U2's Bono has sent a letter to NME this week (June 25) following the band's manager Paul McGuinness's comments regarding Radiohead's decision to release their last album, 'In Rainbows', on a pay-what-you-like basis as a download.

Earlier this month, McGuinness said Radiohead's album release "backfired" and that U2 would not be following the Oxford band's example when they release their next record.

In the letter, printed in tomorrow's (June 25) edition of NME, Bono says that he disagrees with his manager's comments, calling Radiohead "courageous and imaginative in trying to figure out some new relationship with their audience".

"Such imagination and courage are in short supply right now," he continued. "They're [Radiohead], a sacred talent, and we feel blessed to be around at the same time."

Read the full letter from Bono in the new issue of NME, out nationwide tomorrow.
