As a result of the crash, the 54-year-old singer broke several bones including a facial fracture in his left eye socket, three different fractures in his left shoulder blade and a fracture in the left upper arm, which shattered in six different places.
Bono has finally broken his silence after sustaining several severe injuries whilst cycling in New York's Central Park, which required five hours of surgery and caused the band cancel their weeklong residency on Jimmy Fallon's 'Tonight Show.'
Bono suffered several severe injuries when crashing his Bike in Central Park in November
"Recovery has been more difficult than I thought," he wrote in a New Year's note on U2's website. "As I write this, it is not clear that I will ever play guitar again."
During the Nov. 16th crash the 54-year-old singer broke several bones including a facial fracture in his left eye socket, three different fractures in his left shoulder blade and a fracture in the left upper arm, which shattered in six different places. Three metal plates and 18 screws were required while he was undergoing surgery.
Bono went on to explain how he "blacked out" from the impact of falling off his bike. "(I) 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 said.
After his extensive surgery, the Irish singer now has a titanium elbow and it is looking doubtful if he will be ready for the band's 2015 tour in Europe and North America. "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 continued.
Despite the painful injruies and the subsequent surgery, Bono jokingly said his pride was hurt the most. "It was discovered that under my tracksuit I was wearing yellow and black Lycra cycling shorts," he said. "Yes, LYCRA. This is not very rock 'n' roll."
