"Bono leaving U2?" on Boston news tonight

So I caught the teaser of, "And is Bono leaving U2? News on a possible new project for the singer," (paraphrased) on the 5:00 Boston news tonight, but I missed the actual full story. Did anyone hear the details?

I was sure it was crap, but I'm curious about what they were saying.

I remember, 9 years ago (I'm scarily good at remembering pointless things), my friend and i said something at the same time and he said ''Great minds think alike''. My dear mother retorted with ''Fools seldom differ''.

Just had to stick that in, so to speak. No offense to any of you!

Anyway, I remember reading this 'news' a few days back and being similarly unimpressed.

Unfortunately whoever originally reported the quote had no concept of Larry and Bono's individual attitudes towards the band - which ends up with 'U2 are spliiting up' type headlines.

Bono's been saying stuff like this for years - passenger-gate for example.

In fact didn't Larry and adam both resist the Achtung Baby change as well.

The Daily Mail's article just before Christmas was perhaps the biggest load of rubbish I've read about the band in years.

Larry won't kick Bono out of the band......Bono is the best PR man they have ever had. Keeps them "fresh" in everyone's minds.

I noticed this too......Bono's head is much larger than his band mates. Maybe NME's way of saying. The B-man has a huge ego?

Anyway, a cheap trick to get readers.

I saw the actual report on 7 News here in Boston last night, and it was very much reported as a done deal, with the band "having played their last show" and that Bono was already gone off for charity work. They said "fans may not like this, but this is what we're hearing." Now we all know it's not true, but the fact that it was reported that way is just silly.

25 years ago a 'headline' or rumor like this would have had some merit
