"I want U2 to be a band that takes risks. I hate this idea of U2 as a nice safe band. The rock rebel thing is very phony."

'40' from the War album almost was never recorded. The band (minus Adam Clayton who had left the studio) had gone over their booked studio time, but convinced the studio manager to let them record '40'. It has closed many show since. The Edge plays both electric and bass guitar on the song.
