"If I am preoccupied with other stuff before I go on stage, it’s not a good thing. Your emotional state before you go onstage can determine the show’s outcome, and it’s crucial to go on in the right state of mind to project confidence. I wish I could be more specific, but I just clear my head and focus."
- Adam, 2005

In 1999, a bag holding personal papers and a laptop computer containing lyrics for the ATYCLB album was taken from Bono's car. Bono offered a reward of £2,000 for the return of the computer. An Irish man returned the laptop after having bought it for £300 thinking it was from a reputable source. He realised it was Bono's when he saw a picture of the singer's child Elijah Bob on the screen, prompting him to contact U2's management.
