Baroness Send Out Thanks From Hospital for Overwhelming Support Following Bus Crash
Despite suffering major injuries in a bus crash in England last week, the members of Baroness seem to be in good spirits. Three of the band members have offered an update from the hospital to thank fans for the overwhelming outpouring of support they’ve received.
In a new posting at their website penned from the hospital, they write, “Thank you to all of you who have been sending the tidal wave of positivity our way. We are uplifted by its sheer magnitude and power. Every single one of you is making our days and nights easier and our recovery quicker. Thank you all so much. We are truly lucky to have such incredible people on our side. A sincere and heartfelt thank you from each of us to you.”
They close the note with a photo from the hospital, and note the absence of guitarist Pete Adams by revealing that after he was treated, he was allowed to leave and returned to the United States. In addition to Adams, three of the five crew members aboard the bus were also treated and released.
As for the other members, singer John Baizley suffered a broken left arm and left leg in the incident, while drummer Allen Blickle and bassist Matt Maggioni each had fractured vertebrae that resulted from the crash outside Bath, England.
