"When we started it was hard to get the Edge to play aggressively. He is a gentleman and he plays guitar like a gentleman."
- Bono on The Edge, February 1982
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.
