Bono and The Edge… writing a Spider-man musical… for Julie Taymor.

Right.

Sure.

Why didn’t I see that coming?

    Type

    Bono +Taymor +Spider-Man

    into Google News search.

    There are a lot of news sources reporting this TODAY.

    So, I’m not saying you’re wrong. Maybe it is an old April Fool’s story… I actually hope that it is.

    But if it is, they waited two weeks, and now a bunch of sources are reporting the story.
