Bono - Bono Gives Thanks To Surgeons Who Fixed His Back

Rocker Bono has publicly thanked the German surgeons who mended his back last year (10) and gave him a new lease of life.
The U2 frontman was forced to scrap a series of U2 shows last summer (11), including a headlining slot at Britain's Glastonbury festival, after rupturing a spinal disc during a horrible fall.
He spent months in hospital and underwent extensive physiotherapy and the rocker is now more thankful than ever to be taking the stage again after briefly fearing he would never be able to perform again.
While rehearsing for the 2011 Glastonbury festival, the hitmaker has been making light of his scary injury, jokingly referring to himself as "Robo-Bono".
And in video footage captured by The Sun, he says, "So - Bono 2.0. Through the wonders of science I'm not just fixed, I'm better. Last year I came out of surgery in Munich and it went very well. If it hadn't then things could have been very different for me."
