Born in 31st October 1961, Lawrence Joseph "Larry" Mullen Jnr is the drummer for the rock band U2.

Larry was born in the Artane area of Dublin Ireland, and in 1971 he became the pupil of the best drummer in Ireland Joe Bonnie. He has three children and lives with his partner Ann Acheson.

Larry is characterised by his military-style drumming, one of the best examples being in the U2 song, "Sunday Bloody Sunday". He loves Harley Davidson motorcycles and owns the copyright license to print Harley Davidson t-shirts.

Despite the fame U2 has built up around the world, the humble drummer prefers to remain out of the limelight and is content to remain off the center stage during press conferences and interviews.
