"I remember the tours around 1984, thinking 'Why are we playing say, 3 nights in Lyon but only one in Marseille?' and it turned out to be there'd be a really great restaurant in Lyon and not in Marseille. Something Paul McGuinness and Ian Flooks arranged."
'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'. It has closed many show since. The Edge plays both electric and bass guitar on the song.
