Request: Band Members Playing Other Instruments

Please forgive me if a similar thread has been posted before.

Anyone have any pictures of the band members playing instruments that aren't
their traditional ones?, i.e: Bono playing the drums, Edge playing a saxophone, Larry playing piano.
I know a few of these exist (probably not Edge on sax)

My brain doesn't quite register Adam and Edge switching instruments for "40." It's that awesome.

For starters, here's what (I believe) is a pic of Bono playing piano a la Matt Bellamy. He's at the top right of the picture:

I've got some I could post. Do you want Edge on piano, because of course there are lots of those, and it is sort of his instrument I suppose. And I always love that pic you posted above.

Hey Bonocomet these are all brilliant! I especially love Bono smiling
behind the drums and the GIFs of him playing, he looks so happy.

It looks like Larry is about to bust out rapping in those pictures.
With some work, he could be a dead-ringer for Billy Idol.

I'd love to hear Bono's drumming now that I've seen it.

I'm sure there is. I used to have a song labeled Bono on drums/Larry vocals, but now I can't find it.
