The Edge Net Worth, Biography & Wiki 2017

David Howell Evans, born on the 8th August 1961, is an Irish musician famously known as The Edge, the lead guitarist of the world-renowned band U2.

So how much is The Edge’s net worth? As of early 2016, according to sources it is reported to be $200 million, gained mostly from the success of the band U2, the sales of their albums and the record-breaking attendances during their tours.

The Edge Net Worth $200 Million

Edge was born in Barking, Essex, (east London) to parents Gwenda and Garvin. Along with sister Gillian and brother Richard, the whole family moved to Dublin and has lived there ever since. He attended St. Andrews Primary School and later on Mount Temple Comprehensive High School.

Even at an early age, Edge was already fond of playing various musical instruments with his brother Richard. While attending Mount Temple, Larry Mullen Jr., put up an announcement that he was forming a band. Edge along with Paul Hewson “Bono”and Adam Clayton signed up and the four formed a band. From “Feedback” to “The Hype”, in March of 1978, they decided to call their band “U2”. Aside from the changing band names, Hewson decided that he would carry the name Bono, and later baptized The Edge with the name we know now.

The four started playing in small venues in Dublin and around Ireland in their early years. In 1978, the band won a contest with a small cash price and a chance to record in a studio. They later on released an EP entitled “Three”, which received minor success in Ireland. They went on to release a few singles and perform in minor shows in Ireland until they were discovered by record label Island Records in March of 1980.

Already a minor success in Dublin, the band’s first official album was “Boy”, which was followed through with a tour in some parts of Europe and the United States. The album and the band’s live performances garnered positive reviews, making them known in the United States.

The band and Edge encountered some problems during 1981, when Edge and Bono decided that they wanted to leave the band due to their religious beliefs. However, after much consideration, the two decided to stay and continued with the band leading up to the release of their next album “October”.

With their differences being put aside, the four would later produce a total of 12 best-selling albums, perform concerts with the most attendances in history, and gain hundreds of awards and accolades making them one of the most successful bands in the world, and making the four members well-known individually and increasing their net worth.

The Edge is today known to be one of the best guitarists in the world of music because of his distinctive and “anti-guitar hero” style. Aside from U2, he has also worked with other artists like Johnny Cash, Ronnie Wood, Jay-Z and Rihanna. He even helped create music for “The Batman”, the James Bond film “Golden Eye” and the musical “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark”. These collaborations and various projects also helped his ever growing career and net worth.

In terms of his personal life, The Edge was married to his first wife Aislinn O’Sullivan for seven years, until they decided to separate in 1990. The two were legally divorced in 1996; they have three children.

In 1993 while on tour, The Edge began dating Morleigh Steinberg; the two married in 2002 and they have a daughter and a son.

1Presented the honour of Amnesty International's Ambassador of Conscience to Peter Gabriel in 2008.
2Owns a home in Malibu, California.
3Supports English football team Leeds United.
4Co-wrote (with Bono) the theme song to GoldenEye (1995), performed by Tina Turner. [1995]
5Christened '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.
6Moved to Ireland when he was just a year old, with his parents and his older brother Richard.
7'The Top Ten Guitar Heroes' list in 2001 named The Edge as the 7th top guitar hero, behind the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Hank B. Marvin, but in front of Carlos Santana and Ritchie Blackmore.
8Although U2 as a band are Irish, The Edge is of Welsh decendancy, his parents hailing from the South Wales town of Llanelli.
9U2 played the former Welsh national rugby station on the first night of the 'Joshua Tree' tour on 25th July 1987. This dates was hastily arranged after a fan had organised a petition of 10,000 signatures pleading for U2 to play this venue. During the show The Edge kicked a rugby ball out into the audience after Bono had said that The Edge's father (Garvin Evans), a Welshman, had predicted that one day his son would play rugby at Cardiff Arms Park.
10His bandmates are Bono, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr..
11Three children with Aisling O'Sullivan: Hollee (b. 1985), Arran (b. 1986), and Blue Angel (b. 1989). Two children with Morleigh Steinberg: Sian (b. 1997) and Levi (b. 1999).

Quotes

#Quote
1[on David Bowie] Next to The Beatles he stands as the most influential artist of all time. He truly altered the course of music history.
2Rory Gallagher was the man for any music fan from Ireland in the mid-1970s. Especially for someone like myself who was trying at the time to master the electric guitar. He was a hard act to follow. He had an ease and command that was enviable. He left us too soon but his legacy is evident in the number of young guitarists who are drawn to his music, and through it to the music that inspired him, the Mississippi Delta blues.
3What I hope people pick up from U2 is that individuality is the crux of what rock'n'roll is about. Every single person who picks up a guitar has the potential to do something unique, and they thwart their potential by trying to sound like other people.
4Of course we want to be tax efficient - who doesn't?
5[on "Beautiful Day"] We were also reclaiming, I guess, some of the best-known musical and sonic hallmarks of the band, on the basis that if everyone else was ripping us off, why couldn't we?
6You can't fret about your songs being too popular and I always get a thrill when I hear one of our records out of context.
7The songs we record are always changing. They seem to have a new aspect depending on the time and place of their performance. Some need to be retired for a while so we can see them in a fresh way, but the best songs seem to always connect.
8It's often the case that our most luminous moments have a pop quality. In the end, we're always trying to express something in the most straightforward way and that's also true of great pop music. It's about clarity and it's about ideas that resonate. I'm a big fan of pop - I just wish I was better at it.
9"Beautiful Day" itself had come through various different incarnations and though we'd always felt it had something, it was kind of hard to see where it was going. Really, the moment it got exciting was when Bono hit on the lyric: "It's a beautiful day". It seems in some ways such a banal sort of lyric, but combined with the music something wild happened and we all recognised it. Then Brian's (Brian Eno) contribution was that fantastically Euro kick drum opening and keyboard line, and that gave us the clue as to where it should go next.
10When you think you probably don't need to be recording then you definitely should, and when you're pretty certain you ought to be recording you probably don't need to. Literally, at any second, if everyone's in the room, then something great can happen.
11Songwriting for U2 is always a very ambiguous process. We write as we record, but in the case of Pop we took that to the nth degree. The loops and machines offered an endless amount of options and in U2 options are not your friends. Limitations, in fact, are often really the thing, and we've made full use of our limitations over the years.
12"All That You Can't Leave Behind" was a chance to rediscover the core chemistry of U2 as a band. On the previous record, Pop, we had deconstructed the concept of the rock 'n' roll band and then on the PopMart tour we'd celebrated the surface of things, not in a cynical way but in the spirit of Warholian pop art. Even so, I think we also realised that in the process we had lost something and the attempt on "All That You Can't Leave Behind" was to find that thing again: what it was to play in a room as a band and to rediscover the eccentricity and elusiveness of what a band can do when they're performing together.
13During my time as a performer, I've certainly felt that I was seeing the end of the guitar.
14[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.
15People always ask us if we think our songs can really change anything. And I always say that's not why we wrote the songs. We didn't write them so they would change the situation.
