Dik Evans pictures?

Not sure if I'm posting this in the right place... Here'e the request...

Other than a photo of Dik & Virgin Prunes in the "Into The Heart" book and a later picture of Dik with Edge and Morliegh from the Zoo era... Haven't seen many pictures of The Edge's older brother.

Anyone have any of him playing guitar with Virgin Prunes? Interested to see what guitars and such Dik used for his work in Virgin Prunes.

There are quite a few photos at Virgin Prunes :: Home

There used to be a couple of recent photos of the band at gavinfriday.com, from around 2004 when their albums were re-released. They may still be on there but the owner of the website recently redesigned it and it's not very user friendly, so sadly I haven't been able to relocate them for you.

You might also try this site:

Most of the images on this site are of guggi and gavin but a think there's a couple of Dik.

I don't know if that was called for. He was in U2 at the start after all and many people here are fans of the Virgin Prunes.

He got cut cause he was a substandard axe man. No room for dead wood in U2.

Not so much. Did the band feel that one guitar fit the bill better? Yes.

But substandard? No. And yet more people have heard of Dik Evans than you. =O)

Actually, he didn't get cut. He left the band of his own accord. He preferred to dedicate himself to school full-time. (There's an interesting bit about this in Matt McGee's new book, U2 Diary, which I'm really enjoying.)
