"John Lennon really did kind of write the rule book. As a tunesmith, as an irritant, as a willing taker of pratfalls. He was in the queue for the mud pies -- all of that stuff that I do, I got from his little red book."

Julian Lennon: Bono's Chest Pain Scare is False Alarm

@U2, August 21, 2011
By: Sherry Lawrence

 

The Irish Independent reports that Bono was taken to a Monaco hospital on August 17 after complaining about chest pains to his wife, Ali. After 48 hours of testing and observation, his heart doctor told him that he should take plenty of rest and discharged him. He was seen having dinner on Friday evening in Monaco with Ali, Julian Lennon and Irish designer John Rocha.

UPDATE: Julian Lennon has posted the following on his Facebook page:

For those whom are fans of Bono, the recent reports about him going to hospital with chest pains this weekend, were completely false & just the media trying to stir things up, as usual... He did, however, go for a regular check up last week, but was given the all clear! He's in fine form! ;)

UPDATE #2: U2.com has also refuted the original story with a statement that says, in part:

Bono is in good health and enjoying a family holiday in the south of France. The sighting of Bono at Princess Grace Hospital was due to a routine check up.
