What’s Up with Bono’s Back?

It was reported that U2 front man, and worldwide humanitarian Bono has undergone emergency back surgery in Munich today. Details are sketchy, however a statement on U2’s website says:

Bono has today undergone emergency back surgery for an injury sustained during tour preparation training. He was admitted to a specialist neuro surgery unit in a Munich hospital, and is under the care of neuro surgeon Prof. Dr. Jorg Tonn and Dr Muller Wohlfahrt. Bono will spend the next few days there, before returning home to recuperate.

We have previously touched upon back issues in a couple of blogs. For example, see:
