Don't listen to the band, but what a fucking bum out.

I was hit by a car on my bike this Summer - totally minor, though. The truth is that people in cars do not watch out enough for people on their bikes.

Damn that sucks. Never heard of/listened to this band, but regardless, that is pretty damn unfortunate.

It was a hit and run, so unless the police find the driver he will be paying his medical bills

I can't even begin to think of the number of times I've almost been hit by some asshole not paying attention the what they're doing. It sucks that this had to happen to him. I hope the dick that ran off gets what he deserves.

What's up with these bands getting themselves into shit and asking everyone for money.

Next time I can't pay my rent, I'm going to email every label I can think of and have them ask if any bands on their roster would consider chipping a few bucks my way for living expenses.
