BONO feared spending the rest of his life in a wheelchair when he finally sought treatment for his dodgy back, his best mate and U2 bandmate THE EDGE revealed last night.

The singer suffered a slipped disc in Germany last week while dancing during a rehearsal for the next leg of the band's tour.

The Edge said: "Luckily he did realise, when he could no longer walk, that he needed to go to the doctor.

"Had he not done anything about it, it could have been serious and possibly permanent.

"He just overdid it and hurt himself.

"He was clearly in shock about the implications of the injury."

Happily, the strummer reckons that time off the road, including the cancellation of the band's Glastonbury headline slot next month, will have benefits.

He added: "This is probably the most rest Bono will have had in decades. Knowing him, he'll want to take some short cuts and get ahead of himself."
