U2 guitarist The Edge has said he hates jamming.

The 48-year-old musician - real name David Howell Evans - claims that he tries to "avoid" situations where he has to play with other guitarists.

He said: "Jamming is really the most awful, excruciating experience for me, I really don't enjoy it.

"First of all that's not how I work as a guitar player. I compose using the instrument, I don't really site down and play for the sake of playing stuff."

Discussing U2's latest album 'No Line On The Horizon', which sold four million copies, David suggested that it wasn't well received because the songs were not "really radio friendly".

He added to the Daily Telegraph newspaper: "Even 'Get On Your Boots', which is high octane, its not a slam dunk of a hit song. I think everyone has just got caught up in the plan as opposed to sitting back and thinking about the record we'd made. But I feel ok about it."
