The Edge has admitted that the CD of new U2 tracks that went missing in Nice
earlier this week was his. The CD features studio cuts of tracks from the band’s up coming album, and disappeared during a photo shoot at the French city’s Victorine Studios. Police were called in and interviewed staff at the studios – they say it is unclear if the CD has just been misplaced or if it has been stolen. If the latter is the case officials reckon it will have been taken by a hard line fan, or someone who wants to put the tracks online ahead of the album’s Nov release.
Commenting on the missing CD, The Edge told reporters yesterday: “A large slice of two years work lifted via a piece of round plastic. It doesn’t seem credible but that’s what’s just happened to us…and it was my CD.”..
