Feliz Aniversário dear Mr.The Edge

"As a guitar player, there are so many cliches you keep having to avoid. It's a case of continually trying to find new things to do and say with the guitar. For me that's the real challenge.
I suppose most people think of the lead-guitar player as the gunslinger of musicians.
Particularly in the 1970s, that approach reached its zenith. Coming after that rock 'n'roll guitar virtuosity, I felt the only thing to do was try the opposite approach.
It suited our band and suits my personality, so I developed a much more minimalist approach. I'd be busy trying to find the least number of notes that could convey the maximum effect. I didn't want to sound like anyone else.
I'm not reverential about guitars. To me it was not really about the guitar, it was about finding something interesting with whatever equipment I happened to have. You hear a lot of guitar players talking about their guitars as if they are people. I could never quite go there. I never felt the actual instrument was all that crucial.
My guitar only comes out on formal occasions. I write, but I don't play much for fun. I don't goof around at home. I play U2 songs - I don't really play guitar."

That´s just the way he is...and that´s exactly the reason why we love him so much...our good man The Edge.

Happy Birthday Edge

Edge Birthday Haiku

His name is the Edge
Guitar God with a goatee
And its his birthday

Ok, so technically not a haiku considering I didn't mention anything about nature but too bad.
