U2’s the Edge Offers Update on Bono’s Health
Speaking with the Kevin and Bean morning show on Los Angeles’ premier alt rock radio station, KROQ, U2 guitarist the Edge offered listeners an update on Bono’s health following last month’s cycling accident.
“He managed to come out of it with what you could only describe as injuries from a car crash, literally, multiple fractures of bones in his elbow and in his back,” he told the radio show. “But he’s doing OK.”
As severe as his injuries were, things could’ve been much worse for Bono. “We’re kind of lucky he was wearing a helmet,” the Edge explained. “He’s made of tough stuff and he’s bouncing back. He’s so upset about the fact that, unfortunately we’re about to announce, we’re not going to be able t odo the Acoustic Christmas because 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 offers hope for fans, though. “He’s doing physic to keep the joints active twice a day.”
And as for that show in New York City’s Times Square for World Aids Day, the Edge simply said, “It was an amazing experience, but it did feel a little bit like we were cheating on Bono,” talking about playing with Bruce Springsteen and Coldplay’s Chris Martin. “It’s not an experience I would want to repeat again.”
