"It was very difficult for the band to see me in certain company. It was excruciating. But they gave me their blessing. They believed it was the right thing to do, to get certain things across the line. I do remember Edge very early on saying, never invite Senator Jessy Helms to a U2 show. I have, and he came with his wife. Edge repented him for the way he spoke about aids publicly. And there's a picture of Edge dodging him in the backstage area. But you don't have to agree with everyone and everything if the one thing you agree upon is important enough."
- Bono, 2022

The photograph made by Anton Corbijn for The Unforgettable Fire album cover was basically copped from somebody else's photograph (a picture of Moydrum Castle). It ended up in costing U2 some money.
