Adam on the writing process: "Nowadays, Edge tends to do his homework and discipline some chord sequences. Then, as a group, we find an interpretation, a unique way they fit together."
Adam: "'Walk On' was two songs that both had great chords but weren't great songs. We sewed them together."
Edge on performing under influences: "We'd been told that all bands are out of it on stage and so we tried that once in about 1977. And it was such an unmitigated disaster that we vowed at that point that we'd never do it again."
Bono: "I think that in U2, there are moods or feelings that no one else has done before. And I think that finally, that is the most important thing, which is to find something that's your own color, and unique."
The Edge: "When it came to the 90's work, we were being more experimental and we got more interested in the abuse of technology -- seeing what happens when you push something to the point where it's almost about to break."

Edge on the album, Zooropa: "It's a record I really love, because it does have a certain spontaneity, a certain sense of ideas left in their raw form."
Edge: "U2's not great and I don't think Achtung Baby's a good name either."
Edge on the album Pop: "By the end of the album we'd kind of taken the band as far in one direction as we could."
Adam: "For us there`s U2 music, and then there's everything else."
Bono: "Right now there is so much fear about the future, people losing their jobs, people getting angry... but Get On Your Boots opens with the line 'The future needs a big kiss' and I hope that our optimism as a band is the right tone for now, it is a defiant tone..."
