Some 23 years after it was stolen, a briefcase full of notes and lyrics that were intended for U2's album October has been returned. Calling it an "act of grace," front-man Bono announced Wednesday that the notes were returned by a woman who found them in the attic of a rental home in Tacoma, Wash., in 1981. She claims she didn't realize they were stolen until years later, and then she didn't know how to get in touch with the band or Google the characters U and 2. Bono and Co. were forced to rewrite all of the October lyrics in what they describe as the worst recording experience of their life.
