Fans want me to die in rock’n'roll style: BonoFebruary 24th, 2009 - 1:05 pm ICT by IANS
London, Feb 24 (IANS) Bono, lead singer of Irish band U2, has revealed that some fans want him to die in an unforgettable rock’n'roll style.
According to mirror.co.uk, the 48-year-old singer claims most fans want musicians to die early like Kurt Cobain and John Lennon as it adds an aura of mystique. But Bono wants to be different and play until he gets old.
He said: “One of the things we like about rock’n'roll is the religiosity. And genuinely people do want you to die on a cross age 33, with a Jack Daniels in your hand. Our job is in part to de-rail a mythology that isn’t helpful to music or musicians.”
