Mr. David Howell Evans — more famously known as "The Edge" — was born 57 years ago today on August 8, 1961.
The U2 guitarist accomplished that brutally tough gig of crafting a unique and individual guitar sound when the band broke in America upon the release of Boy on October 20, 1980. In our just-released official Guitar Player 50th Anniversary issue (October 2017), The Edge was chosen as one of the magazine's "Top Cover Artists" for his 2001 cover.
What better way to wish The Edge a "Happy Birthday" than to play one of his licks?
