"When I started managing the band, Adam and I smoked but none of the other three did. Now they all smoke except for Adam and me. Bono came to tobacco late in life. I remember saying to him, 'I can't believe you've started something. Aren't you worried that you'll damage your voice?' He said, 'That's the problem, I like what it's doing to my voice.'"
