The Who's Roger Daltrey Slams U2 For 'Tax Evasion'
The Who's Roger Daltrey has slammed U2 over claims that they are tax evaders. The Irish band were criticised last month as it was claimed that they are avoiding paying tax by basing parts of their business in Holland. "I find it very interesting that people who spout socialism don't want to pay for a socialist state", Daltrey told The Daily Star. Daltrey also commented on immigrants who don't pay taxes in Britain: "They don't realise how hard the average man has to work to pay those taxes. I don't see anybody in the Government with a pair of balls. They're so spineless. Nobody is in charge and nobody wants to accept responsibility." Meanwhile, U2 guitarist The Edge has reacted angrily to claims that the band are tax evaders. Thanks for the report to Gigwise.com.
