    Family first!

    U2 star Bono is taking a break from music to spend more time with his family. He wants to enjoy an extended break away from work in order to enjoy his life with his wife and children. We can't blame a man for desiring to do so. It's a noble goal and cause.

    Bono told Rolling Stone that "I'm not so sure the future hasn't dried up. The band are like, 'Will you shut up about being irrelevant?' We'd be very pleased to end on No Line on the Horizon (but) I doubt that…We have so many (new) songs, some of our best. But I'm putting some time aside to just go and get lost in the music. I want to take my young boys and my wife and just disappear with my iPod Nano and some books and an acoustic guitar." Bono – he's just like us, with wanting to get lost in his iPod Nano!

    The Edge also revealed some U2 info re: U2's future, saying, "It's quite likely you might hear from us next year, but it's equally possible that you won't."

    So it's nebulous and up in the air. We can deal with that. Bands need to go away, recharge the batteries, catch up on their lives, stir up their creativity and then come back! We need them to go away in order to miss them, right?

    What is your favorite U2 song?
