If you’ve ever wondered about the Daniel Lynch’s recovery, here’s an update on the guitarist for the U.K.’s Evisorax, who was attacked by a pack of goons back in January and left for dead with a “severely broken” leg.
You may recall Dan was curb-stomped…meaning, they put his leg against a curb, and kicked or jumped on it in such a way as to break it in fucking half.
If you missed this story somehow when we first reported on it, go here.
Turns out Daniel is on the mend, and his band did some recent shows in the states.
“We did an entire DIY East Coast tour. Starting in New York and traveling down to Miami and then back up,” Daniel tells us.
“Then a piece of shit promoter who bailed on us after the show with all the cash and nowhere to stay in a bar that had been victim of a killing spree the year before simply because of the fact it’s predominantly a gay bar.”
That’s pretty gay.
“Some dude got drunk in the city of Roanoke and then got in a cab, asked for the nearest gay bar, got out at the bar, walked in and shot as many people as he could,” Danny tells us.
Now we’re fucking bummed out.
Enough about dead gays, what’s up with your leg, homey?
“Having to cope with the agony of my leg, and only being standing for a few days, I then went on tour after 6 months of not being able to and had to adapt to playing upright again.”
Weening himself off the pain killers was no fun either.
Dan said he was “determined to get through” the ordeal, and recover. And while not 100-percent, he’s getting there.
“I made a promise to rise above, still record the new album and do our debut USA tour, both of which I’ve kept and I booked the tour in my hospital bed and from being bed ridden at home,” he notes.
Happy ending? Not so much. The fucks responsible for his shattered limb remain at large, and will likely never pay for their sins. Fucking savages.
