Larry considering leaving the band?

What the hell?

U2 Drummer Considers Acting Career

U2 drummer LARRY MULLEN is considering leaving the Irish band to become an actor.

The WITH OR WITHOUT YOU rocker is thrilled he's in the world famous group, but since his 43rd birthday he's been tempted by the challenge of pursuing an alternative career, before he's too old.

Mullen explains, "I might take on a new challenge of doing some acting. I like the idea of going to it late.

"But the band is all I've ever wanted, and I get paid for it. I don't want to sound smug, but I've got the best job in the world."

"But different things come into play now that we've all got families. We don't have the freedom we once had."

Why would anybody want to leave the best job in the world?

That statement alone makes me think that the idea of Larry leaving U2 to pursue an acting career is jumping the gun a bit.

Oh come on.

I highly doubt it that Larry would get into acting. HIGHLY DOUBT IT.

Exactly.

Larry has more often than not preferred staying more in the background.

As usual the journalist takes a snippet from the Sunday Times interview, and bang headline "Larry's becoming an Actor"

Oh brother.

Yeah, this is pretty dumb, but I can't believe that it would actually make the rounds.

the only truly weird thing for me is how Larry is quiet absent of this new record, I mean, drumming are pretty filler, unlike those awesome Edge guitars

this is weird, beacuase just the other night, i was thinking larry could be a great actor/model or something like that. i wouldnt get too alarmed, larry never actually said he'd leave the band. the atricle's writer is just assuming thats what he'd do.

Larry gave the band their first job... I dont see why he'd make them lose it.

Personally, I would take that "supposed" news story off this site's news section.

Please, just leave the Sunday Times article, but not 3 lines taken out of context as some "breaking news".

Don't think so. He is rocking pretty dman well on this new record. What do people want from him a drum solo?

Here you go, read this thread. Maybe it changes your mind: http://forum.interference.com/t101453.html

I could see Larry leaving the band to stay at home and lay on top of his billions of dollars in his money room.
