– For pleasure, in addition to writing songs. But so have not The Edge, Jimmy Page or any other guitarist husband knows a titanium elbow as I have now?
– I broke my hand, my shoulder, my elbow and my face, but the greatest damage took my Irish pride when it was discovered that during my workout clothes wearing yellow and black cycling shorts lycra. Yes, LYCRA. It is not very rock’n’roll.
