Re-naming The Edge

I have been spreading the word around the town that i live in, Melbourne-Australia, that my daughter has re-named Edge to Beanieman.

I think this name suits him better since all he wears now is beanies..

What do you think? Should we all start calling him Beanieman?

I also would like everyone to post pictures of Egde as "Beanieman" please. I appologize that i haven't as i am working on a friends computer and i haven't got my picture files with me.

there's a jamaican hip hop dude who goes by "beenieman." and he is VERY different from edge. even though the spelling is diff, the pronounciation is the same. so.... confusion would arise!

"hey look at beenieman, the guy from u2!!"
"What, he joined u2??"
"Nooo, he's always been in it!"
"Whaaat???"

And so on.

@crystal4470:
Welcome! What did she say this time? if I show Edge pics to others at my school they all don't know who he is seriously.
"Who's U2?" ...



I love this one - look at those eyes


Well, perhaps we should call him Edge-Beanieman? It's a bit long..

Edge and Michael Palin have similar eyes, yer know. Well, Palin when he was younger. You get a good close-up in the Polly/Lumberjack sketch of them. Heh heh. I love Monty Python.

Thanks for the photos. my daughter has them now pinned to her bedroom wall with a great big sign she painted "Beanieman".

I am now looking for a photo of Edge playing his red guitar, cos my daughter has a red toy guitar. I think he plays a red guitar on the vertigo, chicago dvd.

He is also called Reg. I'm not sure why... but he's even credited as Reg on a home video (I'll have to look through and remember which one).

I wondered about the Reg name as well I read it's a short form of a name (he doesn't even have lol).

According to the Flannigan Bible, "Reg" is the nickname that the guys gave to Edge. Sort of an inside joke kind of thing. I'm still looking for the exact quote.
