"I went out on to the corner and just continued to look around. My black, fake-fur coat was turning white with snow as a gentleman pulled up beside me in a car and offered to have sex with me."
- Bono on his first New York experience
did you know
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.
