The U2 frontman said in an interview he still can’t bend two of his fingers after his nasty spill.
Bono is back on stage but still recovering from the biking accident that derailed a week-long “residency” gig on “The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon” last November and delayed an upcoming tour, according to The New York Times.
“It feels like I have somebody else’s hand,” Bono told the paper. “I can’t bend these, and this,” he said, pointing to his hand.
“But they say that nerves heal about a millimeter a week, so in about 13 months I should know if it’s coming back.”
Talking about his forearm and elbow, Bono said lots of work had been done: “It’s all numb here, and this is titanium.”
But after intensive therapy, the iconic singer said some progress has been made.
“The shoulder’s better, the face is better,” he said.
The artist admitted he can no longer strum.
“But this is the hard bit because I can’t play guitar,” he said while cracking a smile at his bandmates.
“They don’t seem to mind.”
