    Edge. I don't care how "limited" he is. His music puts me in my feels. I listen to Red Hill Mining Town and I go into a day dream.

    Don't get me wrong. I'm down with The Police but I wouldn't say their music moves me in the way that classic U2 does.

    U2 from 1981-91 has a lot of great tunes with some very cool parts by Edge, but I too prefer Summers as a player overall.

    What if the Edge likes that?

    I am not a fan of either band really, though they both wrote songs that I like. I would say I respect them both for their ability to "color" or use their instruments to add texture to their songs. Neither band relies on the guitarist to come up with riffs or over the top solos. I think you could add Lindsay Buckingham to the mix as well.

    Default Andy Summers or The Edge?

    Andy Summers by a country mile. Brilliant player. Thereís nothing interesting to me about anything the Edge has ever played. Take away that stupid chorus sound and heís got nothing. Plus I love the Police overall anyway.

    Andy is my man!
    He got me away from the floyd rose and tapping!
    Wanted to be EVH until i discovered one of Andy's solo jazz records.
    Have met him many times over the years and seen him play in clubs.
