Edge=Van Gogh?



U2 rocker Bono has hailed guitarist The Edge as a "genius" - comparing his bandmate to famous artist Vincent Van Gogh.

The Irish star made the comments during a response to a positive Rolling Stone magazine review about the reissue of U2's Boy album.

And while Bono admires the band's bassist Adam Clayton and drummer Larry Mullen, Jr, he admits The Edge - real name David Evans - is the true mastermind of the group.

He says, "Edge's genuine genius develops on the blank and bleached photographic paper, avoiding all the obvious blues scales that blind every other guitar player that ever heard Led Zeppelin.

"The Edge finds some new colours for the spectrum of rock. Colours he now owns. Owning a colour, wow. Imagine owning the colour yellow, like Van Gogh. Edge owns, well I'm not exactly sure what colours they are... indigo or violet or crimson? But you sense an emotional colour temperature that is unique to him. It's his palette we're painting from." Bono, my dear, my love, wtf? Lay off the African herbs.

I just hope Mrs. Bono and Mrs. Edge aren't jealous of the relationship.
