Bono still unable to play
Five months on from his cycling accident U2 frontman Bono says he still can't play his guitar.

Frontman of band U2, Bono, has revealed that parts of his left hand are still numb and that “it feels like someone else’s hand”.

He remains hopeful that he will be able to play the guitar again, though not in the immediate future.

“I can’t bend these [fingers], and this is like rigor mortis. But they say that nerves heal about a millimetre a week, so in about 13 months I should know if it’s coming back,” he says. “But this is the hard bit because I can’t play guitar. They [the band] don’t seem to mind.”

Bono underwent five hours of surgery after his cycling accident in Central Park, New York, last November. He broke his arm in six places as well as sustaining fractures to his eye socket, shoulder, elbow and hand.
