Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on playing the guitar] When I came along, there was a clear need to reassess the instrument. I was drawn to the idea of minimalism. To get the maximum effect from the minimum number of notes. There was a clear need to change the furniture around. See more »

Trivia:

Christened 'Dave Edge' by Bono, because he was on the edge of things, assessing what was going on and partly because of the shape of his head, which had a straight edge. See more »
