Does Edge know funk?

I had a guy tell me once that Edge was a decent funk guitar player. He said there was a little Parliament Funkadelic to the Edge. I've heard many compliments thrown Edge's way over the years, but this one was unique. I can see a little funk prowess here and there, but I never considered Edge to be an heir of George Clinton. What do u guys think?

Edge knows everything!

Even if he doesn't play "funk" per se, I see a funk sensibility in his live improvisations. He's not afraid to be different, to take risks.

I'm sure the Edge has a degree in all kinds of music. I'd like to see him do a Chili Peppers cover.

hahaha, although it might be a little hard for Adam to help him out with some of Flea's bass parts

But he's not the funky chicken himself, Adam Clayton.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

mysterious ways is full of it too.
