    While their singer recovers from emergency back surgery, the remaining members of U2 will not be wasting any time sitting around and waiting for him to get better. Rather, they will continue to work on new music. Guitarist The Edge posted an update on U2.com, writing, "Knowing him, he'd probably want to take some short cuts to recovery and get ahead of himself but from what I understand he needs to do this in a methodical way, so we'll be there to chain him down if need be." The guitarist said the unexpected time off the road will give them the chance to work on new songs, which they may play live when they kick off a European tour in August.

    What is your favorite U2 song? I'm going to go with "Angel of Harlem" or "With or Without You" or "Stay (Far Away So Close)."
