Bono revealed yesterday that he may have to put down his guitar for good after his traumatic bike accident in November in a New Year's Day post. "Recovery has been more difficult than I thought," he writes under the section "I IS FOR IRISH PRIDE". "As I write this, it is not clear that I will ever play guitar again." "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 terms," he continues. "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." He also mentions the accident itself: "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. I promised myself I would be more mindful of my limits, but just four years on, it happened again\u2014a 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." Read the lengthy post here; quips Bono, "If you do get to the end of it then you are probably on the same painkillers as me."
