The Edge Net Worth: The Edge is an English musician who has a net worth of $240 million dollars. The Edge is the guitarist, keyboardist and backing vocalist for the wildly successful Irish band, U2, which he co-founded in 1976. In addition to his work with U2, he has also recorded as a solo artist, and written music for two musicals with band mate, Bono. He was born David Howell Evans on August 8, 1961, in Barking, London, England. Being a loner in high school, music served as David's haven. He took both piano and guitar lessons and mainly performed with his brother, Dick. Later on, he built his own first guitar and became a member of the band Village. It was in 1980 that U2 was formed, following Larry Mullen Jr.'s ad asking for people to join a band. In such a way was conceived the Dublin based band that consists of Bono (vocals and guitar), The Edge (guitar, keyboards, and vocals), Adam Clayton (bass guitar), and Larry Mullen, Jr. (drums and percussion). A U2 member since its inception, the Edge has recorded 12 studio albums with the band and has released one solo record. Thanks to his use of a rhythmic delay effect that yields a distinctive ambient and chiming sound, Edge's minimalistic and textural style of playing has become a signature of U2's music. The Joshua Tree (1987), Rattle and Hum (1988) and Achtung Baby (1991) are some of the few releases that fetched them worldwide fame. Off stage, he has three children with his first wife Aislinn O'Sullivan, who initiated their separation in 1991. Going through a difficult period at the time, Edge's pain is said to have influenced Bono's songwriting in such singles like "So Cruel," "Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses" and "Love Is Blindness." The Edge welcomed a daughter in October of 1997, this time with Morleigh Steinberg, a belly dancer from U2's 1992-1993 Zoo TV tour
