Most likely because 99.99999999% of the people who see Bailey's act, won't be offended by it, and quite likely that a very high percentage of those people would find it to be innocent entertainment. Which is all that it is.
I'd bet that if the Edge himself saw it, he'd get a chuckle out of it, just as Vai got a chuckle out of Joe Travers doing a mime impression of Steve.

There are many things worth getting pissed off about, but I wonder if this is one of them.

Wow! So that makes TWO shaman's in one band?? That has to be the record.

If I came across as being pissed off, sorry!!! Not my intention. Like I said, I realise this is funny, it just isn't funny to me!!! The Edge might think it's funny, but again, I don't. I was merely stating an opinion.

Brilliant, stuff. I suppose this illustrates U2 aren't really a 'guitar band' or that David Howell Evans isn't a guitar virtuoso, they write popular songs that touch many, many people.

I can play " In the Name of Love" on guitar

Let's just say pretty much everything they did up until Achtung Baby was gold, but since then they lost me.
