"It is true . . . that I once danced -- or, to be precise, pogoed -- with Van Morrison in Bono's living room."

Poll Results: U2 Fans Don't Trust Bono on New Album News

@U2, June 29, 2012

Poor Bono. For years he's been the main mouthpiece of the band, especially when it comes to talking about what U2 is doing in the studio and how the band's new albums are progressing, sounding and so forth. He's known for grand statements, like the comment at the beginning of June that U2 had just had its best three weeks in the studio since 1979.

That prompted us to run a new poll question on our home page asking how much U2 fans believe Bono's proclamations about new albums and studio progress. The results? About 60 percent of the 2,160 fans who voted said they find Bono either "not believable" or "mostly unbelievable." Less than 10 percent found him "fully believable" on these matters. Ouch.

We've just posted a new, related poll question: Which band member do you find most believable when discussing U2's studio and new album work? We'll leave Bono in there as an option to see if he can redeem himself. Cast your votes on our home page, www.atu2.com.
