it's scarily similar to the claw is it not? maybe the architect u2 hired was feeling lazy and copied something one of his kids has at home!

for those in america you may need this site (i think):

it doesn't matter what they are copying, it's not beyond the realms of possibility that the concept for the claw has been copied. so you think the claw looks nothing like the toy? it's scarily similar if you ask me

I think it looks very similar,but I don't if U2 realize they are copying a toy...

The inspiration was the Terminal at los angeles airport.  They said it.

I think a more accurate "copy" was The Foo Fighters' stage that I've seen on tv from Wembley......open on all 4 sides......most ideas are based at least somewhat on something that's already been done....

I thought we were done with these posts until the next album comes out.

Well, I think u2 would avoid any legal backlash if they allowed Megablocks to use Stand Up Comedy in a Megablocks commercial.  Maybe they could alternate billboards at the concert:  Blackberry loves U2....Megablocks love U2......Blackberry loves U2.....Megablocks love U2. 

And hey...here is another idea.  Maybe after they are done with the Spider Man musical, Edge and Bono could do a Transformers musical.

My first thought? I want one to mount on my station wagon so I can find it after the concert! :D
