U2 Sued For 5M

New York:  TMZ is reporting this morning that U2's song "The Fly" maybe the creative work of Paul Rose, a writer, guitarist with 12 solo albums of his own. 

The claim is that the boys straight up copied the music for the "The Fly" from his 1989 song "Nae Slappin"  Rose states that he provided Island records a demo that happened to be around the same time that U2 was signed to the label.

What is interesting to note is that Paul has awaited 25 years to sue and now expects 5M in damages. Gotta wonder if this is just a cash in or real cause for claim. Heck you take a listen and tell us what you think.
