U2 guitarist The Edge recently spoke to radio station KROQ about Bono's health. The singer was involved in a bike accident in NYC's Central Park, which caused the band to postpone a The Tonight Show residency and which required emergency surgery.
The Edge said, "He managed to come out of it with what you could only describe as injuries from a car crash, multiple fractures of bones in his elbow and in his back. But he's doing okay."
As a result, U2 cannot play KROQ's annual Almost Acoustic Christmas show, which they were due to headline.
"He's been told by his doctors that he's got to stay put. He's back in Dublin right now and basically he can't move for the next couple of months," The Edge explained. "Basically his left elbow was shattered so a lot of the work was reconstructing the joints and putting in wires and plates. He actually showed us an X-Ray a couple of days later and it looked like a miniature of the Eiffel Tower was in his elbow and then the same had to happen with a fracture of his pinky, the joint there was totally messed up, so that needed a bone graft. And the most vulnerable was actually his upper back, the scapula because they couldn't put any plates in there or they decided not to do surgery. So he has got to be very still and not move around 'til that's really healed."
So yeah, Bono fucked himself up. That shit sounds painful! We hope he recovers fastly and fully. He's Bono, for God's sake.
