I think it's kind of funny how they updated Bono's look for the "Artists" icon. That piece he wrote on Ive was clearly based on this. ;)

How about some background and or a link, for those of us who don't have a clue as to what the OP is referring to?

I was talking about "that piece that he wrote for Ives" part.

After all these years, I never realised that the Artists button was Bono...

This thread lead me to find this interesting article (http://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2011/01/the-secrets-hidden-inside-apples-most-famous-icons/69956/#slide1) about hidden secrets in Apple icons.

The artist logo is designed after Bono, the lead singer from the band U2. After a quick google search, it seems to almost perfectly match this shot.

Looking nice. Though I have to ask, has the icon been redesigned, or is this exactly the same image, but a higher resolution version taken from the same source file allowing us to see more details of the hair shape?

As I remember this is the shot from the DVD U2 live from Chicago from 2005 with the song Original of the species
