U2 singer Bono is opening up about his horrific Central Park bicycling accident.
In a long statement at the band’s website, Bono explains how he feels after his accident. He stated: “Recovery has been more difficult than I thought.” “As I write this, it is not clear that I will ever play guitar again.”
He also went on to state: “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.”
Bono blamed the accident on “overindulging” in exercise in order to compensate for overindulging in alcohol.
“The consequences of this freak accident are significant enough that I will have to concentrate hard to be ready for the U2 tour in fitness term, 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.”
U2’s next tour is scheduled to begin in May.
