Alien Ant Farm singer DRYDEN MITCHELL has returned to the US where he has had back surgery on injuries sustained in a recent bus crash.
As previously reported on NME.COM, the band and six members of their touring entourage were rushed to hospital after the bus they were travelling on crashed near Navalmoral de la Mata, Spain (May 22). The driver of the bus, Christopher Holland of Crofty, near Swansea, was killed on impact.
Dryden Mitchell was the most badly hurt of the bandmembers, with back injuries. Mitchell initially did not travel back to his native US with the rest of the group, instead opting to come to London for treatment.
Now, according to MTV news, Mitchell returned home and had surgery on a fracture to his C2 vertebra in LA last week. He is now recovering at home. It is understood that he will undergo a course of physiotherapy in the coming months.
The remaining members of the band are also recovering in the US. Guitarist Terry Corso has a broken ankle, bassist Tye Zamora foot injuries, while drummer Mike Cosgrove has minor cuts and bruises.
All live plans are cancelled until September.
