That video again @ 01:24 pm

I'm currently hearin: window in the skies

Hi Everyone,
Sorry if there's a better place I should be posting this, but I can't find any more threads anywhere about who's who in the Skies video. I was following along before I headed out of town for the holidays (where I was internetless), and when I got back I couldn't find anything about the video anymore on Interference or atU2 or anything new on U2log. But there are still a lot of unsolved mysteries, no? Does anyone want to weigh in on these (or point me in the right direction for people still talking about this video)?

00:23 Ella Fitzgerald, right?
00:40 Trent Reznor (NIN) (or Dave Grohl?)
00:57 Cozy Powell?? Paul Cook? Topper Headon? (the clash) (drummer)
01:01 Sam Cooke? (fancy dancer)
01:04 Temptations or Four Tops? (line of fancy dancers)
01:13 ??? (blue drummer)
01:55 The Temptations, yeah?
02:29 Shirley Manson (Garbage)?
02:36 Jackie Wilson?
02:38 Smokey Robinson? Sam Cooke? ("oh no" singer)
02:46 Smokey Robinson (Caruso?)
02:55 Ronnie Spector? Dusty Springfield?
03.02 Queen?
03:03 ?? (backlit)
03.11 ??? shirt off, white pants kick (someone wrote P Funk?)
03:16 ??? two guys kicking
03:37 Maybe Pete Seeger? Or Carl Wilson of the Beach Boys? Or The Band?
03:44 Nirvana (Kris Novoselic)? Someone said Pete Townsend but that doesn't seem right...'

Thanks!! Also, I noticed the second video for Skies on YouTube (the U2 clips) wasn't posted by U2official, but it says U2.com in the upper right of the video itself-- so is it in fact an official release from U2 and if so why wasn't it posted by U2official?

I know there was a big thread about this in the subscriber side at U2.com if that's any use to you. Also, interference.com IIRC.

I dug up the thread on Interference for you:


Start with the fifth post down, and continue on to the next page. There are more posts in the following pages identifying some of the identified people, I think.

I don't subscribe to U2.com, but thanks anyway...
I will post something on the interference link, so thanks, but it doesn't look like anyone's posted on that thread since before the holidays, either...
I used to read WIRE on Yahoo, maybe I'll try there.
Any other suggestions?
