Westlife have hailed fellow Irishmen U2 a credit to the music industry - because they remain loyal to each other in a backstabbing business. The FLYING WITHOUT WINGS hitmakers have been inspired by Bono and his group, and claim trust and respect are the key elements which keep them together. Band member NICKY BYRNE says, "In the pop industry there's a lot of backstabbing, and a lot of slyness that goes on. "Once that doesn't exist between the four of us, then we can go on, and we will continue to last. "I think U2 are the heroes of that, they are who we look up to. There are no secrets with them, there is no one getting secret deals in the background, which can happen - look at (boybands) Take That and Blue."
