Rocker Ricky Wilson believes the Kaiser Chiefs have the will to become global superstars, and is even more confident now Bono has echoed his thoughts.

The British band supported U2 on their recent European tour and singer Wilson is overjoyed to have received complimentary support from Bono.

Wilson says, "We talked to him, and we were telling him about how we'd been inspired by them. Because I said we'd got the buzz and he said, 'That's good, because a lot of bands I speak to never feel that buzz. They're just happy playing small shows.'

"But we're very ambitious and so are U2 and so are Coldplay and we won't stop until we're the best."
