Edge takes the lead vocals

Edge has taken the lead vocals a couple of times - should he take them more often or should he stick to his guitar playing?

I love the way Edge sings...I wish he would more often, but I know that he won't because of Bono. I love love love his vocals on Stuck, and I love Van Diemen's Land. Edge rules!!!

Though I like Edge's vocals, it's his guitar playing that makes his signature.

I adore Edge's singing, and Van Dieman's Land and Seconds (I think he sang that) are some of my fave past U2 moments..

But unless the song is really special, I think if he and Bono were to trade off verses in a song it would sound to Boy Band-y. Edge is such a presence with his guitar, I guess I would have to just form an opinion on a case by case basis.

Edge did not sing Seconds. It was Bono(obviously, since it wasn't Edge).

I think Edge's voice has greatly improved since Van Diemen's Lan. I for one, hated his singing in that song. It Sounded like some one trying to sing for the first time in his life. But now, it seems as though he's been taking singing lessons cause he's reaching notes that I never thought Edge could reach. I didn't even know it was him singing in Stuck.

It would be great to hear him sing one or 2 songs in the next album.

You were joking about that, right? Because if I recall correctly, there is a bit in the Flanagan book ATEOTW that deals with exactly that. Edge singing Seconds and people assuming it was Bono.

The Edge should stay with backup vocals, because I would miss Bono's voice too much!

Neither did I!! ANd when I saw my first Elevation show and there he was singing away, I was soooo impressed. But I prefer him in those roles, singing back-up. I think a whole song would be too much, even though I am a HUGE Edge fan.

Actually, Edge did sing in Seconds - but only the first verse.

I think it should be up to Edge himself. He's got a GREAT voice and is a VERY talented musician with the guitar. Either way perfect music comes from that man. But I think how about him singing a lil more with the guitar to show off a bit. Come on Bono has the spotlight on him enough lol. give the others a shot. ok i'm done.
LATERS!

I've said it many times before, Edge NEEDS a solo album that will showcase his amazing guitar work AND HIS VOICE!!

A mere 3-4 songs over 25 years is all we get? Come on, you guys!

Hey, what the hell, throw Lardence in there as well!

Does Edge also sing the first couple verses of Drowning Man (from War)? Just wondering. If it is Bono that sings the main parts, then he sure sounds different in the first couple verses.
