U2's Leading Edge

John Hutchinson, Musician, September 1986

"I DON'T REALLY see myself as a guitar player," says U2's Edge. "I'm more of a songwriter or composer. In looking for a new way to say things with a guitar. I've developed my own style, but it was just something I was led to instinctively, out of frustration at the rubbish most people were putting out at the time."
