what they said
"We always talk about the collective ego of U2; that we have allowed our individual egos to be subsumed into the band ego, and so if the action helps the band, no matter who's sort of getting the credit or who's doing the work or whatever, it doesn't really matter as long as the U2 collective wins: then we all win. That's basically how it works, but that's an easy thing to say, actually, to make it happen is very challenging at times."
