"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
