BEST OF ’87/’88: The Joshua Tree, one of U2's most powerful, compelling albums, was released in 1987 and has thus far yielded two Top 10 singles, making it U2's most colossal record yet. PROFILE: It's doubtful that singer Bono, guitarist The Edge, and bassist Adam Clayton had total world domination on their minds when they answered a notice that drummer Lawrence Mullen, Jr. pinned on the billboard at Dublin's Mount Temple school in 1978.
