Neil finally realises that he is no longer seeking success for himself. He owes it to his brother to succeed to make up for denying him his place in U2. A secret that is bound to come to light sooner or later...
Based on Neil McCormick’s autobiography, I Was Bono’s Doppelgänger is a funny, raucous, heartbreaking celebration of brotherly love and the glory of failure, set to a sing‐a‐long 70’s and 80’s soundtrack. But most of all it is a valuable lesson in how not to become a rock star.
