In a Time Magazine interview, U2 lead guitarist The Edge is quoted saying “You Get What You Give” is the song he is most “jealous of.” “I really would love to have written that,” he stated.

fuck the haters

sheisanarchy:

all of you hating on The Edge and saying he doesn’t belong in the film with Jack and Jimmy obviously don’t understand music. Chances are The Edge had been playing music longer than you’ve been alive. If you can’t intelligently lend some commentary to a subject, it is best that you clam up about it then. making snide, ignorant remarks doesn’t help your image at all…you look uneducated and as though you know nothing about music. btw, Jack White uses effects too…

I think for guitar players there’s a couple of different types. I think there are the sort of gunslinger guitarists it’s sort of “the fastest drawer in the West” mentality. And then there’s the sidemen, you know, who are really about supporting the singer and playing the songs and try to make the whole thing mesh together. And I really think of myself more as that sideman kind of guitar player. I think Keith Richards and that same mold. I have to say my favourite guitar players are that type. The Guitar Olympics. Pete is the sideman, even though he’s the frontman in a lot of people’s book, you know, he’s playing the songs. It’s all about getting the song across, supporting the singer. That’s what I think. Johnny Marr was the same, you know. It’s about the entire. It’s not about just shining in the spotlight as being an incredibly talented virtuoso guitar player. That’s not that interesting in the end.

behold-and-love-this-giant:

skeeterthompson replied to your post “i didn’t think anyone hated a musician the way i hate Bono and The…”

Fuck U2 though too. i always fast forward the edge’s parts in IMGL

no for real U2 is a pile of garbage ugh. hahaha omg i do, too. except the part where he’s trying to teach Jimmy Page and Jack White how to play a U2 song and it’s only like, two chords and Jimmy Page is literally done with this guy’s bullshit.

OMG, I LOVE The Edge in It Might Get Loud. I understand why so many people don’t like U2. But… The Edge…

Until 2009, I didn’t understand why people say that The Edge is a great guitarist. And then I was getting into U2… And now I see The Edge differently.
