1)

2) Summer Rain was the first song I recall learning to play start to finish, I noodled around with a bunch of others, New Years Day, Bad, etc.

3) Acoustic Stay although I usually don't play along with the DVD because I'm too lazy to bother tuning down 1/2 step.

4) Kinda-sorta, Bono has a vintage Gibson Hummingbird and I have a newer one ('02). I just got a setup done for it to make it easier to play and just can't put the thing down.

5) Yeah, never for a cover paying audience or open mike crowd, usually at a party or something where a boozy version of Desire is generally a crowd pleaser.

1. Probably
2. One, I think.Sounds great on acoustic guitar.
3. The Joshua tree . The song is Staring at the sun because it's an amazing song and there's a beautiful live acoustic version of that song which U2 performed in Rotterdam
4. No, I owe Fender DG4 sunburst. It's an acoustic guitar and it takes my breath away every time I see it.
