Because he's insanely talented. Leaps around, runs around, lets the crowd play his guitar for parts... in fact, I think he is basically what Bono would be if Bono played the guitar. And yes, he crowd-surfs. Sometimes while still playing.

But then, he's not just 'good', he's almost Edge-good!

I think the best guitar player of the E street band is Niles though  ;)

Hows he sing during it without the microphone?

He could use a headset microphone, I imagine.

Bono is a solid guitar player, this is simply the structure and positions that the band wants, and it works. Bono is not as good as the edge at guitar, but I've scrutinised his playing a few times, and well, he plays good solid guitar.
Basically my answer to the opening question is that he agrees that his energy is best spent away from the guitar, interecting with the audience, and so chooses to do that, but him being terrible- well if he was terrible or brilliant it wouldn't be relevant because this is what he thinks is most effective.

And can we agree Bono may be bad at guitar but is a better singer than Edge

Absolutely.  Bono is the absolute greatest rock singer alive today I will bet anyone.

But without yang, there is no yin.

Bono and Edge are like apple pie and ice cream... Lennon and McCartney.  Without the two together, there is no magic... :)

Bono is a better lead man than Edge. :)
also I don't see how Bono is terrible at guitar.


Maybe he's not terrible, but I can't help but laugh when he has the guitar on, but only has an accesory because he plays the first chord and then completely stops playing for almost all the song  :P

But he played Amazing Grace... a major two chord song !!
