U2s Edge Reveals His Love For Glam Rock

Our all-star 10th anniversary issue is nearly here, happy birthday Uncut!

Trending Now

Just one day to go, ’til Uncut’s spectacular tenth anniversary issue hits the shops. Opulently packaged in a big red box, it comes with a free CD of Bob Dylan’s favourite tunes, and a free book – a compendium of the finest rock facts, no less – called The Uncut Book Of Revelations.

This month’s Uncut is an all-star special, where you’ll discover that, as a schoolboy, The Edge from U2 “wasn’t in touch with my feminine side! Marc Bolan was a little too effeminate for me when I was young. But when I realised I could play ‘Hot Love’, I reassessed T.Rex.”

Elsewhere, Noel Gallagher remembers the making of “Don’t Look Back In Anger”, “the one where every fucking body will sing at an Oasis gig.” He tells Uncut how the song was written at the soundcheck before their first ever big arena gig – “and we actually fucking played it that night, in front of fucking 18,000 people. Sat on a stool. Like an idiot. I never fucking do that now.”

Read the full exclusives with The Edge and Noel Gallagher, plus plus an A-Z of Bob Dylan, interviews with REM, Johnny Marr, Johnny Depp and Keith Richards, and an all-star audience with Paul Weller, in the new Uncut, on sale tomorrow, Tuesday July 3.
