    Go to here and check the video –taken by a hand-held, making it feel more intimate- of Bono talking about his back injury, which caused the band to cancel their summer tour. Bono says that he is fully recovered from an emergency back surgery he had in May. He hurt his back while rehearsing for the tour, ironically enough. In the clip, he apologizes to fans that won't get to see the band back on the road for another year. The band announced that they will reschedule the dates for 2011 and ticket holders should retain their summer 2010 tickets, as they will be honored at the corresponding 2011 date.

    "I can sit. I can stand. I can move around a bit. Feeling strong, feeling confident," Bono proclaims while walking around the recording studio. "And I'm ready and rebuilt by German engineering, better design I'm told, and I'm going to be fighting fit next summer in the U.S." He compares himself to a car. How European.

    How much do you love Bono?
