"I went to a professional and said to the hairdresser: 'Dye my hair blond but make it look like I did it myself.' He was very confused: 'You're paying me a lot of money to dye your hair but want it to look like you had done it yourself?' 'Exactly,' I said, 'make it look real bad.'"

In 1999, a bag holding personal papers and a laptop computer containing lyrics for the ATYCLB album was taken from Bono's car. Bono offered a reward of £2,000 for the return of the computer. An Irish man returned the laptop after having bought it for £300 thinking it was from a reputable source. He realised it was Bono's when he saw a picture of the singer's child Elijah Bob on the screen, prompting him to contact U2's management.
