No U2 breakup on the horizon


(Writing and reporting by Dean Goodman)

Just in case anyone was wondering, U2 have no immediate plans to break up, eveu2n if the Irish rockers still find it a struggle to make albums after almost three decades of practice.

The band, making a whistle-stop visit to Los Angeles on Monday to promote its 12th release “No Line on the Horizon,” sat down for questions at a radio broadcast hosted by Scottish singer/actress Shirley Manson.

Perhaps unaware that U2 are mere mortals, the former Garbage frontwoman asked whether U2 was “a finite proposition.”

“One crap album and you’re out,” singer Bono immediately joked, possibly forgetting the unloved 1997 release “Pop.”
