U2's Bono: 'We'd Be Happy To End Our Career Now'
U2 frontman Bono has raised questions about the band's future. The singer has admitted the Irish four-piece, who are set to re-issue their 1991 album "Achtung Baby" on Monday (October 31), have become irritated by him questioning the relevance of the rock veterans in the current musical climate. He told Rolling Stone magazine: "I'm not so sure the future hasn't dried up. The band are like, 'Will you shut up about being irrelevant?' We'd be very pleased to end on [2009 studio album] 'No Line On The Horizon' [but] I doubt that." Guitarist The Edge said the four-piece, who recently completed their "360" world tour, hinted that the band may return next year but "it's equally possible that they won't". Bono said if the band do return it is likely to be some time off. He added: "We have so many [new] songs, some of our best. But I'm putting some time aside to just go and get lost in the music. I want to take my young boys and my wife and just disappear with my iPod Nano and some books and an acoustic guitar." Thanks for the report to NME.com.
