"I don't like music that leaves out the emotion, that truth that makes music great for me. I’m interested in people. Music should communicate what’s going on in a person's life, you're enriched by what's going on. Great music is like meeting somebody - you learn from them and if you don't, if they put up a veneer, a gloss, I don't want to hear that."
- Bono, 1983
