"There are so many artists on this list that have taught me so much about art and a good few about life. Part of your art was how you were going to live your life, and a refusal to be undignified in the spotlight. I couldn’t follow you there but I at least sought meaning in my mistakes rather than just a playground… though now that I think about it… I did that too."
- Bono to Bruce Springsteen, 2020

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.
