Bono released from the hospital

You may have heard me mention on last Friday's show that Bono (lead singer of U2) had to undergo emergency spine surgery at a Munich hospital. I'm starting to hear more details about his injury, but the good news is that he was released from the hospital today. The bad news, U2 will have to postpone the US portion of their world tour, which was supposed to begin next month, until next year. Evidently Bono was suffering a severe compression of his sciatic nerve and had a herniated disc. I have no idea what that means, but it sounds painful. So much so in fact that Bono was actually having some paralysis in his lower legs. The doctor expects a full recovery, but the singer of the biggest band in the world has to relax for several weeks, forcing the postponement of their tour. Heal well, Bono!
