Another case of creative writing by the music media

Contact Music, not exactly the bastion of truth has this headline for an article about the split of "supergroup" Blue.

Blue - Webbe Blames Elton For Blue Split

However this quote from Simon Webbe can be found in that very same article;

Webbe explains, "We decided to have a break because Sir Elton told us: 'You have a certain amount of longevity in the business. If you keep releasing pop albums as Blue you'll go stale.'

"His comments made sense. He's a legend with almost 40 years in the business. I realised it would be best to take time out.

I'm sorry but sounds like they made the decision on their own after considering some friendly advice from Elton.

Another example of the media turning Elton into the villian when in fact its a non-story about a group that no one really cares about anyway.
