(Classic Rock) U2 guitarist The Edge, real name David Howell Evans, surprised the students from Dublin's BIMM music college with an appearance at their graduation ceremony.

The guitarist's appearance was kept firmly under wraps until he was welcomed on stage at the city's Tivoli Theatre with some pearls of wisdom for BIMM's (British And Irish Modern Music Institute) Class of 2016.

He says: "When U2 were in school, we managed to benefit from the tuition of great music teachers. We maintain a strong belief in the idea of music education and that's why we co-founded Music Generation.

"BIMM Dublin is such a cool thing, and I'm delighted to be here and support what I think is incredibly useful and helpful for the rock'n'roll scene in Dublin."

The Edge also recalls their own rocky rise to stardom in which they were almost dropped from their label after their second album October in 1981. He says accepting lower advance payments in return for greater artistic control over their own work helped secure their recording contract. Read more here.
