"Most of the lyrics for Boy were written while on stage. They were written under improvised circumstances, while on stage, closest to the song. As soon as I sit down, the soon as I try to write and put a pen in my hand my head gets in the way and I start to write rubbish."
- Bono, 1981

"At the start of the U2360° Tour, the band weren’t planning to shoot the Rose Bowl. They wanted to do a shoot in Fez, a town in Morocco in a ‘riad’ – a type of Moroccan house built around an open 360 degree courtyard – and there would be 100- 200 invited people there to see it."
- Malcolm Gerrie, producer of the 360 Tour DVD
