I've always wondered why he doesn't get more time "on air" as it were. His voice is sometimes almost indistinguishable from Bono's anyway.

The theremin is the COOLEST. INSTRUMENT. EVER.

Per Wiki: "... it is unique in that it was the first musical instrument designed to be played without being touched. The controlling section generally consists of two metal antennas to sense the relative position of the player's hands."

I would love to see Edge step up to the mic more often... but like Ax's wish for One to never be played again, it probably ain't gonna happen.

I was enjoying his backing vocals on LNOE today...


Roll on the Edge solo project... with words this time!

Well, whatever your least favourite U2 song is, they play it. TWICE.

I agree. I'd love to see him get some mic time on the next tour.

Though what I most wish I'd seen was his birthday gig on 8 August 1993 in Glasgow, when Bono made him do Lost Highway, a song he barely knew!
