Just reading that and I know it probably sounds like a joke but it's not. I can't really recall if the song is any good or not. Anyway, I thought it was somewhat relevant and amusing. But I don't think the lyrics reference The Edge at all. Carry on.
leatherman is a great PJ b-side. it was the b-side to Given to Fly. just a quick little ditty they like to throw in to have some fun at shows. its about a weird little 19th century hobo who used to wander the american countryside in greasy old leather clothes.

Exactly, you do not share this opinion. But most fans that spent their days in lines to be able to stay near the stage/catwalk are eager to any band member coming close to them. Edge being able to move makes their show better. The majority approves this, so those against it must deal with it, if it's something that bothers one that much.
I won't go any further... if I do we'll be falling into the "setlist argument" where some think the will of few should top the will of many.

Am I the only one who has mistaken Edge's microphone for a cigarette a few times?

Head-mic Edge does at times look like he's about to give a lecture at a corporate seminar. Maybe Bono should get one?

The mic lets Edge roam around and it's definitely easier while playing guitar. Who gives a fuck what it looks like?
And for your information Edge looks fucking hot.

So, you are saying that the mic does not in any way take away from his too sexiness?

That right there was bloody Brilliant!

Now I just laughed my whole ass through this thread you all crack me up!

Now I like the headset since it lets Edge roam freely around the stage without having to carry a mic or stand everywhere or have someone do it for them also help with fan experiences personally, personally I could care less if it looks funny or not.

But what do I know? I'm just a coconut in the tree that waits to fall at the right time.

I have no clue what I mean with that coconut comment it just came to me

You might not know what it means, but it's deeper, better written and smarter than 99.8% than what's written here in this thread.

You guys are aware of the super badass tool called the LEATHERMAN, aren't you? I'd say it's a fitting nickname for our favorite multi-tasker!
