Guns N' Roses' Richard Fortus injured in a motorcycle accident


Guns N' Roses guitarist Richard Fortus will miss the upcoming Australian tour with his other band The Dead Daisies due a motorcycle accident. You can read below the statement.


Fortus said: "On September 17, 2015, I was involved in a motorcycle accident. As a result, I broke my shoulder blade, collar bone, six ribs, a toe, I have a bruised lung, lacerated liver and a concussion. Amazingly, my doctors have assured me that I will make a full recovery. I have never missed a show in my entire career, and, unfortunately, I will have to miss the entire Australian and New Zealand leg of this tour. I am devastated that I will not be able to play for the Australian and New Zealand fans who have been so supportive and loyal. I am healing quickly and getting stronger by the day. I'm looking forward to rejoining the Daisied for the Kiss Kruise as well as the Whitesnake tour and our own tour of the U.K. and France. I'd like to thank everyone for their well-wishes and can't wait to be back in Australia very soon."
