The Edge’s Birthday Thread

Happy Birthday, Mr. The Edge! 😎🎸

I was right by you by the b-stage at the second Philadelphia date on the e&i tour (6/14/18) - proof below (I have a better shot, but Apple is not letting me include it without rotating you by 90 degrees). It was a joy to be so close, esp. since this was the tour that finally brought us a live version of "Acrobat". However, your playing has brought me, and all of us, joy ever since we all first heard the opening to "I Will Follow".

Thank you for your guitar-playing for the entirety of your career (and for being adventurous enough to change and improve your sound as often and as well as you have), thank you for your backing (and, occasionally, lead) vocals, thank you for your keyboard playing, thank you for your production skills, and, most of all, thank you for being one of the four members of the greatest band ever (well, IMHO anyway).

There's an extra reason that this day is special for me too. Just as Bono shares a birthday with my Dad (May 10), you share a birthday with my brother Mark. Mark was also a musician - he was a wizard on the keyboards. I take you two (pun partially intended) as proof that August 8 is truly a day of high-quality musicians. Sadly, Mark passed in 1996, but I always remember him and his playing fondly, esp. today. I will be watching "It Might Get Loud" in honor of both of you - more details here:



Please have the greatest of days today, and we'll be here for you whenever you have new music to present to the world and can play to us live again, no matter how long it takes. Thank you for your whole career!
