Johnny Cash - he sang lead on the U2 song, "The Wanderer."

Bono was not accepted as a correct answer because he is already the lead singer for U2.

The Edge was accepted as a correct answer because he is not the lead singer of U2 and that makes him eligible.

We didn't think it was necessary to put that in the question but a few people actually answered, Bono. LOL
