Post by Baz on Mon Oct 27, 2008 4:46 am







Welsh rockers Feeder escaped with their lives after their bus crashed and then exploded on the M62 motorway on Friday night (October 24).

The band, who had played a gig at Glasgow Barrowlands that evening, were enroute to their next destination of Lincoln, where they played the Engine Shed yesterday (October 26), when the accident happened. The motorway was closed following the incident.

A band spokesperson said "Everybody is safe. But all the merchandising and catering is destroyed.

"All the crew were left in their pants - JD Sports kindly dressed them all today."

The spokesperson also confirmed that the UK tour, whioh stretches into November, will continue unaffected.

Feeder's Grant Nicholas has released a statement about the bus accident involving his band's touring crew last weekend (October 24).

The group were travelling from Glasgow to Lincoln overnight when driver Colin Campbell noticed smoke and flames coming from the back of the bus. He immediately pulled onto the hard shoulder and woke the 13 sleeping crew members to evacuate them.

Moments after everyone was safely away from the vehicle it burst into flames.

Speaking about the incident, Feeder's frontman said: "It's terrifying to think what might have happened, just shocking. We can't praise Colin enough for his quick thinking and action, he saved all their lives. We'd also like to thank the police and firefighters who dealt with the situation and of course, JD Sports for their generosity."

Following a quick call to the Lincoln store, the sports fashion retailer provided the crew with 800 worth of clothing and footwear to replace their personal belongings lost in the fire.

Feeder's tour was unaffected by the accident, and continues until December 2.
