Does Edge Still Have A Song Left In Him?

As U2's career slowly winds down, do you guys think Edge still has one more full vocal song left in him that will be included in a future U2 album or do you think Numb was already his studio swan song and Popmart SBS his live finale?

His cameo vocal appearance on Miracle Drug was cute, but it's no full song. So what do you guys think?

I think Edge is done for his singing career in U2.

Cheers,

J

Actually he was talking about it in this Dutch interview. He said something like he likes singing, but its still Bono's part, that he likes Bono's voice etc. Nothing concrete as far as i remember.

Hm..guess i have to listen to it again

A full falsetto vocal like the little part he does in AMAAW would be nice

Some people missed my point. This thread is not about Edge's guitar playing but more about his singing a full song.

Cheers,

Thanks for keeping us children on track Jick.

Firstly, who says that U2 is slowly winding down? That is pure speculation. Secondly, in my opinion, Edge's verse in MD is a lot more that "cute". It is powerful and brilliant. That verse has piqued my desire for a full Edge vocal song (with possibly Bono singing a verse).

Just to sidetrack again for a sec, I could actually still see U2 putting out albums in their 50s and beyond. Perhaps stating at some point that a final tour, but still writing/recording together. If they still have a spark and like each other, why not? Any replies to this maybe start a new thread, because this one is about whether Edge's singing days are over.
I think we'll hear from him again

I think Edge's Daydream Believer is basically a full middle finger to you/r question.

I don't think he should sing a full song. I love his backup vocals, but I think Bono's voice makes U2 that much more unique and recognizable.

During U2's slow decline, as evident by the 1.4 million records they've sold in less than a month, I find it disturbing that they have not handed the singing duties over to the Edge. Let the Edge run the band and leave Bono to strum the rhythm guitar or a bang a tamborine. Then, just maybe, U2 will start selling albums again....

Ah, another negative u2 thread from Jick, that's just your opinion that u2 have been on a decline since TJT. Man, why are you still a fan of this band if you feel that way? I just don't get it. Move onto something else if you haven't fully enjoyed a record since TJT.

Anyway, I like Edge as a backing vocalist rather than a lead, so I wouldn't mind never hearing Edge sing the lead again IMHO.
