Good thing he was playing a Tele...I mean Strat.

A Fender, that's it.

Imagine if he broke the neck on his Explorer. Good thing it was that Fender junk :D

This is pretty amusing to me because I have a coworker that's headed to Vancouver today for their 2nd show.
I asked him yesterday if he was excited and he told me that he's looking forward to it, but he wouldn't be excited until they actually stepped foot onstage and started the show.
He said too many variables could stop them from playing, he actually said "for all we know, The Edge could fall off the stage tonight and end the tour before it even gets started".
I'm pretty sure he said it jokingly but when I read the story this morning I had a serious WTF moment.
I sent him a text this morning and we had a good laugh about it.

If he had been playing a burst he would have just hovered above the stage :slash:

His famous Explorer has had a broken neck. HE threw the Explorer as he watched security roughing up fans during a show and broke the headstock clean off. Been playing repaired for @ 20 years.

I feel bad for laughing. No I don't.

I don't know, that moment where his foot is hovering over air and he thinks he's about to step on solid ground.

He broke his Explorer on stage once by throwing it down when he was intervening to stop security beating the crap out of audience members ouch
