"I don’t think there’s any chance of the future drying up! I’ve been working on new stuff in parallel that's much more vital and requires a U2 band sound to fulfil it.

But I’m absolutely convinced that the guitar is going to be front and centre within mainstream music culture in a year or two, and I want to be part of that revival."
