"The big question was whether it was having an impact on the band's music? The answer was a resounding no. Was it having an impact on the way the band was functioning outside the music?

'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.
