Supergrass star seriously injured in bizarre accident

Hospitalisation leads to gig cancellation

Supergrass star seriously injured in bizarre accident
Supergrass have cancelled their 'homecoming' gig at Oxford’s Carling Academy due to an injury.

Bassist Mick Quinn suffered an accident which left him with a broken back, forcing the cancellation of the gig on September 23.

Quinn sleepwalked out of a first floor window of the villa he was staying at in the South of France.

He was rushed to a specialist spinal unit in Toulouse where surgeons operated to repair two broken vertebrae, and are also treating a smashed heel.

He is expected to make a full recovery.

Frontman Gaz Coombes said: "We hope the crazy fool gets back on his feet as soon as possible. I’m sure he’ll make a full recovery; he’s a tough cookie.”

The Oxford show will be rescheduled, although there is no date set. Ticket holders can apply to the vendor for a refund and will be given first refusal on tickets for the rescheduled show.
