"I feel like it's always raining in our songs, that bittersweetness. . . . We surrender too easily to the blues. We, if we're not careful, are bleeding all over the world."

Edge's Mom, Gwenda, Has Passed Away

@U2, June 13, 2012
By: Matt McGee / @mattmcgee

 

For the second time in less than a year, one of U2 has lost a mom. Edge's mother, Gwenda Evans, died Monday in Dublin after a short illness, according to The Sun. Edge's cousin, Ciara, who is Gwenda's niece, was on Twitter earlier today responding to a few fan inquiries, and also asking everyone to respect the family's privacy.

 

 

Gwenda did an interview in 2008 with a small newspaper in Ireland. She also spoke to Jim Henke back in 1983 for a Rolling Stone article about the band.

You may recall that Adam Clayton lost his mom last August.

Please join all of us at @U2 in sending prayers and sympathy to Edge and the entire Evans family. You can join fans in our forum in sending wishes if you'd like.
