Happy Birthday, Mister MacPhisto!

I was visiting atu2.com just a moment ago, browsing through the latest news headlines, when I happened to notice a rather interesting article on the "This Date in U2 History" sidebar... on May 7th, 1993, 10 years ago yesterday, MacPhisto was born!

May 7, 1993: U2 rehearses - Bono creates MacPhisto

U2 play a dress-rehearsal for the upcoming European tour in front of a small group of fans in Rotterdam. Bono creates a new character for the European tour, and wears a red version of his black, leather "Fly" outfit. When the tour begins, this new character would be called "MacPhisto" and would not wear the same costume tried out tonight, instead donning a gold lame suit and devil's horns.

Happy Birthday, Mister MacPhisto... you old devil, you!
