Steve Lillywhite on Producing U2's 'War'

U2's third album, <em>War</em>, was the band's most focused and powerful record yet.
U2's third album, War, was the band's most focused and powerful record yet.

In the span of three years, U2 delivered a one-two-three punch: Boy, October, and 1983's War. War begins with the legendary call to arms "Sunday Bloody Sunday." Its machine-gun guitar rhythms and Bono's passionate vocals set the tone for an album that took no prisoners. In an interview with host David Dye, War's original producer, Steve Lillywhite, talks about the creation of the landmark album.
