Toughest Member Of The Band
« on: January 06, 2010, 07:09:45 AM »
Whom do you think is the toughest member of U2, the one you'd least want to get into a punch up with?  I would say The Edge because he's wiry and has that quiet look about him so you don't quite know what he's capable of.

Hmmm, Edge or Larry.

Edge is quiet, but something tells me you wouldn't want to meet him in a dark alley. (He did sock Bono, once, after all :D)

Larry. (Do I really have to say why?)

Don't forget, back in the day, Bono attacked Larry once. Surprised he lived to tell the tale.

Well, Larry is the muscle man but he has a bad back which is a liability.  Bono is an old street fighter from the days of his youth on the mean streets of north Dublin but nowadays he's a self professed pacifist and anyway he's a lover not a fighter.  Adam Clayton is like 'the Fonz', he's way too cool to fight.  No, The Edge is the one you'd have to watch out for if he lost his legendary composure.

Edge has probably invented some fighting techinques that he keeps locked away in his head in case of emergency.

The Edge's Poptache was positively evil looking.  He could have had a cameo role in 'No Country For Old Men'. ;D

Bono was pretty tough back in the day, but if we are talking about the present........LARRY by a mile! ;)

I thought not.

Larry is the obvious answer, but Edge is a dark horse, baby.

Agreed.  Edge can probably use that "zentense" stare to make an opponent's head explode... not that he'd ever actually DO that.  But I could definitely see him in a role as a James Bond-type villain!

My first reaction would be Larry, hands down, but Tumbling Dice has a point about the bad back. Bono would have been dangerous back in the day simply because of the reckless way I'd imagine he'd fight, but not anymore, I think. I guess it's Edge or Larry. (Adam's too cool to fight, heehee)

LOL - thread of the year.

Yeah, I know it's only January 6th, but it's definitely thread of the year!
