The Edge. Always, in all situations.

Larry. By far the coolest member of U2

Damn, that's surprisingly difficult. I like all four members damn near equally, but I think I'd have to say The Edge. Guitar god and underrated singer (he should sing lead on a song or two each album, seriously) and overall a cool-headed dude. But Bono is so so close second, specifically for all those magic vocal moment times like on 'Lemon' and 'Mothers of the Disappeared' and for The Fly, Macphisto and Mirror Ball Man, how awesome.

Adam.

Bono is great when he's not in BS mode, but he's in BS mode a lot.
The Edge is overly diplomatic most of the time, which makes him seem at best inscrutable, at worst calculatingly businesslike. He could be my fave band member were he a bit more fun.

I don't like Larry as a public figure at all. He's grumpy and seems to have a mediocre sense of humor, which prevents it being a cool grumpiness.

Adam on the other hand is well spoken, warm and likable, and he tends to offer some insight, despite being diplomatic.

I've wished I could sing like Bono, play guitar like Edge, be as cool as Adam and as handsome as Larry. But I'll give the nod to Edge.

U2 would not be U2 without Bono. The Edge is right up there too of course, from a musical aspect, but Bono is the heart and soul of everything. No question about it. Love the guy, flaws and all.

U2 wouldn't be U2 anymore if any of the 4 were to exit, but the lion's share of what makes the band soar is Bono.

I've loved them all at different stages of my life & I echo the individual comments made by others already.

At the moment I am going through an Adam phase. He has always been the coolest member of the band but he has become more vocal in interviews and has shown himself to be really insightful & interesting. Added to that his bass playing has really improved over the last 10yrs

Bono, but he's just a smidge ahead of Adam who I also love tons.

Bono and then Adam. I don't really know why Adam, but there something about him that I like.

Bono.  He gives so much of himself to almost whomever does the asking.  Warm, generous, intelligent, insightful, curious.  I admire him a great deal.
