Reg?

this is going to be my moment, but why is The Edge called Reg sometimes?
I thought this would be a good place to ask. as soon as I get home I'll post some Edgy-pics to make the thread legal

I don't recall the details, but I think somebody mistook Edge's name away back in the early days, and called him Reg. It stuck.

That's a good question
"Reg" seems to be used by "inner people"...

According to Flanagan's book (U2 At The End Of The World), "Reg" is the nickname his friends use for his other, more famous nickname.

There's a few occasions on the lovetown and JT tours where Bono introduces Edge (usually before the solo on Gloria) as Reggie the dog.

I have Lovetown rotterdam, and he does it there.

Hee. I first thought it was his fanfic name , but it seemed to appear a little to frequently to be just that.

Edge's nickname has been mutated a few times... So yes, Reg. Reggie The Dog. And during ZOOTV - at time - Hedge.
