Ian Brown has spoken to NME.COM about the onstage attack during a gig in Sheffield five weeks ago (13 June)

The incident left him suffering from whiplash and needing ten stitches in his head.

Speaking exclusively before his headline set at T In The Park’s King Tut’s Wah Wah tent Brown said: “Some crackhead just pulled me straight off the stage, I didn’t even get a chance to grapple with him. As a result I got ten stitches in my head. I got a little whiplash of the neck. I was walking around like [cricketer] Gladstone Small for a while. I still can’t move my head from left to right.”

He added: “I’m the kind of kid who likes to do stretches and that. I haven’t even been able to do that. I’ve been going for walks and all but I’ve lost a little fitness levels because I’ve been injured that way.”
