Ep 62. The Edge

Ep 62. The Edge

At least once, and hopefully many times, each of us has experienced the rush of being completely transported by a musical experience – one concert, one song, or even a single riff. For 15-year-old Dave Evans, Moment One was playing guitar (loudly) for his classmates in a high school auditorium with a band of three friends. One of those friends thought maybe the band could become as big as The Beatles. Evans’ reaction? “Yeah, right.” How U2 struggled out of Dublin’s small music scene and actually became the world’s biggest band is one of the best stories in rock, but even more amazing is how they’ve managed to stay that way for decades. Equally proud and humble about the journey, The Edge recounts it from the inside, sharing the origins of his iconic guitar sound, the unique songwriting process that both confounds and inspires him, and how the band chased – and then adjusted to – success. And, why success is never a good place to stop.
