"I hardly saw my wife Ali, my wife, for a year. 1986 was an incredibly bad year for me. It's almost impossible to be married and be in a band on the road- but Ali is able to make it work. Then you tell the press that she is her own person and very smart and not some dolly girl and that she doesn't take any shit from me, and they read it into a marital breakdown. And I think, 'Well, what sort of women are they married to?'"
- Bono, 1987
