"I remember being stopped once. I was driving a vintage 1963 Chevy and I was pulled over by the cops. They said, 'Have you got any ID?'. I said, 'I've no ID'. They said, 'Anything? You must have something on you.' So I pulled out a picture of myself and Bob Dylan. It was like: 'Sure, go ahead, buddy'. Bob might as well have been the mayor."

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.
