Personally I would like Edge to be cloned so we would have two Edges which would mean more fire to put out when they are on fire.

But I guess Angus Young is a decent option.

I love AC/DC but christ I hope you're taking the pi*s...

I'd love to see a really good keyboard/synth player, someone like Gillian Gilbert from New Order, or Brandon Curtis (from the Secret Machines).

Alternatively, Johnny Greenwood from Radiohead on guitar.

That wasn't my wish but I was just replying to luieu2s comment.

 ??? Wow, totally missed the original post. D'oh!

Angus is great in AC/DC, and could thrive in any number of other hard rock bands, but he'd be awful in U2. Although he does have marginally better dress sense than Bono  ;D

hehe don't worry  ;D

I've said this before and i'll say it again we'll get Edge to clone himself, so we'll have two Edges. Innovative, no?

PJ Harvey...

Could get Flea from the RHCP in. Rename the band "Double Bass". Could have a lead and rythm bass!

Probably wouldn't suit the music though. A percussionist or keyboard player wold suit U2 - Van Halan's keyboard player! or Dire Straits' drummer in on percussion!

Agree With daveyg. A good Keyboard player would be good. Couldn't name any though.  :(

Jonny Marr (former Smiths guitarist) perhaps? I'm sure Edge would be happy enough to lend him a guitar or two...especially if the alternative player was Bono  :P

How about just Brian Eno.  Already halfway a band member, good songwriter, can play keyboards, can do backing vocals, etc.

Myself (had to ;) ). I would go with Brian Eno, Daniel Lanois or some talented woman. They could use some eye candy for the guys too.

David Gilmour.  I think his playing and vocals would do well in the band.  That said, I agree that a keyboard player would be the most logical choice.
