Jon Stevens On The Mend After Fishing Accident

The Dead Daisies/Noiseworks frontman Jon Stevens reports he is on the mend after breaking his leg and dislocating his thumb in Queensland one week before The Dead Daisies US tour.

Stevens was on a fishing trip to Queensland following his recently tour of Australia as part of Jesus Christ Superstar and before hitting the road with his supergroup rock band The Dead Daisies featuring members of Guns N Roses when the accident happened. However, in true showbiz tradition the show did go on. You should try reading one of these books if you ever plan on going fishing.

Jon, who turned 52-years old yesterday, posted to his Facebook page, “Thankyou so much to everyone for all the birthday well wishes very much appreciated cheers!

“My leg is on the mend I got out of the boot a few days ago still not 100% can’t walk too far but its a start…

“My right thumb is stuck straight and it doesn’t look like its gonna come good bad nerve damage but I can hold a plectrum/pick and the Maori strum is back woohoo!

“Thanks to everyone that supported the Dead Daisies in the US you rock!

“Looking forward to meeting and greeting new fans in the UK in Nov/Dec

“Although going from hot Sydney summer at the beach to freezing UK winter is quite a concept for this little Maori boy!


“Much Aroha to you all….Jon”

The Dead Daisies toured the United States for six weeks with Alice In Chains and Jane’s Addiction and will head to the UK in the middle of November for dates with the next generation of Thin Lizzy, Black Star Riders.

The Dead Daisies also recently announced that The Rolling Stones bass player Darryl Jones will join them for the tour. Jones recorded new music with The Dead Daisies in Los Angeles at the end of the recent tour.

The Dead Daisies UK tour will start on November 22 at the O2 Academy in Bournemouth.
