Alien Ant Farm frontman Dryden Mitchell is recuperating nicely in his Los Angeles home after undergoing back surgery following a tour bus accident last month.
Mitchell, who was laid up in a London medical center after the crash, had surgery to repair a fractured C2 vertebra last week in a Los Angeles hospital, according to his publicist (see “Alien Ant Farm Singer Likely To Need Surgery For Back Injury” ). He’s expected to undergo physical therapy when able, though it’s premature to determine when that would be.
His bandmates, who sustained injuries that were less severe than Mitchell’s, are also healing without problems. David Zajic, the band’s head of security, suffered multiple skull and facial fractures and is also recovering, having been reclassified out of critical condition.
The accident occurred May 22 in Spain, when the group’s tour bus collided with a truck while on its way to a show in Portugal (see “Alien Ant Farm Injured In Bus Accident” ). The bus driver, Christopher Holland, was killed in the crash.
