"We are family. Bono and I bought a house together ten years ago in the south of France and Adam and Larry ended up buying in the same area, partly a practical thing, so we can work, but partly because we want to hang out together. I go to parties with these guys, and I end up sitting in the corner talking to them. It's weird. It's actually weird. It's the weirdest thing. I have other best friends too - I'm not saying they're my only friends, but they are my best friends."
- The Edge, 2005
