U2 packing it in?

U2 feared to be splitting, but 'Bono doesn't want to go out with a whimper' | Showbiz | Showbiz & TV | Daily Star. Simply The Best 7 Days A Week

Don't think so. Seems like a made up story to me. Thoughts?

I think I lost my potatoes at the car wash. Don't know what I could have been thinking, the horse and buggy would have been the better way to go. You can't get arrested for flying a horse and buggy under the influence of LSD, can you?

I sure don't know. I just know I miss my potatoes. I knew them when they were just a bag of seeds, looking for a hole in the dirt, where they could grow and pleasure the earth and take life by the root.

Some spectacular fireworks at the end of the shows on their next stadium mega-tour would seem to be in order.

U2 will never "break up". They are way, way past "break up" (much like REM). One day they'll just record their last song, play their last gig, and that will be it. They're already a part time band as it is, and it's pretty clear that being a member of U2 is no longer the full time priority of any of these guys (at least until they tour again)...and hasn't been for some time.

That doesn't mean one of them (probably Larry) might not leave the band some day to do something else. But in that case, U2 would still call themselves U2, assuming they chose to go on. But "break up"? No...that's what rock bands do when they have creative differences, are smashing up hotel rooms or each other (usually both) or they just get so whacked on drugs there's no going on.

I don't think they have the Stones' stamina.
