4.13.99 - The Irish Star

U2 guitarist The Edge dropped by The Royal Hospital in Donnybrook last night to lend a hand and support his father Girvan Evans.

Mr. Evans was a founding member of the Wales-Dublin-Mayo choir in 1966 and last night they released a CD at a small reception.

Edge spoke of the new album "Yep, there is some fine tunes already finished for the album" he went on to say that the new album was back to basics for the band " The new album is U2 the band, back to the mid 80's, we have decided to drop all the technology and get back to just drums, bass, guitars and vocals"

The Edge went on to praise his father "I am very close to my dad, we get on very well, thanks to him I grew to love music because as a kid there was always music in our house"

The Edge could not stay long with his dad as he had to get back to the studio where Bono, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullin were waiting to record with The Edge "I flew up here in the car just to show a little support and grab the new CD but the rest of the band are waiting for me back at the studio so I have to get back there quick"

The Edge also said the album content was being kept secret including release dates of U2's much awaited album.
