Bono Unsure if He Can Ever Perform Again After Bike Accident

Bono’s bike injury that went public last November in New York appears it is worse than we thought.


Bono’s bike injuries are leaving the singer questioning if he will ever play the guitar again, as the singer releases transcript titled “A to Z in 2014”.

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”.

“As a result I have cancelled every public appearance and decided this missive is all the communication I can manage for the first half of 2015, beyond muttering and singing to myself of course,” said in the transcript.
Now with a titanium elbow, the 54 year old revealed he has been on painkillers for weeks to the point where he would have to “concentrate hard” to be fit for U2’s upcoming tour.
Bono also revealed, “I can’t blame anyone but myself.”
Bono on his injuries: from “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.”
If he is unable to play the guitar again,
“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.”
