U2’s endgame

February 16, 2011

The dreamy drummer says that the members of the band — who have been together for a quarter of a century — have discussed how to bow out gracefully if and when the time comes.
“We don’t want to get shot down for becoming boring,” said Mullen. “We’d rather go into retirement finishing on a high note and knowing we’ve left a special legacy.”
Speaking of early retirement, we hear that British pop star Robbie Williams — whose return to Slane Castle next year caused 90,000 tickets to be snapped up in a couple of hours — has announced his retirement from the world of pop. The dreaded event will take place in six years, when Williams reaches the ripe old age of — you guessed it — 34.
Though he insists that he just doesn’t want to be an elderly statesman on the pop scene (are you listening, Madonna?), we think there’s something else on his mind. The smart money says that, with his penchant for dropping trou at the drop of a hat, Robbie’s less concerned with the potential drop in record sales than about the droopy effect of gravity on his perky bum.
