"I was studying in college overseas in Berlin (East) in 89, hearing rumors U2 was in Hansa Studios making a new album, heard some of the Salome tracks from the a person selling bootlegs at a local flea market, such a cool moment to be in the same place as U2. Will always hold Berlin moments dear to myself."
"Then Bono arrived, and he meant to play the guitar, but he couldn't play very well, so he started to sing. He couldn't do that either. But he was such a charismatic character that he was in the band anyway, as soon as he arrived. I was in charge for the first five minutes, but as soon as Bono got there, I was out of a job."
- Larry Mullen jr, 1987
