"Well, I guess with all the records he's sold, he's entitled to call himself whatever he wants."
From The Onion:
The Edge Still Introducing Self As SuchI like this, because I've devoted a lot of time to thinking if the guitarist from The Offspring still calls himself 'Noodles' when he's in his 40s. I guess I could use my time to volunteer somewhere, but no, I think about stuff like the guitarist from The Offspring.
MALIBU, CA—U2 guitarist The Edge, born David Evans, introduces himself by his stage name, sources reported Monday. "He showed up at parent-teacher conferences, extended his hand, and said, 'Hi, I'm Sian's father The Edge,'" said Dory Beckman, a second-grade teacher at Malibu Heights Elementary. "I didn't quite understand, so he said, 'U2's The Edge.' Well, I guess with all the records he's sold, he's entitled to call himself whatever he wants." Employees at Gladstone's 4 Fish restaurant said Evans placed "The Edge" on their waiting list when he took his family out for fried scallops last week.
