U2 front man, Bono, is facing a very serious realization during his recovery from a bike accident that occurred in November.
Bono was in a serious bike collision in November while riding his bicycle throughout New York. In an attempt to avoid crashing with another bicyclist, Bono evaded the citizen, but crashed and broke his arm in six places, as well as fractured his shoulder blade and eye socket.
This accident was no joke, and after a series of surgeries, Bono’s musical career may be seriously affected as he states, “Recovery has been more difficult than I thought. As I write this, it is not clear that I will ever play guitar again. The band has reminded me that neither they nor Western civilization are depending on this.”
While the band has assured Bono that his recovery is most important, and that the band and the world will survive, Bono “Personally would very much miss fingering the frets of my green Irish falcon or my (RED) Gretsch.”
The guitar is an art form that Bono is connected to, and if he is unable to do it he will be missing a major creative outlet for him and his music.
Bono is still unsure what the future will bring for him and U2. For now Bono has stated that he is nowhere near thinking about setting up a tour or playing any time soon.
