When performers fall on stage, few can do it as poetically and masterfully as U2 guitarist The Edge. Not only did The Edge literally fall off the edge of the stage during a concert in Vancouver, he makes it look nonchalant, almost effortless.

Eat your heart out, Madonna! Sure you fell spectacularly but it was so ungainly, so awkward-looking!

Watch a master, and take note.

P. S. Could it be that U2 are simply too old for the rigors of rock and roll? First Bono's bike accident, now this? Should they just stay home and concentrate on their tax-avoidance? You decide.
