Who needs an Edge appreciation thread when we can have a Gibson Explorer appreciation thread?

No, he's just the edge of one. We need to appreciate the whole, not just the edge, of the Gibson Explorer.

Oooh, I'm so lametastically witty.

about Edge... he's not my favorite guitar player, he isn't even close to that, but he's the perfect man for u2 and he developed an unique sound, a trademark sound. I wish he could be more on the front line these days, instead of Bono...

That makes two of us. It would be nice to see Edge take a more prominent role in the band, maybe sing lead on a few more of the songs. I think he has a fantastic voice. It would be interesting to see him and Bono alternate the vocals a bit more. It would also be interesting to see him getting more involved in the lyrics. It would never happen, but we can dream, can't we?

Perhaps he could learn how to actually play an instrument?

Yeah I'm sure I heard that's why he stopped playing it live because it was too difficult to play at times.

I appreciate the guitar player that gave so much of U2's sound, and the vocal wingman to Bono.

lame indeed, but the lameness of it all made me laugh anyway

there's a reason I always wanted a Gibson Explorer





yeah I love The Edge. the ending to Ground Beneath Her Feet...gotta give him mad propz for that; it's absolutely beautiful. and Achtung Baby, that whole album is just full of great guitarwork.

wait, am I just stating the obvious here?
