That really drew me. Then I discovered a guy named Rory Gallagher. Rory died several years back now; he was a white Irishman who a lot of people compared to Johnny Winter.

David Howell Evans born 8 Augustmore widely known by his stage name The Edge or just Edgeis known as the guitarist, keyboardist and vocalist of the rock band U2. A member of the group since its inception, he has recorded 12 studio albums with the band as well as one solo record.
As a guitarist, The Edge has crafted a minimalistic and textural style of playing. His use of a rhythmic delay effect yields a distinctive ambient, chiming sound that has become a signature of U2's music.
On 's The Joshua Tree, The Edge often contributes just a few simple lead lines given depth and richness by an ever-present delay. For example, the introduction to "Where the Streets Have No Name" is simply a repeated six-note arpeggio, broadened by a modulated delay effect.
The Edge has said that he views musical notes as "expensive", in that he prefers to play as few notes as possible. His first guitar was an old acoustic guitar that his mother bought him at a local flea market for only a few pounds; he was nine at the time. He and his brother Dik Evans both experimented with this instrument. The Edge has stated that many of his guitar parts are based around guitar effects.
This is especially true from the Achtung Baby era To Be A Child Again - David Baroni - The Other Side (CD, although much of the band's s material made heavy use of echos.

Livgren was a member of numerous bands in the late s and early s and quickly developed a reputation for complex compositions and poetic lyrics that explored spiritual themes.
His investigations into various religions are reflected in the lyrics of his songs on Kansas' first six albums. He explored themes such as reincarnation, astral travel, apparitions, nihilism and human frailty, among others. In earlyLivgren became interested in The Urantia Book, a series of papers that claim to be a revelation authored by supernatural beings. Its influence can be felt in the lyrics of Kansas' album Monolith.
Livgren subsequently rejected Urantia doctrine, and while on tour with the band in support of Monolith, he converted to Christianity. This was a result of a series of debates in the back of the tour bus with Jeff Pollard of To Be A Child Again - David Baroni - The Other Side (CD Le Roux, the opening act for Kansas during the tour.
The discussions between Livgren and Pollard concerned whether the Bible or the Urantia Book was the accurate record of the life of Jesus Christ.

Due to legal entanglements caused by his contractual obligations with Kansas, Livgren was unable to market AD in the mainstream secular market.
After negotiating with the record label, he received a waiver to perform with AD in the Christian rock market. Unfortunately, this would become a hindrance to commercial viability for the band. AD toured extensively between andsometimes playing bars and clubs one night and then churches the next.
