Losing your pick during a performance sucks big time
I did that once, I was playing a really fast riff on one string and my pick flew about ten feet into the people in front of me. I had to keep going
I gotta say, Edge was kinda sexy when he was throwing his little tantrum

And here I thought he was doing his impression of Pete Townsend

I remember hearing that Edge was basically upset because he thought they'd made a mess of the song, and he was quite embarrassed at the whole thing later on. My source, and I'll be damned if I remember who it was, this was four years ago, also claimed it was the only time Edge had smashed a guitar. Edge and Pete Townshend are good friends with alot of mutual respect, but no one would get them mixed up.

And if you watch the video, you can see the colors of his Rik changing from the sunburst to black. The sunburst is the one that he threw down and kicked. The black one was played after that.
I didn't know that. Damn, my image of that is ruined now
LOL just kidding. Thanks for pointing that out. I hadn't really payed attention to the guitar during that part....other than it being kicked, that is. It was still kinda cute.

Correct me if i'm wrong but on the Live in Boston dvd wasn't there this part where they were showing the making elevation live and there was this part where Edge was visibly angry and screaming at Larry? This was somewhere just before the part where the guy says "... fucking 20 kilowatts of light..."(he was referring to Bono up against the lights at the end of "The Fly")
