It hasn’t exactly been an easy week with accidents but on the heels of Sean Kingston’s jet ski accident there’s emerging news that another name from the music industry also dealt with a crash. Guns N’ Roses guitarist, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, was in a serious car crash on Tuesday but luckily he pretty much walked away unscatched and managed to tweet about it in real time!
According to PopEater, the guitarist tweeted, “SUV just plowed into me full speed. Car is totalled, 2 other cars she smashed me into. Well enough to tweet, means I’m not dead yet.”
In case you’re wondering, he was indeed wearing a seat belt and followed up with this tweet and a picture of his car wreck: “Thank you @Toyota for the functional seat belt, air bags & crumple zone, you saved my skull….http://twitpic.com/55fb9x”
With a thriving sense of humor, Bumblefoot tweeted yesterday, “Medical checkup this morning, don’t seem to have any major issues other than a hairy back and a funny voice…” And then he attached a YouTube video of Metallica’s hit song, “Whiplash.”
