"Edge is not the most rock and roll soul you could meet. He's a much more monk-ish, zen-like being. By rock and roll, I mean metallic, blood-running-through-your-veins, adrenalised music."
The Edge on the guitar:
"Depending on what you're trying to do, you would pick up a different instrument to work with. If I'm writing a rock and roll song, it has to be a guitar because rock and roll is about the guitar. It's about guitar riffs, it's about that kind of energy that you get from hitting the big E chord when you've got the amp turned up full. There's no way you can get to that kind of feeling with another instrument."
