Bonos fans would want him to die youngFebruary 24th, 2009 - 12:57 pm ICT by ANI
London, Feb 24 (ANI): U2 vocalist Bono says that some of his fans want musicians like him to die young in the traditional rock n roll style.
The 48-year-old musician adds that many people love the mystique associated with early deaths of musicians like Kurt Cobain and John Lennon.
However, the The Hands That Built America hitmaker has vowed to continue playing until he is old.
One of the things we like about rocknroll is the religiosity. And genuinely people do want you to die on a cross age 33, with a Jack Daniels in your hand, the Mirror quoted Bono as saying.
He added: Our job is in part to de-rail a mythology that isnt helpful to music or musicians.
Currently, Bono and his band-mates are preparing to tour after finishing new album No Line On The Horizon, which is out next week. (ANI)
