"I'm a very good member of U2. I'm not even sure I'm the best drummer in U2, but that doesn't really bother me. I'm interested in being inventive and creative and that's not necessarily about chops."

'40' from the War album almost was never recorded. The band (minus Adam Clayton who had left the studio) had gone over their booked studio time, but convinced the studio manager to let them record '40'. The Edge plays both electric and bass guitar on the song. It was a last addition to the album, but has closed many shows over the decades.
