Our thoughts go out to Gorillaz member/collaborator Del The Funky Homosapien who took a pretty bad tumble off the stage the other night during the band's set!
The band was playing a set at Roskilde Festival in Denmark when Del fell off the stage as they did their hit song "Clint Eastwood." The fall was captured on video and looks pretty painful too! It caused the band to end their set early.
Since the incident, Del has tweeted that he's still in the hospital recovering, and is okay but will be there for a bit.
In a new interview about the incident, frontman Damon Albarn has described what happened and offered up info on his Del's condition:
“Del is in hospital, still in Roskilder" with “seven fractured ribs, and he punctured his lung on one side, lacerated it on the other.”
“He’s gonna be fine. It was just a stage fall, and I’ve fallen off stage several times, off stages way higher than that and I’ve been so fortunate. When he fell down, I was looking at him like, come on get up there’s 80,000 people out there and we need to finish. I thought he was going to be okay… But he really wasn’t.”
“It’s an awful, awful thing that I can’t quite believe. I keep playing it through my head.”
Check out Del's tweet and video of what happened:
Thank you all for the love! I’m doing alright but will be in the hospital for a bit, the care here is outstanding though. Much love to @gorillaz for having me out and I’ll be back soon yall🤘🏾 pic.twitter.com/p383Mc2Qh5— Del The Funky Homosapien (@DelHIERO) July 8, 2018
