Rocker Bono has laughed off speculation he will team up with the Spice Girls to record a new song.
The Wannabe pop stars are due to release a greatest hits album before Christmas (07) and it was reported Bono had been enlisted by record label bosses to write a track for them.
But U2 manager Paul MCGuinness denies the speculation.
He says, "We're great fans of the Spice Girls. But rumours the Bono is to join them as a sixth member is sadly not true.
However British super-producer Mark Ronson is desperate to work with the five-piece.
He says, "I love the Spice Girls. I think their music is great. I would love to do a remix of Stop - that's easily my favourite.
