Los Angeles: U2 frontman Bono says that he may never play the guitar again following his bike accident in New York last November.
Bono made the comment in a personal review of the year, published on the band's website on New Year's Day, reports hollywoodreporter.com.
"I broke my hand, my shoulder, my elbow and my face, but the real injury this year was to my Irish pride as it was discovered that under my tracksuit I was wearing yellow and black Lycra cycling shorts," Bono wrote, adding that "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," he goes on to say, later revealing that he now has a titanium elbow.
"For the last few weeks I haven't been able to move around physically, so I have more than made up for it by leaving my mind to wanderlust, untethered except electronically," added the 54-year-old.
