Babyshambles Bassist Injured
Drew McConnell fractures spine due to a fall inside the band's studio.
Finding time to record new tunes between frontman Pete Doherty’s crack busts, Brit quartet Babyshambles are apparently as wild within the studio walls as they are in their tumultuous and scrutinized personal lives. According to U.K.’s The Sun, Babyshambles bassist Drew McConnell has injured his spine during an attempt to save a double bass from a disastrous fall inside the band’s recording studio. “I have a hairline fracture at the base of my spine,” McConnell said. And although the instrument didn’t survive, there is good news: “I’m not allowed to sit down for two weeks,” McConnell said, “Joy.”
