A new instrument for U2......

.....the handclap !

That's definitely a North African influence, it's on at least 3 songs - I know it's been discussed a few times elsewhere, but maybe it's time for U2 to put together an "ensemble" band like the Foo Fighters, the Eagles, Stones, Pink Floyd etc do.

Not necessarily Eno/Lanois (although that would be awesome) but some kickass session players:

A 2nd guitar
Percussionist
Keyboards
Some soulful female backing singers
Horn section for some songs
Strings

Bring a whole new organic dynamic to the U2 live experience, and not rely so much on tapes

Just a thought...........especially if they're going to play stadiums with the huge stages
