Pain machine

hi everyone I'm a new one here! I was just wondering about something I've read in a couple of places...

Some machine to help Larry with his pain? I've heard it being refered to as 'the machine that goes ping!'

Help, anyone?

Hmm... I remember reading about that somewhere. It might have been while the Vertigo tour was still going.

Don't know but I've seenpics of him where he's got those skin-colored strips on his arms. Are you talking about Larry's arm or his back pain?

I think the one I read about was for his arms.

The tape is like the stuff the volleyball players wore in the olympics - a support for overworked muscles/tendons

When I read the thread title I thought "Pain Machine" is the title of a new U2 song. Cool song title.

I haven't heard anything about a machine for Larry, I only know that he had a physician to take care of his arms on the last tour.

I think I'd need such a machine, too, because my arms and most of all my wrists are overused and overstretched all the time. I've been suffering from pain in my right wrist for years now, it comes and goes, and right now it's hurting because of all the work I've done in recent weeks. And I'm not even a drummer.

Larry wore the strips on his arms, as someone mentioned before, I think they were warming his muscles.

Also, Bono was in treatment for his bad back on the last tour.

I found it!

Faith - Mojo, 01 Jul 05

I was reading that article and it mentions "a machine that goes 'ping.'" I wasn't even looking for it!

It's actually a pretty good article, especially the part where Edge talks about the "problems" he had onstage during "New Year's Day."
