I'm not the biggest U2 fan in the world there is nobody that sounds quite like The Edge. He has that echo filled, bell-like, sparkly tone with just a bit of distortion. He may not be a virtuoso but that doesn't matter to me. I'm more interested in guitarists who are innovative or just plain rock. Noodling scales can just get boring. The Edge is a master at creating a perfect tone.
AND WHEN YOU’RE UP, YOU’RE UP … AND WHEN YOU’RE DOWN, YOU’RE DOWN … AND WHEN YOU’RE ONLY HALF WAY UP … YOU’RE NEITHER UP NOR DOWN … WELL, THAT’s WEDNESDAY for YOU ... SOOO, MIGHT as WELL MAKE the MOST of IT!! :-)
