Beady Eye's Gem Archer is making "slow and steady" progress following his accident earlier this month (August 1), his wife Lou has revealed.

The guitarist was hospitalised on August 1 with severe head trauma, forcing Beady Eye to cancel all scheduled live performances for August, including appearances at this weekend's V Festival. It has since been reported that Archer fractured his skull after falling down a flight of stairs at home.

The guitarist's wife Lou used Twitter yesterday (August 17) to thank fans for their support and answer questions about Archer's recovery progress. In a series of replies to well-wishers, she revealed that the guitarist is "very poorly" but called him a "tough 'un" and said that "slow and steady, he's getting there".

Asked by @JamesMoon whether Archer is likely to be back in action before the end of the year, Archer replied:


Lou Archer also confirmed that her husband's former Oasis bandmate Noel Gallagher has sent her husband his regards, saying: "Of course he has!"
