Supergrass star in sleepwalking accident
- 3 September 2007
Supergrass have cancelled any immediate appearances after bass player and vocalist Mick Quinn suffered a broken back on holiday.
It is reported Quinn sleepwalked out of the first floor window of a villa, while he was on holiday in the South of France. Surgeons in Toulouse operated to repair two broken vertebrae and a smashed heel.
The band were having a summer break after completing their sixth album. 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.”
Supergrass were due to perform at a one-off homecoming show at the Oxford Carling Academy at the end of September, but the show will be rescheduled.
Quinn is expected to make a full recovery, but it is thought this could take several months.
