Best Quotes (In my opinion)
What irritates the others about you ?
Bono: My temper.
Adam: I'm slow.
Edge: I spend to long on the computer.
Larry: I'm the "negative" one.
Beautiful Day has some quintessential Edge guitar on it...
Larry: There were some arguments whether it was too backward-looking, whether it was like "Classic Coke". There we were in the studio, Edge doing his stuff and us going, "But it sounds so Edge-like!" But of course it does, that's what he does! He invented it! He invented it and we're embarrased about it because we don't want him to use it! Thank God we got over that rubbish.
I'm sure I heard Adam refer to Larry once as "the wife"...
Adam: Well, yes. When I look at the balance of relationships in the band, it looks like that. In the songwriting partnership, of Bono and Edge, I feel that Edge is the man and Bono is the woman, and in the Rhythm section, Larry is without a doubt the man. He wouldn't have it any other way, and neither would I.
What message do you have for someone reading this before the show?
Bono: Do not fasten your seatbelt. We are about to get airborne.
Where is the PopMart lemon now?
Edge: Our manager Paul McGuiness has been handling the Lemon issue. At one point, I believe he was trying to sell it to Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. That would have been perfect. As a vehicle it h as limitations: it probably wouldn't get you to work and back, but it make someone a fantastic cocktail bar.
Do you tackle each other over mistakes?Are there grim post-gig post-mortems?
Edge: We don't care about mistakes. The worst crime would be not being "in it". There's a spell, and you can fall out of it for a minute or two and think that everyone in the band knows when that has happened to someone. For a U2 show to connect, with the numbers of people that we play to, then everyone's got to be on form, everyone's got to be present. You don't have to be having the best show of your life, but you can't be thinking about what you're going to order for breakfast
There's a freshness to All That You Can't Leave Behind that seems to come from...
Larry: ...from four people being in a room and being U2. Yes, that was a bit of a shock to the system. We'd become so used to Howie B coming in, and I think that it's been a while since we were in a room together as a band. It is the most important thing about this record. The thing that makes this record sound the way it sounds is because it's played.
