Happy 60 To U2’s Guitar Wizard THE EDGE

8 August 2021

David Howell Evans – better know as The Edge – was born
on 8 August 1961 in London, UK. Happy 60 to the brilliant
guitarist who defined the electrifying sound of mega stars U2 .
He moved with his family to Dublin, Ireland at the age of 2.

During his triumphant career, he also played with big
shots like Johnny Cash, B.B. King, Tina Turner en Ron Wood.

Anecdote: he’s the proud owner of 200 guitars.

The Edge: “By referencing our past, by allowing ourselves to sound
like the ‘old U2’—the Eighties U2—we’re not in a box anymore. Now
we’re free to sound any way we please. It’s very liberating.”

Three big EDGE moments…

– PRIDE (In The Name Of Love) –

– WHERE THE STREETS HAVE NO NAME –

– OUT OF CONTROL –
