"I can't imagine what it must be like to wake up one morning and not have my guitar...' Great images, powerful words and cool clips as Edge launches a new website to promote Music Rising.

'From the Mississippi Delta to New Orleans, the Central Gulf has been the spawning ground of contemporary music from Blues to Jazz to Rock'n'Roll...
But the music was silenced by the storms as whole lives were destroyed and
people uprooted, leaving behind everything...'

The idea behind Music Rising is simple, explains Edge.

'Thousands of musicians have lost their instruments in New Orleans - Music Rising is attempting to put those instruments back in their hands.'
