'No idea whether I'm gonna be able to play at the Mercurys,' he admits
The drummer used Twitter to explain that he was being taken to hospital yesterday (September 7), and admitted that he is concerned he might miss the Barclaycard Mercury Prize ceremony, which takes place in London this evening.
“Admitted to hospital with a fever and darkside purple rash on my leg. No idea whether I’m gonna be able to play at the Mercurys tomorrow,” Savidge initially posted.
He followed that up with several other Tweets explaining that he was biding his time in hospital by playing Word Mole and reading magazines.
“Horrors were 25/1 before the nominations were announced. Really kicking myself I didn’t get on that,” he wrote.
