Bono, on art

"I kinda like being in the controversy. In the tension. there is this great tradition of worship but music that expresses life and wrestles tradition to the ground is absent. I want my music to do something. something positive in a negative world. I want to own up to my earthly desires and struggles. The key to art is truth... know the truth and the truth will set you free. I start my day as a writer this way. Truth is key, if not my art is a lie...."
- Bono
