what they said
"I remember Anton [Corbijn] saying, 'Oh there's the Yoshua tree'. He couldn't pronounce the J. So we stood there having our photograph taken by the Yoshua tree. We wanted to laugh but Anton would get very upset if people laughed, or even smiled. It was all very funny, not that you'd know by the facial expressions on the album cover."
- Larry on the cover for The Joshua Tree
