Edge Quotes

HI! I've seen threads for Bono and Adam quotes but not Edge quotes. I think he's hilarious. So please share you Edgey quotes here.

My favourite has to be:

Cool Name: The Edge
Uncool Name: Sting

The look of sheer innocence on his face afterward cracks me up every time.

That was priceless! I loved his admission to sucking at guitar hero too. Great topic!

Can anyone find the exact wording of the one where he's talking about adjusting to life at home after a tour, and sort of feeling 'in the way' at home. He says something like "I just wander around the house looking for things that need doing, like washing the dishes or painting the cat."

"What ever you do, do not get into a car with Bono. He's not great at the old driving."
Edge on the dangers of a ride with Bono, 2001

does this count? :

His gaze drifts off into the air, mentally subdividing God-knows-what complex equation. It turns out he's wondering if right now Larry is finding the fan letter Edge left lying conspicuously in the dressing room. The letter tells Edge that he is 'the best-looking member of U2. Bono has a big nose and Larry looks like an inflatable doll.' Edge got the note in Australia and he plans to keep leaving it out until Larry notices it. 'Bass players attract the weirdest fans,' Edge says. 'I tend to get the bespectacled MIT students. Bono gets the poets. And Larry, unfortunately, gets the girls.' Edge sighs and repeats the old saw: 'We should have gotten a Ringo.' The Beautiful Boy himself enters the cafeteria, showing no signs of having yet seen himself described as inflatable. Edge gets up to collect his mash note for next time. (Bill Flannagan, U2 at the End of the World)

one of my favorites is from a VH1 special he and Larry did, I think around the Elevation tour. I can't remember what it was for. He says something like

"rock and roll...guitars, bass, drums, voice at high volume that's me....."

The was a little head nod he does to the camera, if I'm remembering that correctly. It used to be my signature here long ago when I first signed up.....

Embarrassing moment! My room overlooks the park and yesterday during the afternoon
I'd opened up all the blinds and taken back the curtains so I could look out over the park.
Come nightfall, I was grooving to some rap record in my room, bopping around the room
for maybe half an hour. I don't know what I was doing, just messing around...and at one
stage I looked out of the window and there were about 200 people looking up, clapping,
applauding my dancing. That was funny." -August 21st, 1992 @ The Four Seasons Hotel

"We are family. Bono and I bought a house together ten years ago in the south of France and Adam and Larry ended up buying in the same area, partly a practical thing, so we can work, but partly because we want to hang out together. I go to parties with these guys, "he points around the cabin," and I end up sitting in the corner talking to them. It´s weird. It´s actually weird. It´s the weirdest thing. I have other best friends too - I´m not saying they´re my only friends, but they are my best friends." by Edge - 2005
