Pack Rat Larry

Hall of Fame’s chief curator chief curator Jim Henke about Larry ‘the hoard’ Mullen:

“I’ve found for example, that there’s usually one member of a band who is
a pack rat, or to put it another way, who has the collector’s mentality. For
example, in U2, drummer Larry Mullen Jr. is the collector. From the time U2
first formed (as the Larry Mullen Band) back in a Dublin high school, he has
been stockpiling everything from the first U2 T-shirt (now on exhibit at the
Hall of Fame) to posters, backstage passes, notes from band members, etc.
He virtually has a house full of U2 memorabilia.”
