Bono, the lead vocalist of U2, has confessed that he is amazed that the band is still going after several decades at the forefront of music. Also, Bono has disclosed that the group splits up regularly but always re-forms.
On a recent podcast, Bono said: “I’m amazed we’re still going. Being in a band is tricky. The older you get, it gets even trickier. Because when you grow up together, you’re used to taking bits out of each other.”
“You’re as good as the arguments you get, but at a certain point, when people are doing well, the male loves to be the lord of his own domain, you know? It’s rough. And you can just imagine why people say, ‘Ah, f*** this, I’m outta here.’ I mean, I really genuinely expect that and the band breaks up all the time. It’s the truth. Then we get back together and I’m grateful we do.”
