Bono’s bike injury that went public last November in New York appears it is worse than we thought.
Now, the U2 lead singer says he doesn’t know whether or not he will be able to play guitar again after a “freak accident” where he broke his arm is six different places while leaving his eye socket, hand, and shoulder blade fractured, according to an online post on U2’s website titled, ‘A to Z in 2014”.
“I blanked out on impact and have no memory of how I ended up in New York Presbyterian with my humerus bone sticking through my leather jacket. Very punk rock as injuries go.”
“I personally would very much miss fingering the frets of my green Irish falcon or my (red) Gretsch. Just for the pleasure, aside from writing tunes.” “But then does the Edge, or Jimmy Page, or any guitarist you know have a titanium elbow, as I do now? I’m all elbows, I am.”
