Larry Muller Jr. Net Worth $150 Million

Laurence Joseph Mullen was the middle child of Laurence Joseph Mullen Sr. and Maureen Muller. He has an older sister Cecilia and a younger sister Mary, but she passed away in 1973. Larry learned to play piano at the age of eight at the School of Music in Chatham Row. He then met Joe Bonnie at the age of nine, who taught him how to play the drums. However, his teacher soon died and his daughter Monica started giving lessons to Larry, but he decided to quit. In 1975, Larry suffered another tragedy, as his mother died in a car accident. Still, his father had a great influence on Larry and his playing, since he got him into the Artane Boys Band, a marching band, but that didn`t keep Larry satisfied for too long, and left the band.

He went to the Mount Temple Comprehensive School, where he put a notice on the board looking for musicians to form a band. Slowly new members were added, and with Paul “Bono” Hewson, David “The Edge” Evans and his brother Dik, Adam Clayton, and with the addition of Ivan McCormick and Peter Martin formed the Larry Mullen Band, but the name was soon changed to Deedback, and after McCormick and Martin left, switched to The Hype. They then changed it to U2, which has stayed to the present day, with formation Paul Bono Hewson, David The Edge Evans, Adam Clayton and Muller.

Their first album came out in 1980, several months after signing a recording contract with the Island Records label, entitled “Boy”. The album reached No. 63 on the US Billboard 200 chart, and was eventually certified platinum in USA, gold in Britain, and platinum in Canada, which only increased Larry`s net worth, but also encouraged the band to continue to work together. The following year they released their second album, “October”, and although it wasn`t quite as popular as their debut album, still it achieved platinum status in the USA. Larry’s net worth was well established.

The band`s third album “War” (1983) topped the UK charts and reached No. 12 on the US Billboard 200 chart, selling over nine million copies around the world, which increased Mullen`s net worth by a large margin. Their next album – “The Unforgettable Fire” (1984) repeated the same success, and achieved triple platinum status in the USA.

With their next album “The Joshua Tree” (1987), which topped the charts in USA, UK, and several other countries, the band`s dominance of the charts began, as every future album topped the US Billboard 200 chart, UK chart, and Irish Albums chart. “The Joshua Tree”, has sold 25 million copies, achieving diamond status in the USA, eight times platinum in Britain and diamond in Canada, which added a substantial amount to Larry`s net worth.

Albums such as “Rattle and Hum” (1988), “Achtung Baby” (1991), “Zooropa” (1993), “Pop” (1997), “All That You Can’t Leave Behind” (2000), “How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb” (2004), “No Line On The Horizon” (2009), and “Songs of Innocence” (2014) all sold in the millions, increasing further Larry`s net worth.

Larry has also tried himself as an actor, and so far has appeared in films “Man on the Train” (2011), starring Donald Sutherland, and “1,000 Times Good Night” (2013), which also contributed to his net worth.

As a part of the U2, Larry has won numerous prestigious awards, including 22 Grammys among many others.

Regarding his personal life, Larry has three children with his longtime girlfriend Ann Acheson; they have been together for over 30 years.

Also he is involved in numerous philanthropic activities, including Amnesty International among other organizations.
