"How can you claim to be uncomfortable with public attention and then spend your life playing in a rock band? There are some things about a drummer that I have never figured out. This is a man who would sing 'Dirty Old Town' and other Irish drinking songs a capella nightly in front of 50,000 people and then tell you he doesn't like attention."
- Bono on Larry

'40' from the War album almost was never recorded. The band (minus Adam Clayton who had left the studio) had gone over their booked studio time, but convinced the studio manager to let them record '40'. The Edge plays both electric and bass guitar on the song. It was a last addition to the album, but has closed many shows over the decades.
