Forget rehab or "exhaustion," or any of those other excuses artists come up with when they can't be bothered to leave their hotel room or their drugs, Supergrass' bassist has a legitimate excuse and probably a first for the rock world which is saying something.
Mick Quinn the bassist of the group was taking a nap after working some very long hours trying to complete their new album. At some point, the sleeping Mick Quinn began sleepwalking, and sleepwalked his way right out the second floor window.
According to reports two vertebrae were broken in the fall and Quinn also suffered a smashed heel, but he is expected to make a full recovery.
Meanwhile though the band's fall tour has been put on hold beginning with their first date September 23rd in Oxford.
