U2 Singer Bono's Private Jet Loses Door Mid-Flight

(Radio.com) The rear door of Bono's private jet fell off his private leer jet plane mid-flight earlier this week, according to the U.K.'s Daily Mail. No one was injured, but Bono's luggage may be somewhere in a field in Germany. The mid-air incident occurred during a two-hour flight from Dublin to Berlin, where U2 were set to accept an award at the Bambi International awards, a German media award ceremony. The other members of the band weren't on the plane; Bono flew out early to attend a diplomatic function with the German minister of economic cooperation and development, Gerd Mueller. A source close to the singer told the Daily Mail: "He was extremely lucky, the plane could have gone down. About an hour into the journey they heard a big thud coming from the rear of the planeā€¦The entire door along with Bono and his companions' luggage had fallen out mid-air. "They don't know if the door and the contents landed over water or land but they were extremely lucky. They were at an altitude where anything could have happened and they are all feeling very lucky to be alive."

Def Leppard's Vivian Campbell Stem Cell Transplant Complete

There was good news from the Def Leppard camp on Tuesday as guitarist Vivian Campbell announced that he is home and recuperating from stem cell transplant treatment that he underwent in his cancer fight. Campbell wrote to fans on Tuesday via his Facebook page, "Home... So glad that's over. Time to recover/recuperate and grow some hair. Thanks for all the love you've sent - much appreciated! Normal service will be resumed shortly." Prior to the treatment, Vivian wrote the following message to fans on September 29th on his Facebook page, "As many of you know, I've been scheduled to start a stem cell transplant and as soon as I got home from tour I began the necessary tests and preparations. I'll be admitted to hospital soon for all the yucky bits, so in the meantime I'm headed to Target to stock up on cozy pajamas, fresh underwear, and a sackful of car-porn." He continued, "While I can't say that I'm looking forward to the process ahead, I'm very much looking forward to what I feel will be a most successful outcome. Next year will be very busy for Def Leppard with a new album and a world tour, and frankly, I don't think they would sound as loud without me, so I have no intention of letting the team down! See you all (with hair!) in 2015."

"During the show he gave 100 percent, but he hurt himself. "Jumping around with two stents was a bad idea. I can't explain the amount of blood or where it came from, but it was horrifying on his bus after the show. Bret looked at me and said, 'Just head to Champaign, we have to make Thursday's show up.'" "Over the last two weeks, Bret was in and out of 6 hospitals throughout the Midwest," Evick continued. "Including the incredible Mercy Hospital of Northwest Arkansas. The staff and doctors were unbelievable and took incredible care of Bret. "The fans and venues have been amazing and their support unprecedented. Bret continues to be steadfast in his dedication to bring the music to the people. He truly has to be held down to not perform."
