'One of the most inspirational periods of rock music history'

30 Oct 2006
Edge collected the 'Innovation in Sound Award' at the 2006 Q Awards at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London today. Here's what he had to say.

If you have an inquiring mind, if you are drawn naturally towards the frontier of scientific and technological discovery. If you are the kind of person who finds themselves asking the question why? Far less often then why not? you should probably head for Silicon Valley and get a job at Microsoft.

Thanks to Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois, Bono, Adam and Larry and Paul for making it possible.
