    Andy. Memorable riffs and such.

    For all the U2 songs I know... guitar is usually just a contributing component in the song.

    Andy Summers, and the reason is that he is an awesome guitar player and The Edge is well, The Edge. Fine for U2, but I wouldn't want him if I was starting a band.

    Summers. The Edge is cool for what he does, or was cool up until everything U2 did after Achtung Baby sucked ass, but Summers is just more versatile and just a better all around player.

    Andy Summers did the score music for the brilliant Showcase TV series Dead Like Me. Starring Mandy Patinkin of Homeland fame among a great ensamble cast. Fimed in Vancouver. Absolutley fantastic.

    Not a U2 fan at all. I'd actually go so far to say I hate them. Big time. Really despise U2 everything about them annoys me.

    They're both good, but since I don't think of either of them when I think of guitarists that I like, I'll give the edge to The Edge. I'm more familiar with his guitar playing than Summers.

    What's next, Mike Rutherford vs J. Geils?

    Summers by default. Can't stand The Edge. Dude wouldn't have a career if it wasn't for a delay pedal.

    Andy Summers all the way.
     "He has a swaggering retro machismo that will give hives to the Steinem cabal" -Camille Paglia on Donald Trump

    "But, fucking with Brook is like fucking with hot shit on and ax handle. You just don't get a grip"-track5

    "Make way for the bad guy"- Tony Montana

    'This hamburger don't need no helper"- David Lee Roth

    "I wish Bon Jovi would've given me a call before he recorded all of his hits, because the lyrics would've been smarter, the melodies would've been much more smashing, and they would've sold a lot fewer records." -David Lee Roth

    "My beef is people thinking Bon Jovi is good cuz they sold lots of records to housewives." -tango

    "But being number one doesn’t really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen

    The Edge. He's more innovative and eclectic in his playing. I love U2. Can't stand the Police.

    Edge is more distinctive, in my view.
