Is Edge embarrassed by his baldness?

I've long been curious about this subject and am hoping someone can help me. In the last 10 years or so, I've very rarely seen Edge without a hat or beanie and was wondering if he is embarrassed by his 'lack of hair.' Does anyone know if he is? Or does he just like wearing headgear?!

I think he's embarassed. Have you seen the picture taken in August at Bob Hewson's funeral? He has no hat and I am not surprised he is embarassed -- very little hair, but he is still gorgeous.

I don't think he's embarassed at all. I think it's become such a trademark for him to wear hats all the time that he's never seen without them now.

I don't think he should be embarassed. I think men with thinning hair is a very sexy trait. Don't get me wrong, I don't dig comb-over's or anything like that, but on someone as sexy as edge-who's lookin at the hair!? (or lack thereof)!

I kind of think of his hat as his trademark, sort of like Bono's sunglasses. Bono is rarely seen without his glasses as Edge is without his hat. I've also noticed that a lot of other musicians have been wearing beanies, maybe he has started a trend!

I sure hope not.

I saw that quote on a T shirt once. I do believe there is quite a bit of truth to it

I don't think he is.
I think he should stop wearing hats and beanies and just just shave it all off and grow some kick ass sideburns.

To seriously answer the question tho...doesn't ANYONE remember POP? Sure there was the cowboy hat, but there are plenty of shots of hatless Edge...looking very cool, comfortable and stylish.

Speaking as someone who as they grow older is starting to become a bit follicly (sp?) challenged (that bald spot on the back of your head can make it chilly! ) I can tell you that you go through a couple of phases with it and I'am sure Edge did also.

At first it is a shock and you ARE embarrassed by it but you come to terms with it typically. I'am sure it was worse for Edge as he was and is out in the spotlight where millions of people see you and notice the change.

I DO know from first hand observation that Edge likes to keep the cap on almost all the time. I was at the 8-15-92 Chicago Outside Broadcast show. Bono brought two very exuberant girls on stage during Tryin To Throw Your Arms. When Edge came down the catwalk one of them snatched his burglar cap off. I was right by the ramp and let me tell you Edge was NOT pleased at all! He was downright pissed. He took it back and put it back on very quickly.

That being said obviously from the cover of Pop he has come to terms with it somewhat.

So I dont think he really cares any longer but given the choice likes to cover up. Why should he care. Obviously he can get someone as attractive and apparantly nice as Morleigh and you have more money than you could possibly spend in a lifetime, why would you care?? You wouldnt, anyway if it bothered him that much he certainly could afford plugs.

Actually, now that you say that, I have to agree. Does anyone remember the part in the Flanagan bible where the director of some video is listing the taboos: no shots of Edge without his hat being one of them? Funny funny funny

I doubt that Edge is embarassed for not having hair on top.

The hats are cool. Just ask Maddy - she's been without hair for 6 years now. Liberate your self from hair! Donate it to locks of love: http://www.locksoflove.org





For more info go to http://www.madelyniris.com

"Hair" - it's way over rated. Just ask Edge.

Edge didn't wear his hat in the Discotheque video or in the liner notes for POP, and that's about the coolest he's ever looked.

Well personally I'm embarassed by Salome's inability to spell embarassed

just pickin'

I have seen a few pictures of Edge unveiled, and I think he looks cool, but yeah the hat has become a trademark for sure (they even have a UToon about it) and it was sparked by the lack of hair I'd assume.

No doubt that he has so much to compensate for what he lacks on top.

Well you see ugly, rich guys with gorgeous women all the time! Not that Edge is ugly--I think the hat is sexy.

I dunno. He looked to me like a down-on-his-luck porn director.

Edge: Oh boy, here we go...
Bono: Wow, how many is that now Adam?
Adam: Nine. If I didn't have my spoons, I'd go insane.
Bono: Can I see it?
*adam gives bono the spoon, bono throws it away*
Adam: My spoon!

Salome's ball needs hair, then we can work on Edge.
