Bono Reveals Extent of His Injuries Following Bicycle Crash

Now he has revealed the extent of his injuries. He wrote on the official U2 website: “As I write this, it is not clear that I will ever play guitar again.

“The band have reminded me that neither they nor Western civilization are depending on this.

“I personally would very much miss fingering the frets of my green Irish falcon or my (RED) Gretsch… 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.”

As well as breaking his distal humerus in six places, Bono also fractured a bone around his eye socket as well as his left collar gone and his little finger on his left hand.
