’t. It was very bleak: Dublin in the late Seventies was not the vibrant, multicultural city that we have now.
I used to hang out with Adam a lot. We were the party boys. Larry and Bono and Edge were into their own thing. These very strange guys with make-up would come into the studio and never say ‘hi’.
They weren’t from the side of the street where you were taught the social niceties of life. I was scared stiff of Gavin Friday, and still am.”
