U2-ness at B.B. King show

Just got back from seeing B.B. (and Dr. John) here in Houston. When B.B. was introducing his band, the following occurred:

B.B.: There have been so many people who have done so many things for me. One of them is this band U2--
ME: Whooooooooooo!
B.B.: They have this guitar player they like to call The Edge--
B.B: *pause* No, they're not here.

Heh, it was pretty cool. Then he said that Edge "makes the guitar sound like a rhythm section" and that the only other guy he's ever heard do that is the guy in his band.

Oh, and later he did play When Love Comes to Town, a really cool long jazzy version with horns.
