Edge is Brilliant!!!!

I was just listening to Miracle drug (for the thousandth time) and have realized just how amazing Edge's solo is gonna be live!!!
Does anyone else think this? I mean . . its wonderful on the record, so now imagine it live!

Edge is very present on this album and I agree with the thread title.

MD is great, but I heard the Brooklyn concert the other day and his guitar work in COBL live is going to be incredible!!!

I would have liked to have that greatness also on the album, not just live. Why they don't just record a "live" album in the studio, BEFORE doing it out?!

I think hearing Miracle Drug on this tour is going to be that one Zen-like moment in the show. Edge's solo, his verse, and the final chorus are just too good. Too good, even for U2. It should be a crime.

Edge has always been my favourite member of U2...and in my opinion the main reason that U2 has sounded fresh to my ears.

The Edge is brilliant. His work on HTDAAB is great. I particularly like some of the crazier stuff he came up with on Love and Peace or Else. I think that's one of the fuzzier tones I've ever heard him use.

Just a pity he wasn't allowed to shine on Original of the Species. You can hear some great stuff in the background, but it all gets overshadowed by the strings and such.

This is the moment of the live show I am looking most forward to, if I go to a show that is.

Back to real crux of this thread, I absolutely loved the CD:UK version of this song (even though the instruments were mimed). I think that the whole part from Edge's solo to Edge's vocal back to Bono is going to be a show stopper!!

Man, I LOVE Edge's new mini guitar slide. Just listen to all the slide guitar on this album, ahh it's bursting with slide-infused goodness! I love how he has a l'il custom made one that he can wear and use to play chords and notes at the same time.

Now that's BRILLIANT.

Adds a whole new dynamic to his style if you ask me

As a guitarist, I think Edge is sooo underated. For example, he took things that Gilmour only did every few songs and Edge just molded it into every single song. His talent is very underated in the biz I think.

Underrated???? many people could say the same for Bono! I'm a HUGE Bono fan, believe me but what you could say for one member (of U2) can apply for all the rest! remember "every artist is a cannibal, every poet a thief, all kill their inspiration, and sing about the grief"

I was listening to Under A Blood Red Sky and thought the same thing. Too bad he doesn't play like that anymore though
