Gilby Clarke: ‘I Won’t Be Walking For A While’
Former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke has issued an update on the hit-and-run accident last week which left him hospitalised.
‘Yes, some asshole in his pick-up truck pulled a left as I was going through an intersection on my bike.
‘[Riding companion] JD [King] and I were riding back from Pomona Easyriders show when it happened. Not only did this dumb-ass driver pull out in front of moving traffic but he split the scene after he hit me.
‘He doesn’t know if I’m dead or what. I have three broken bones in my left foot and one broken bone in my right foot. My new Joe King helmet saved my skull, but I won’t be walking for a while.
‘There were some really wonderful people at the scene that helped out quite a bit and I’ve heard from everyone I know, sending best wishes and speedy recovery. So to you, we will rock’n’roll again!’
To date, there has been no further information on the driver of the pick-up truck.
