Sorry, I know it's not today's theme, but just to add to what the last few posts said:   if I had to pick one, my favourite live moment for Bono is Bad, Self Aid.

To me, the best performance of my favourite piece of music ever; no words can express how much I love it.   I can listen to it a dozen times in a row, and each time will STILL bring me near tears.   Bono's voice was so breathtaking, soaring and majestic; lifting the whole band's performance to the moon.

Because he has such force of personality, often when he 'wears' or owns the song, it's a brilliant performance:  eg The Fly, UTEOTW, Bullet, to name just three.   But I think his very best moments live are when he enters completely into the song and it owns him.   When his voice becomes a conduit for its power.   And that performance of Bad is the paragon of that.

Good morning, countdowners!  Today we shall celebrate the goodness of BEdge.  I will be stealing/sampling heavily from the BEdge thread, so thanks to all who post in there.

First off, some of my fave BEdge photos.  Can't  you feel the love?  Really, try to think of another band that has been together 30+ years with the same lineup.  To me, that's one of the special things about U2.  And they truly seem to enjoy each others' company.

A great BEdge quote, thanks to yellowhat.

I read J.Wenner's interview with Bono. It's from 2005.There's a whole section about Edge.This I found especially endearing:
WENNER: Are you guys best friends?
BONO: He’s one of my very best friends. I tend to put people into two categories: friends I worry about and friends I don’t worry about. Ali and Edge are definitely the friends I don’t worry about. They’re similar and they have similar roles in my life. I’m just in awe of them.

I have a fav BEdge pic but can't post from work. . . I will post later tonight. Can I say that the only thing better than BEdge is BEdge on a rainy day?

Love it lj! And that quote is awesome!

One of my favorite BEdge pics is the two of them standing out in front of the hotel and both are staring at the sun.  :D
What could be better than staring at the sun? Staring at the sun with one of your best mates?
I can't find the pic right now-- hope to look for it later.
