Sunday 04/03/22:  Gary counts down the Top 5 songs that “saved the life” of U2 lead singer, Bono.

The U2 frontman has had quite a few “brushes with death.”  In 2010, he was laid up with a spinal injury he suffered while preparing for the band’s concert tour.  In 2014 he was involved in a high-speed bicycle accident.  His injuries required five hours of surgery to repair.  Then, in late 2016, it was reported that he had a physical health scare, on which he declined to elaborate.  His bandmate, The Edge, was quoted as saying that Bono had a “brush with mortality.”
