Bono Terrified Of High Notes

U2 frontman BONO has sleepless nights before concerts because he gets terrified he will let fans down by failing to hit his high notes. The VERTIGO hitmaker is highly critical of his own performances and also worries he will damage his voice if he doesn't deliver the high notes in the right way. The 46-year-old says, "The morning before a show I get nervous. I can wake up in the middle of the night with a sick feeling. "I have to hit very high notes and if you hit them wrong you can put your throat out. So there's a 'Will I? Won't I?' aspect to it. "That sense of, 'How could I meet the levels of anticipation?' If you are a rock star and need 25,000 people telling you they love you, obviously you must be a very insecure person."

Bono, We love you not just for the high notes, but becaue of the kind of person you are. If you ever think that you'll ruin your voice hitting a high note at times, just sing an octave lower that time. No one will care and then you'll keep you're beautiful voice will stay beautiful, and your true fans will understand. And we know that you guys give 200% at all your concerts.You're the man Bono, and we love you and every member U2. THE GREATEST BAND IN THE WORLD. That's what U2 is! Love you and God Bless, Robyn
