"Larry says that he doesn't want to leave the stage just to come back two minutes later, he's a drummer and they are practical, he says it's more efficient to just stay onstage. Edge doesn't care what we do and Adam hasn't even noticed that we've left the stage and me, I'm the singer and I do whatever you want me to, I just want you to love me."
- Bono, Copenhagen, 2001
