Gary and Don channel Bono

With apologies to all members of U2, they're legion of fans and lovers of music everywhere...

All is quiet on New Years Day
Gary and Don don't have much to say
They will be with us
Be with us Night and Day
Monday night, negotiations adjourned for the day
Now we just wait to see if they'll ever play, On New Years Day...


At any rate, sing along with your own interpretations if you will,  we all do seem to have some spare time on our hands... While you're at it, marvel at Bono's hair stylings from our period piece.

Now that's a near NHL style mullet if ever there were one!

Below some of the reviews of Monday's New Years Eve negotiations and where perhaps they will lead us to in 2013.

Keep you change handy, we suspect that there's a few more tunes on the U2 jukebox to go before the current labour situation becomes a little clearer.
