08.08: On this day in 1961, The Edge was born. One of the most underrated guitar players around, we think that a lot of people take him for granted, not really realizing his immense contribution to U2's overall sound. From "Sunday Bloody Sunday" to "Mysterious Ways" to "Vertigo," Mr. David Howell Evans has put his stamp on each and every U2 tune. This is one band where every member is just as vital and important as the next, but, for us, The Edge edges slightly ahead of the other three in terms of awesomeness. This in no way, whatsoever, diminshes the stature of Bono, Larry, or Adam, but kind of just shows how much we loves a great guitar player. And we love that he took a name like The Edge. It's kind of like all of those single-named musicians out there (Madonna, Sting, Cher, Gilbert), but even better because he's got the "The" at the front, denoting that he is the real deal, that he ain't playing around, that he is one cool cat. Believe it.

Hard Rock Calling 2011 Day 1: The Killers Storm Hyde Park

Click here to see a bunch of pics from Day 1.

Despite the rain and the cold, the first day of Hard Rock Calling 2011 showed all in attendance the real meaning of rock. That is, that no matter what is going on around you, an incredible music festival will help you forget about everything else, will transport you to a magical land where everything is awesome and there is only music and good times. Yeah, it was that good.

From The Killers electro-rock-in-the-rain performance on Friday night to Bon Jovi's electrifying set on Saturday, it would be hard to top the two days prior, but Sunday proved that, for some, it is indeed easy like Sunday morning. To name names, Rod Stewart took the flash and vigor of The Killers, mixed it up with the solid awesomeness of Bon Jovi, then threw in his own Vegas-style revue and (voila!) finsished the weekend off with a mix of his own classics, hits from his standards album, and some incredible new songs. He even had a few guests come up and help in the festivities.

Day 2 of Hard Rock Calling 2011 proved to be a 180 turn, weather wise, from Day 1. Sunshine and warm temps ruled the day. Everything else was pretty much the same: great music, amazing people, flowing beer, and great times. Bon Jovi, of course, ruled the day, with their fans queueing up hours before the gates officially opened. From the word "go," Hard Rock Calling Day 2 was non-stop awesomeness. Believe it.
