"Los Angeles was a litany of crises, one problem after another with the record, the movie, with life. I started to feel really homesick. There was nowhere to go, the place shuts at nine o'clock. I borrowed some motorcycles and rode around L.A. on my downtime. I just couldn't cope, I was desperate to leave LA."
- Larry on working in Los Angeles for the recordings of Rattle and Hum

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.
