U2 Are Being Sued For Accusations Over Plagiarism
The Lawsuit makes specific reference to this, noting:
" Although perhaps the most popular rock band in the worlds in the 1980s, by that decade's end the band felt in need of reinvigoration. "
Despite acknowledging the plagiarism at the time, Rose was apprehensive about any repercussions that his accusations may have on his fledgling career as a guitarist.
A report that was taken from the NY Post regarding the circumstances of Rose's lawsuit stated:
" Rose's lawyer, Thomas Mullaney, said his client is only coming forward now-some 26 years later-because he was just starting out at the time of the alleged theft and he didn't want to ruin his career. Rose also only recently found an ex-Island Records employee who will corroborate his story, including that 'Nae Slappin' was often played at Island records when U2 was looking for inspiration of 'Achtung Baby, Mullaney said."
A virtuoso guitarist originally from Newcastle, Paul Rose has established himself as one of the leading lights in the guitar industry. Whilst primarily a rock guitarist his playing touches on blues, country, jazz and folk. With a list of 12 solo albums behind him, Paul continues to reign as one of the supreme voices of the modern guitar virtuoso.
