Irish rockers U2's longtime manager Paul McGuinness narrowly escaped paralysis recently after he was involved in a horrific horse riding accident.
The music mogul, who also manages the careers of singer PJ Harvey and New York rockers The Rapture, had to be taken to hospital after being thrown from a horse while riding near his estate in Co Wicklow.
A source said: "It was a pretty bad fall and Paul broke his collarbone. He was rushed to hospital and was in absolute agony.
"He's still getting over it and knows he has had a lucky escape."
