"I used to write words separate from U2. I believed that rock'n'roll wasn't the place for words. I didn't really begin spending a lot of time on lyrics until halfway into Eighties."
Starting life as two seperate demos, 'Ultra Violet' and '69', later evolving into 'Lady With The Spinning Head', The Edge improvised a riff that the rest of the band worked with. With said riff, 'One' was born, ultimately changing the outlook of the sessions and more importantly, keeping the band together.
