    There's good news for Babyshambles' bassist Drew McConnell. Less than six months after breaking his back in a car accident, the musician is walking again. That's so great to hear.

    McConnell's spine was snapped in three places, in addition to broken ribs and shoulder injuries. He was riding his bicycle and a car that ran a red light hit him. Sounds freaking painful.

    McConnell had surgery in July to have metal plates inserted into his back. He told NME that "I'd broken my spine in three places, and it was pretty savage. I'm mobile again – I've been going to physiotherapy every day. I'm on my feet again."

    Glad to hear it, Drew. Get even better, soon!
