"Adam became our manager and had cards printed up. For a while, Adam and Bono were certainly the two most vocal characters in the group, myself and Larry being a big younger.

- Edge on Adam
The name "Bono" comes from a hearing aid shop in Dublin that was named "Bona Vox" which is latin for "good voice".
