Sure. Long as it's not another Van Diemen's Land.  ;)

I really like Edge where he is.

His contribution to the chorus of "Boots" is perfect.

I wouldn't want him to sing on every album as a duty or something like that. If it fits the song, why not ? But not as something tha HAS to be done.

Edge SHOULD sing more. He has a wonderful voice, and unlike Bono, his voice is in great condition. I hope he double tracks with Bono often on "No Line."

Van Deiman's Land and Numb should be played at every concert.

Boom Cha!

Bono needs to stop hogging the microphone and hand it over to The Edge a little more.  ;D

the original design for the Larry Mullen Jnr band was to have Dave Evans on vocals with back up guitar and his brother as the lead guitar but Paul Hewson came in and bossed everyone around so that he would be lead singer. This forced Dave Evans brother to leave as he was in such a huff with Paul Hewson. Thus the Larry Mullen Jnr band with Dave Evans on vocal never got started. I wonder how successfull they would have been?

Bono needs to hand the stage over to Edge more often. Watch Red Rocks and see if you don't agree.

LOL. I wonder what would have happen if Edge's brother would have stayed in the band

Richard "d**k" (also "Dik") Evans is the brother of David Howell "The Edge" Evans, guitarist for rock band U2.

The Evans brothers both played guitar in the initial line-up of the band, known as "The Hype," sharing their homemade guitar. The Edge attributes some of his own muscianship to the influence of his Brother's guitar playing. The Hype had come to an agreement that there was no need for three guitarists (the Evans brothers and Bono at the time). They felt that as a unit a four-piece operated better.Together, they played one final gig, first as The Hype, then returning without the elder Evans brother as U2. This is when the whole Paul Hewson/Dik Evans thing raised it's head. Paul virtually kicked Dik Evans out of the band. Dik Evans left after a Hype gig to concentrate on academia. He later joined fellow Dublin scenesters the Virgin Prunes. He was also a member of The Screech Owls. Initially, Paul sang, played guitar, and wrote the band's songs. He said of his early guitar playing in a 1982 interview, "When we started out I was the guitar player, along with David except I couldn't play guitar. I still can't. I was such a lousy guitar player that one day they broke it to me that maybe I should sing instead. I had tried before, but I had no voice at all. I remember the day I found I could sing. I said, 'Oh, that's how you do it.'When David's guitar playing improved, Paul was relegated mostly to the microphone, although he occasionally still plays rhythm guitar and harmonica. Paul Hewson has recently taken piano lessons from his children's piano teacher. So why did they really get rid of Dik if Paul Hewson could never really play guitar? was it a big fall out?


Some say Dik Evans was actually a better guitarist than his younger brother David. Dik taught David a lot of what he knows.

The Hype would have been an interesting band to listen to. If it had progressed through the musical circles and timeframe as U2 did.
