Morrissey Slams Bono's Songwriting
Former THE SMITHS frontman MORRISSEY has launched a scathing attack on U2 rocker BONO -questioning his songwriting talents. The Irish group were recently hailed for creating Britain's best pop lyric, when the line, "One life, with each other, sisters, brothers," from song ONE, beat off competition from The Smiths' classic HOW SOON IS NOW?, which came second in the poll.

He quipped, "I noticed in the newspapers that in a lyrical competition Bono did better than me. He's really nice, but really?"
