Netscape.co.uk report on the upcoming Brit Awards, and dedicate a page to U2’s Outstanding Contribution award. It’s not very flattering: These days Bono and crew are keen to get back into the charts and prove their iconic status and this outstanding achievement award will seriously improve their chances. Hopefully they will then put the greatest hits on repeat, leave the room quietly and retire.
[ update: the article in question has since been rewritten and presents a more positive view on the band. The U2log.com team denies ANY involvement in the circumstances that lead to this rewrite. Muwahahahahahaha. ]
