    I hope they lose. Maybe that will stop "Edge" from destroying the hillside above Malibu with his 5 mansion project.

    Can't see it making any difference either way. Even if Rose won, any settlement would be loose change to U2. I still think they'll contest it but out of principal. They won't want to be seen as plagiarists.

    But I'm in two minds about it. What if they did get the idea from Rose's song? Virtually all new music is inspired by pre-existing music, it's the nature of the art. Virtually all music is derivative.

    Paul Rose is a lovely guy and a great guitarist though so I guess it would be nice if he got a bit of recognition and a small slice of the Bono pie.

    Who knows but I can see how that might happen. It may have taken years for him to realise it had happened. He might have dismissed it as no big deal when he did and only later thought about the full implications. It might only be recently that he feels in a position to do anything about it.

    The bottom line is that either the claim is valid or it is not. The length of time taken to state that claim does not alter the facts.

    Happened with Led Zeppelin last year and it was 40 some years later.

    This post is a natural product. Variances in spelling & grammar should be appreciated as part of its character & beauty.

    I always got a kick out of this denial. Vanilla Ice totally ripped off Queen and David Bowies Under Pressure -beat in Ice Ice Baby but denies it. It's such an obvious rip off.
