Bono Reveals He May Never Be Able to Play Guitar Again

Bad news U2 fans — Bono just revealed that he might have to stop playing guitar forever.

After his biking accident in November, the band was forced to cancel shows — including their Today show residency — and now it looks like the band could have to change things up completely.

“On the day of my 50th birthday I received an injury because I was over indulging in exercise boxing and cycling, which was itself an overcompensation for overindulging on alcohol coming up to the big birthday,” Bono wrote on U2‘s site. “I promised myself I would be more mindful of my limits, but just four years on, it happened again – a massive injury I can’t blame on anyone but myself, mainly because 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.”

He continued, saying: “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 have reminded me that neither they nor Western civilization are depending on this.”
