"The bigness of U2 had become a distraction. It put us in a position where we really didn't have to do anything anymore. We were that successful. We could have either split up or poured all of our confusion into a different kind of music. Achtung Baby is the sound of a band fighting for its musical life."
- Larry, 1992
