"Success to us was like the big bad wolf, I couldn’t believe I was getting paid for doing this thing that I’d do. I had to do it, and I’d do it for free, and we just didn’t know what to do with it. And then in the end, we were getting a lot for it. So from where I was coming from, and the way I was brought up, I wasn’t quite prepared for it, and all the shit that comes with it. I would have been a socialist in the way that I was brought up, my father voted Labour, and…we turned success into the big bad wolf."
- Bono, 1992
