Which band member has aged the best?
« on: July 25, 2013, 08:39:07 PM »
Which band member has aged the best in their facial features?
Physique?

For me, Edge just gets better looking in his face. I did not think he was that attractive when they first started out, especially compared to Bono. 2nd is Adam...again he was not that attractive to me in his 20s. Larry and Bono are of course still attractive but they are more weathered.

Physique wise Larry keeps in great shape, 2nd is Adam IMO.

Your opinion?

I say Larry is the winner the newer in my opinion he still looks 30 or so. But then again all of them aged rather decently.

I know I'll catch a ration of flak for this but IMHO, Bono has aged the worst out of all 4 of 'em. He seems to fluctuate a lot in weight and body shape, and generally looks tired. (I know, I know, he doesn't seem to sleep with all that he does) The other 3 all still look pretty good.

Adam, and it actually a pretty easy choice.

Not bad for 50 years old.

I say Adam and Larry are a tie. Becuase it seems Adams aged. But not since around HTDAAB. Larry hasn't aged at all...(I'm still in a heated argument with a friend of mine if he's a vampire or not. And if he bit Adam around HTDAAB  ;D) that's just my opinion on things.

I'm actually in agreement with you on that, I think it's obvious that the rhythm section (Adam and Larry) have aged the best, especially Larry.   He still looks about 10 years younger than his actual age, haha!

Adam has always looked older than the rest. He looked about 30 during the TUF era about 35 in '87, about 40 on ZooTV maintained that look for about a decade and he looks a bit older than his age today.

Larry aged badly between Popmart and Elevation, and has had that fake plastic surgery youthful look ever since. I think he aged the worst.

Bono looks his age even if that isn't a good thing and Edge aged pretty well, I'd say he annoys me the least.

Adam for sure.

Then Edge, then Larry (who, IMO has indeed started to age) and then Bono.

The Edge.  He's like a bald George Clooney.

The Edge is way smoother.  Adam's more like me.

Edge!

Agreed, although I do wish he would a) let his beard be salt and pepper, even during a tour, and b) go "nekkid" more often, as in not wear a beanie or any sort of hat and embrace the bald.
